Moving from London to Berkshire with Camp Hopson
It’s no secret – thousands of people are moving out of London or are thinking of doing so in the near future. Many are searching for a better quality of life in a bigger property and lots of outdoor space. It’s no secret that it’s possible to get all this for lower prices than most London properties. This has been a consequence of the lockdown where the city’s properties lack of outside areas couldn’t be more apparent.
Berkshire is one of the benefactors from this shift in emphasis, from cosmopolitan to suburban properties. Hundreds of people are moving into cities and towns all over the county, with Newbury is a particular favourite due to its market town appeal. And Camp Hopson can relocate you from London to anywhere in Berkshire.

Is It Possible to Commute between Newbury and London?
When we discuss potential relocations with people making initial inquiries, one of the topics we go over is commuting. People might be looking past London for their housing needs, but many still need a direct travel connection for work reasons. Typically, you’ll only spend between forty-five and sixty minutes for a one-way trip to or from London.
While it might take time for you and your family to adjust from the bustle of London, you won’t have to worry about finding another job. You can have a four or five-bed detached house with a garden and keep working in the capital. Once you start to calculate the financial benefits, you might wonder why it took you until now to make the change.
Berkshire offers a lot of greener spaces, lower levels of pollution, and lots of variety of places to live. There are excellent schools, healthcare facilities, and local amenities. You can choose somewhere, like Reading and Basingstoke if you need city life. But Newbury is a firm favourite, primarily because of its business links and its scenic charm.
What’s the Average House Price in Berkshire?
Now we’ll look at some of the financial data that people often ask about before they consider moving. The general average property price in Berkshire is £455,061, and £703,095 specifically for detached houses. For Central London, the average home is £1,676,430. There will be a large range of prices throughout Greater London, and less detached properties available to compare. But it’s striking that a detached property in Berkshire is over ½ the price of the average Central London property.
Berkshire is close enough to London to make it a viable daily commute for people who need to keep working in the capital. The most expensive train season ticket is £6,616, but there are various cheaper options. According to Numbeo, a family of four’s cost of living (not including rent or mortgage) in Reading is £2,511 per month. Compare that with £2,988 in London for the same data range, and there’s a difference of £477.
Just by looking at three sets of cost data, it’s easy to see the financial benefits of relocating to Berkshire. The transport links throughout the county are excellent, with further improvements being made regularly. Moreover, this could be specifically important for renters who can’t get their foot on London’s property ladder. Why not move a bit further away and finally become a homeowner?

Can I Store My Belongings if a Delay Happens?
Storage is the ideal way to keep your possessions safe, especially if you have valuable items that would be difficult to replace. Due to the nature of moving to a new home, there is always the possibility of delays. This doesn’t mean you should panic if your moving-in date changes. Camp Hopson has an excellent range of storage options to help you keep your items safe and secure.
