Belchers Farm is set in a private position on the edge of Ascott, just to the east of the village of Stadhampton, which provides local amenities, including a shop and petrol station, as well as two public houses one of which, The Crazy Bear, also has its own farmshop.

Horse racing can be enjoyed at Newbury, Ascot and Windsor, with Cheltenham also being within easy reach. Henley-on-Thames is also notable for its sporting and recreational attractions including rowing and the annual Royal Regatta. There is also a local network of walks and rides with nearby footpaths and bridleways across the surrounding countryside.
There are a number of excellent schools in the area including St Edwards, The Dragon School, Summer Fields, Headington, Oxford High School and Magdalen College School in Oxford, as well as Abingdon, Moulsford, Cothill House, Radley College and Wycombe Abbey.
