Help and advice on buying property in Winslow and the surrounding villages

The small market town of Winslow is situated in the north of Buckinghamshire, to the south of Buckingham and north of Aylesbury, and an equal distance from Milton Keynes.  It is an entirely self-sufficient community, and has a full range of activities and services for young and old alike.  

If you are considering moving to Winslow Town or the surrounding villages, Stacks Buckinghamshire can provide invaluable advice to ensure that you get the right house, for the right price, in the right location, on the best terms and with the minimum of stress.

Our clients may be moving some distance, or be local; they may be too busy or not know where to begin;  they may be unable to find a suitable house or have too much choice – see our case studies to see how we’ve helped people in your situation.

Speak to Stacks Buckinghamshire today to learn more about why Winslow is a town to explore when considering a move out of London.

Whilst Winslow does not have its own mainline train station, Milton Keynes station is a short hop, and from there it is a half-hour journey into Euston.  Others choose to join that line at Leighton Buzzard (a few minutes shorter to get there & easier parking), or go south to Aylesbury Parkway to enter the west side of London via Marylebone.  See ‘Future’ below for further trainline developments.

Winslow is 6 miles to Buckingham, & 10 or so miles to Aylesbury.  It is also a similar distance to Milton Keynes & the M1 or in the opposite direction to Bicester & the M40. 20/21 miles to Oxford & Northampton & 44 miles to London.

Bus services run to Buckingham & Aylesbury, and there is a community car service which can be arranged for short journeys.

Addington, Adstock and Padbury lie on the route to Buckingham from Winslow – full of character houses and lovely walks.  See Buckingham for more about living near Buckingham.

To the west of Winslow,  ‘The Claydons’  – East Claydon, Middle Claydon, Botolph Claydon and Steeple Claydon – were historically the accommodation for workers at the local brickworks and suffered from the red brick dust.  Now that is closed, the villages no longer suffer from the dust, and are set in some lovely countryside.  Steeple Claydon has the amenities, but lovely properties are available in all these villages. Beyond these to the west, the HS2 route is planned, near the Verney Junction.  See Bicester for more information in this direction.

Little Horwood & Great Horwood, Swanbourne, Mursley, Drayton Parslow & Stewkley are the villages east/north east of Winslow, and each have the full range of properties .  Good pubs & good schools abound. Take note of the EastWest Rail development plans & see Milton Keynes for more information on Househunting in this direction.

Granborough, Green End  & Hoggeston, Littlecote & Dunton are to the south / southeast and have some very interesting older properties, particularly thatched, and as well as good, more modern properties.

There are pre-school and primary options within Winslow, plus the secondary school is the newly built Sir Thomas Fremantle.  Winslow is also in the catchment area for The Royal Latin Grammar School in Buckingham. Don’t forget to be fully aware of school catchment areas for both grammar and local secondaries!

Swanbourne House is a very popular prep school, just outside Winslow.  Other prep schools are easily accessible including Winchester House at Brackley and Beachborough near Westbury, and Ashfold School to the south.

The all-through independent Akeley Wood, Thornton College and senior-only Stowe School are north of Buckingham.  Private schools in Milton Keynes are also very reachable.

Winslow has a good number of shops including newsagents and a selection of independent retailers. There is a thriving farmers’ market held on the first Sunday of each month, and a weekly Wednesday market in the square. Within the town are several pubs and restaurants including Indian, Chinese and Italian, as well as some very popular tearooms and delicatessens.

There is a GP surgery, with a planned new Medical Centre on the cards, as well as a dentist, optician & a chemist.  In addition, Winslow has kept its banks and with its huge variety of clubs & societies, you really might never have to leave!!

If you do, Buckingham is probably the go to location (Waitrose!), and major shopping is available a short drive away in Milton Keynes, which also has every type of leisure activity possible, from badminton to parkour, theatres to fishing.

The popular Winslow Show, a gymkhana and agricultural event, is held every late August bank holiday Monday.  There is also a wide range of sporting activities and facilities for all ages.

Of historic interest is Winslow Hall, built in the early 1700s on the instructions of William Lowndes, the Secretary of the Treasury under William and Mary, and possibly designed by Sir Christopher Wren. Winslow’s oldest surviving building is St Laurence Church, parts of which date from the 13th century. The National Trust properties of Claydon House and Stowe Landscape Gardens are nearby.

The East West Rail between Oxford and Cambridge is being revitalised, and the plan is to re-open the station at Winslow, which will only make the town more attractive as a family base.

This may have a road route to accompany it, and whilst the plans for this are not finalised yet, it is difficult to be assured that any open land will remain so in perpetuity (a general fact, too, of course!). 

The Proposed HS2 route goes through Buckinghamshire, but Winslow is further east and will not be impacted by this route directly. Cross-country roads may be  affected during the build phase, eg towards Aylesbury.

Whilst it is obviously important to understand these future developments, it is of course impossible to know for sure on any house purchase what might happen in the future.  For example, the impact of HS2 will vary enormously from house to house, and sound can travel in unexpected ways rather than line of sight.  Also, if and when it is built, the HS2 trains will be electric and far less nuisance than current trains.  Other properties may be adversely affected during the construction phase, even a long way from the actual route.  With careful research and an open mind however, you may feel that the eventual impact will not be significant for you, and you can potentially invest in a property at a good price.
