Five Tips when Moving to Berkshire

Berkshire is becoming one of the most sought-after counties for relocation in the UK, and it’s easy to see why. With the backdrop of some of the most beautiful landscapes in England, Berkshire is home to many quaint villages, unique towns, and vibrant cities. Berkshire has something for everyone, and you’ll find your ideal location here.

Newbury is one of Berkshire’s favourite relocation spots, especially for people escaping London for somewhere with more character and a better quality of life. To help would-be Berkshire residents to find the right place for their next relocation, Camp Hopson has some top tips for moving to Berkshire.

Five Tips when Moving to Berkshire –

Go online – the best way to start looking for your ideal new home is to do some initial online searches. The first thing to do is work out what type of house or apartment you’re looking for. If you’re moving to Berkshire to you, you might be downsizing, so a comfortable cottage would be an excellent place to start your search. Then you just add the number of rooms, bathrooms, garage or storage spaces and what sort of garden you want. A lot of people move to Berkshire for its green spaces and fresh air, so you might want to try your hand at gardening.

Make a list – It’s not just the perfect property you’re looking for, it’s the whole package. Where you live should suit your tastes and interests, as well as your typical weekly schedule. If you need to visit a GP on a regular basis, it’s a good idea to live near to a surgery. More importantly, you want to be able to live life and enjoy yourself. If you’re a bit of a thespian, then you’ll naturally want to be near to a local theatre. Everything that matters to you needs to go on your list for your ideal relocation in Berkshire.

Contact an estate agent – this is an important one. Getting in contact with an estate agent will help you pool a list of potential properties. They can send you photos with full specifications, well in advance of viewing. That way, you can get them to help you to keep the potential winners to save time. The last thing you want to do is waste time with places you don’t like, especially if you’re travelling to visit them.

Visit the area – there is no replacing getting a first-hand feel for your potential new location. Plan on visiting your preferred area at least two times, more if you are able. You need to see what the area is like at various times of the day, just to see if it meets your preferences. If you’re looking for a quieter place to live, it’s worth making sure that you aren’t near any main roads or vibrant pubs. It’s also another great excuse to get to know Berkshire.

Reliable removals company – just like an estate agent, it’s worth contacting a reputable removals company as early as possible. You’ll know you’ve made the right choice if they’re happy to discuss your move, even if you’re just planning it. The Camp Hopson team are always available to chat about your potential move and to give some insights into our favourite places in Berkshire.

Newbury and Other South-After Places in Berkshire –

Newbury – the Camp Hopson team is slightly biased with our top choice but it’s easy to see why. Newbury is one Berkshire’s best-hidden secret, and it’s becoming a favourite relocation location for ex-Londoners. It’s a vibrant market town that manages to retain its charm while being a great place to live.

Bracknell – this is one of the most popular commuter towns. That’s due to its reasonable house prices and excellent transport links to London. This is the ideal place if you want more for your money but still need to work in London.

Windsor – home to Legoland, there is plenty of things to do in this tourist favourite. Windsor has excellent transport links and a healthy economy. It also has some first-rate education choices, which makes it a popular choice for young families.

Woolhampton – this small village lies between Reading and Newbury offers a more tranquil setting for Berkshire life. If you’re looking for a traditional English village with a few local shops, a friendly pub and lots of green space, then Woolhampton is for you.
