Winslow Area Guide

Nestled against rolling farmland, the picturesque town of Winslow is a gem in the English countryside. With its vast history and the active local community, it’s not hard to see why Winslow is the choice of many for their home.

Living in Winslow

Steeped in history

Now the only town in Buckinghamshire to hold a weekly livestock market, Winslow was established as a market town in 1235 and is filled with characterful old timber-framed houses mixed with more modern buildings.

The town boasts the beautiful Winslow Hall, whose architecture is thought to have been designed by Sir Christopher Wren, and the beautiful St. Laurence church along its main road, and continues traditions such as the Winslow show, which takes place every August Bank Holiday Monday, something locals look forward to every year.

Property in Winslow

As well as the idyllic cottages, thatched-roof houses and timber-framed properties, you will also find Victorian-era homes and new-builds in Winslow, catering for all. The town is also surrounded by similarly picture-perfect villages, including Little and Great Horwood, Swanbourne, Addington and Granborough. However, despite feeling like it’s in the heart of the country, Winslow is ideally based halfway between Aylesbury and Buckingham, meaning amenities are never further than 20 minutes away.

Why you should make Winslow your home

Whilst only a small town, Winslow is full of heart and we think it’s an ideal location to call home for people of all ages. The local pubs, hotels and restaurants boast good food in cosy, comfortable environments, and with the Green Dragon Eco Farm, Stowe Landscape Gardens and Claydon House all situated nearby, family activities and days out won’t be much of a stretch. For us, Winslow embodies the ultimate equilibrium: there’s enough going on to be interesting, but it’s still a beautiful, peaceful place to live.
