The leafy village of Crowthorne is perfect for those who want a more peaceful side to life. With plenty of beautiful walks in the Berkshire countryside and an array of independent shops and cafes, Crowthorne is a perfect place to call home.

Earley & Lower Earley

A big hit with families, the suburb of Earley (situated just four miles from central Reading) has green open spaces in abundance. Of particular note, Maiden Erlegh Nature Reserve is a hit with dog walkers and keen runners.


Bracknell is the ideal location for young professionals and families looking for an area more relaxed than inner city living but commutable to Slough, London and beyond. Home to The Lexicon shopping centre, Coral Reef Waterworld and The Lookout Discovery Centre, it has something for all ages.

South of Reading

Stunning properties, great schools and convenient access to central Reading, the picturesque villages south of Reading are hugely popular among commuters looking to offset their busy working weeks with a suitably rural home life.
