Number 18 of of top 50 places to live within an hour of London as featured in Country Life is Kingsclere in Hampshire.
Kingsclere itself is a village full of period properties and 3 pubs so plenty of community spirit.
This pretty 3 bedroom semi detached cottage is on the market with Hillier Wilson for £399,000. It has 3 bedrooms and views over the countryside from the rear of the house.
