    We are moving to Twyford and wondering if anyone knows nicer areas to live and/or places to avoid. We have a 7 month old baby so need to think about schooling as well. My husband works in London and I need to drive to Reading. The cross roads seem always very busy….

    Hi ‘rocket’

    We have a family home in Wargrave and think its a fantastic location, its near to Henley and Reading for shops ect, close to the river and under an hour on the train from London via Twyford as you probably know. is a fantastic set up if you have children, they have an outdoor farm, lots of activities laid on for free for the kids and a cafe serving food and drinks.

    For schools, The Piggott School in Wargrave is OFSTED rated ‘good’ but I don’t know what its rep is like.

    Good luck!




    Twyford has three great strengths.

    1) A huge range of clubs, societies and activities with a strong sense of community
    2) Good schools
    3) Excellent rail links to most of the UK

    I know it is a generalisation, but it is noticeable that people moving in from London very often don’t support local events and societies. They buy large black cars adding to the ever increasing congestion on the roads. Some even ignore the local schools and drive long distances to private schools.

    Those who value Twyford for its strengths, rather than as a dormitory, will find a warm welcome and discover there really are no bad areas. A wide range of housing types mean that you will find something to your taste.

    Sadly we seem to get most planes on sunny days, but that’s the price you pay for living in the Thames Valley.



    You could try looking at Hurst. Close to Twyford railway, M4. Semi rural, lovely Primary School.
