Location The general character of Oak Road and Woolston is suburban with traces of the former rural settlement that gave it its special character in the past.

From Woolston Train Station (0.2 miles), Blue Star & First bus routes (0.2 miles), Lidl Supermarket (0.5 miles), Greggs Outlet (0.4 miles), Superdrug and Boots (0.4 miles).

Other local points include: local pubs including The Obelisk Pub (0.4 miles) and Yacht Tavern (0.6 miles), Peatree Green Nature Reserve (0.6 miles) and although you can spend most days relaxing by the river and basking in the tranquil setting, the fast-paced city of Southampton is just a stone's throw away.
