Making the decision to downsize or resize is often prompted by a change of circumstances. Retirement or semi-retirement, a promotion or career switch, the starting of a family, all of these big shifts in life are exciting but daunting and require careful consideration of where you are next going to live. A myriad of thoughts will be milling around your mind, for there’s a lot to consider. Things such as:
- The style of living you want
- Knowing what will match your interests and tastes
- Understanding what your budget should be
- How you can maintain family connections and start afresh without concern
With the variety of landscapes, townscapes, amenities, and activities, Buckinghamshire can appeal to families with a mix of interests within their unit; no one need feel left out. Both the countryside and the towns can offer either modern or rustic lifestyles, it really is up to you to choose. Restaurants, shopping, and things to do in the area can match most budgets without feeling like a London rip-off.

On top of all this, the rail links, road network, and easy access to several airports make keeping in touch with friends and family about as easy as it can be. The rail lines through Milton Keynes can have you in Euston in just over half an hour, and trains from Oxford, Bicester and Haddenham & Thame whizz you into the west side of the capital too.
