Find out more about our range of luxury serviced apartments and their availability.
Developed by Cranbourne Homes, we have set the highest standards for quality accommodation and individuality.
We have a strong reputation for craftsmanship and attention to detail, building with stylish, easy living in mind.
We bring together unique sites, architectural expertise and quality materials to ensure each development is more than just bricks and mortar.
The new development within the historic Old Gaol exudes style and comfort. As well as the established apartments we have recently launched luxury serviced apartments at the core of the Old Gaol building.
A building once constructed by prisoners from the Napoleonic war, it has now been developed to the highest standards and its apartments are ideal for business users looking for a comfortable, convenient base, or visitors who may want an extended stay and the flexibility that serviced apartments offer.
We also place great importance on our positive contribution to the areas in which we build. At the Old Gaol we are introducing a cafe and restaurant quarter and reopening the waterfront area to the public in addition to new riverside moorings. All available to residents.
The historic Oxfordshire town of Abingdon-on-Thames lies to the south of Oxford, and as its name denotes, is located on the banks of the River Thames.
Founded in the Saxon era, Abingdon-on-Thames was a flourishing agricultural centre and renowned for wool trading and textiles.
In more recent decades it was to make its name as the centre for the MG car production and the Morland Brewery, echoes of which can still be seen in the town.
Modern Abingdon-on-Thames is thriving – centrally positioned between internationally renowned centres of science, technology and academia. The space-related industries located at Culham, the Diamond Light Source at Harwell and of course the University city of Oxford are now within what is known as Oxfordshire’s ‘Science Vale’.
All of this greatly contributing to the local economy and success of this Thames Valley region.
Abingdon-on-Thames’s reputation for a centre of academic excellence is also growing, with schools such as Abingdon, Radley College and St Helen & St Katherine’s now being seen as first-class destinations for students from around the world.
For visitors, Abingdon-on-Thames provides a wealth of opportunity – whether messing around on boats, exploring the historic streets and buildings or using the town as a centre from which to explore the tourist trails.
Access to the Cotswolds and the Midlands is easy. Abingdon-on-Thames straddles the A34 which links both the M40 and M4. Train services from nearby Didcot provide easy access to London (Paddington) and the west country via Bath and Bristol. Birmingham New St station is a little over an hour’s journey. Heathrow airport is only 50 minutes away by road.
So, whether you’re using Abingdon-on-Thames as a base to explore the region, or as a focus for business, you’ll find a warm welcome and a relaxed location.
