Average House Price

It comes as no surprise that property prices in Carshalton are on the up, with the average cost of buying a property coming in at just under half a million pounds. Local estate agentshave revealed that the average cost of a house in the area has risen by more than two hundred thousand pounds during the past decade. In other words, if you’d bought an average property in 2005 for 300,000 you would have doubled your money ten years later.

The UK's 5th largest town, Edenbridge, is predominantly a commuter town due to its proximity to Central London with a smooth transport link to Tunbridge Wells, This Is Hampshire (thisishampshire.co.uk). Whist the average property price in Edenbridge halves from that of Tunbridge Wells, terraced houses are still in reach at a little over half the cost of those in Tunbridge Wells. The market has changed. The days of ‘flat prices’ are gone. Nowadays, we don’t have one price for an average house, but some houses are much more expensive than others.

There are really big differences in prices between terraced houses and detached properties, and so we should expect to see the average house price reflect this. The average house price in Stroud is54,298. This is down 6. 5% over the last 3 months, but up +10% over the lastyear. The numberof properties available to property buyers looking in Stroud for a property to buy has increased +26% over the past year, and there are currently 13 properties in the region for sale.

Best Kept Secret

Wickham Festival. You've probably heard of it, you might even know what it's about, but you probably don't know what it means to our village (other than a nice day out for all the family). Well, WF is about making sure that this legendary event (started in 1993) remains affordable, accessible and enjoyable for everyone in our community. That means we need a whole bunch of volunteers year on year to make sure the event is delivered safely and professionally during that weekend each July.

From running bars or making tea and coffee, to stewarding or delivering decent weather forecasts when they are needed, Wickham Festival relies entirely on the power of human goodwill for its success. Superfans aren't just volunteers; we're helping. The Wickham Festival is held in a 300-acre valley, and the festival site has its own on-site farm shop, restaurant and bar. It’s quite simply the best of British countryside meets camping festival, with a multi-stage music arena dedicated to homegrown and international artists – and expertly curated line-ups as per usual.

Set in the beautiful Kent countryside, Wickham Festival appeals to those that want to spend a summer weekend listening to live music, with the option to camp or stay in nearby hotels. The festival has won more than 20 awards since it began 18 years ago and holds an ‘outstanding’ rating by Festivals for All. Wickham Festivalis the bestkept secret in Sussex. It's been aroundfor over 25 years,hasn't been rammed by corporate sponsorship and still puts its principles ahead of profit.


There are many commuter train services on to London Waterloo fromPetersfield which may explain why house prices here are priced more reasonably than nearbyStoke Poges, which has a station of the same name with just one service in each direction! The town is also conveniently close to Portsmouth and Southampton both under 25 minutes by train fromPetersfield. The Journey Planner website has a tool that provides you with an overview of your commute.

To get to Portsmouth, you drive round the M27 and onto the A30(E), and catch the M275 (A3) across the harbor. This will take you into central Portsmouth, which is brilliant for those heading into town. Commute times and prices are provided by thisishampshire.co.uk and are based on the M3 corridor to London. The South West Commuter route is significantly longer than Portsmouth/Winchester, and will take well over two hours, so commuter status doesn't apply here.


MY FOOD GETS ME EVERYWHERE! I'm lucky to have come across friends who are next level foodies, and the mother of one them is an amazing home chef. Regardless what I'm eating I always manage to get my "blogger voice" going. First time she made me banana cake I nearly lost my mind and as a banana cake fiend (ask any friend of mine) I haven't come across anything better since. What can make banana cake even more delicious? Her coffee, she really is a magician when it comes to coffee.

It tastes like its handcrafted by angels in heaven, and strong AF lol. If youre anything like me, youre weakness is cake. Im telling you this because if I was sitting at a table surrounded by cake, I couldnt stop myself from eating it…and probably a bit more than I should have. But that’s where the 5p swap came to my aid because I did the same with desserts, instead of eating them all day long, I ate fruit for breakfast.
