Downsizing in Buckinghamshire

Resizing to Buckinghamshire is as much about swapping the hub-bub of city living for the tranquillity of the countryside, as it is about moving from an exclusive penthouse apartment to somewhere with a bit of space. Buckinghamshire offers growing families fresh air in chic surroundings, and prospective retirees somewhere to breathe and relax in peace.

Where do we start? It has a bit of something for everyone…

  • Engaging market towns steeped in history
  • Breath-taking countryside, including the Chilterns (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty)
  • Activities and points of interest everywhere you turn
  • More National Trust properties and sites than any other county in England
  • Superb travel links by rail, road, and air, making it easy to reach families in far-flung places

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. And it’s so easy to dip into the capital when one feels the need; anything is possible really.

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. In fact, Chiltern Railways is rated in the top third of operators for passenger satisfaction, running reliable routes into Marylebone from such towns as Aylesbury, Amersham, Beaconsfield, so commuting is well catered for. The M40 provides easy access north and south, the M1 isn’t far away, and the M25 makes heading into London very simple. Add to all that the M4, and you can even head out to the west easily too.

Put simply, however, whether you’re thinking about heading away from the capital, shifting completely from one part of the UK to another, or simply downsizing to something smaller and more manageable, how the logistics will work ongoing matters. Will it still be easy to keep in touch with family? Will the quality of life be what you’re hoping it will be? Can you find peace AND fun when you need them?

All good questions, and we’d suggest that the location of Buckinghamshire does offer a ‘Yes’ in answer to each one.
