When looking for a new home, deciding on the location can be tricky. Whether to go with the thrill of the city, the charm of the countryside or the tranquility of the water, it’s often a hard choice to make. Now, thanks to Crest Nicholson, you don’t have to!

Highlands Park is located in Henley-on-Thames; considered one of the most beautiful market towns in England. It still holds many historical buildings such as St Mary’s Church and the Town Hall and also the market square which gives the town a charismatic pull. They are fantastic assets for those who love to learn about their hometown’s past, but these are not the only gems this town bears. For the explorers, the Thames Path National Trail runs through Henley leading out into the captivating countryside as well as the Chilterns Cycleway. For the socialisers, there are many local shops, pubs and even a theatre/cinema. Renowned for its annual Royal Regatta, Henley attracts some of the world’s finest rowers. For those of you who are water-babies, you can set out on your own boat trip down the Regatta course and even stop off at the award-winning River and Rowing Museum.

Despite the strong rural aesthetic, which may lead one to believe that Henley-on-Thames is a quiet town without much to offer, Henley is in fact a regular venue of many an event. The annual Henley Festival of Music and Arts takes place every July on the Berkshire bank of the River Thames. A popular hospitality venue, it accommodates some of the world’s most famous entertainers who perform on a floating stage at this black-tie event; whilst also holding art and sculpture exhibitions. Other events include the Henley Fringe Festival, Henley Literary Festival and the aforementioned Royal Regatta – meaning you get a combination of the excitement of city life with the scenic views of the countryside.

In conjunction with the town’s own offerings, Henley is a mere six miles from the A404 from which you can connect to the M4 and M40 in order to easily reach the larger surrounding towns and cities such as Reading and Oxford. There are exceptional public transport links within the town, which also has its own train station delivering regular trains to London Paddington.

Crest Nicholson values the individual needs of potential clients and aimed to create a setting that could offer suitable housing opportunities to people on all steps of the property ladder. Thus, they designed homes suited to couples, expanding families, second steppers and even those wanting to downsize on their property. Highlands Park has been considerately created with an array of 2-bedroom apartments and 3, 4 and 5-bedroom houses in the hopes of attracting a variety of homeowners in order to generate a balanced and sustainable community. It has been thoughtfully planned out to become a setting that provides shelter from the immediate commotion of urban living – whilst still enabling full accessibility to key services and resources such as pubs, schools and shops.

Our Fragile and Rickety Existence

In over 20 travel series, Simon Reeve has hunted with the Bushmen of the Kalahari, been chased by pirates, hounded by the Mafia and detained by the KGB. He’s been to over 120 countries, ranging across deserts, mountains, jungles and oceans. Enough to complete a bucket list (or two) and perhaps plenty to permit thinking he’s a guffawing, swashbuckling, Walter Raleigh type, but when I speak to him, he’s still reeling from his son’s eighth birthday party...
