    Hi all. My fiance and I have decided to move out of London, we will still be working in London but will hopefully have the option of flexible working.

    Family live on the isle of Wight and we have both agreed that moving to the IOW is not practical for still commuting to London so we have now decided Hampshire – but no idea where!

    We want something close to Isle of Wight so we can visit family but also commutable to London – and we’d like a village/countryside location so not in a big city. We looked at Brockenhurst which is stunning but feel the 1.30+ commute time isn’t doable unfortunately. Ideally within 1-2 miles walkable distance to a station too.

    Grateful for any recommendations on little villages, little towns etc that have the countryside feel but we can get a train to London also.

    Thanks in advance!



    Hi Kim,

    I was wondering what you ended up doing re the above. Did you move to Winchester, if so, where? My husband and I are thinking of doing the same, also leaving North London. Shame you didn’t get any replies!




    Hello Elizabeth (and Kim),

    Just joined this website and disappointed at the age of the comments and lack of replies.

    Thought I would suggest looking in the Sunningdale area. It is on the Waterloo line and lovely and leafy, surrounding roads are not full of HGV’s. Lots to do, Virginia Water on the doorstep for starters, can drive to Windsor through the Great Park in 10 Minutes. Heathrow is within easy reach but not on the flightpath (who knows if that will stay the same long term!) and excellent schools. Many commute from here, plenty of seats on the trains. Just ask if you need more information.
    Good luck
