Yes have lived nearby for 20 years...what do you want to achieve from the move?

Dsis lives in Amersham - she's been there for about 13 years now, and they really like it. The transport links are good - she and her dh work in London, so that is important for them. When we have visited, it has always looked really nice.

They don't have children, so I can't tell you anything about local schools etc, I am afraid.

Currently in South east London, need to be able to commute in for work, but looking for house/garden/good primary school...the usual reasons, really wink

Might be worth looking on the Euston to Milton Keynes London Midland line too - cheaper and still has good schools etc. Leighton Buzzard to Euston is half an hour.

Yep Sth Bucks is a lovely place to live and raise a family - meets all your criteria. Also look at Chiltern Line thru GX (22 mins to Marylebone)...and as Squid says there are lots of other train lines that would work as well

Depending on your budget there are some lovely hamlets within 2 miles of Amersham.
Winchmore Hill
Little Missinden
You could look at Amersham old town lots of quaint properties or if you wanted a new build maybe look at Chesham Bois. There is also an over ground direct train that is on the metropolitan line (the purple one on the tube!)

I grew up in Amersham.
Plenty of Schools, a big Tescos/little Waitrose/M&S food.

Amersham is great, especially the old town - quite expensive though.
Also recommend the villages around the north Chilterns. Tring to Euston is 35 mins and the villages / countryside all around is lovely and loads of things to do with kids and good / outstanding schools.
