Where to move to? Views on Princes Risborough or Bledlow Ridge?

My husband and I currently live in London but we're looking to move out to somewhere a little more green. The problem is that he works inn Welwyn Garden City (north of London) and I work near Slough, so all the nice places which are commutable for both of us are also the standard London commuter belt areas (and therefore ridiculously expensive!). It seems crazy to pay for the benefit of being able to get into central London quickly when neither of us work there, so we've started looking further out towards Oxfordshire.

We have an 18 month old son, and will want more kids in the future, so wherever we decide to live needs to be good for children - both when they are little, and also primary and secondary schools.

Bledlow Ridge and Princes Risborough are all just about commutable for us, and they look lovely. Does anyone have any first hand experience of bringing up children in these areas? Any thoughts on which would be the best area to start looking in? Or any watch outs?

Thanks in advance! smile
