One of the many great things about living in Berkshire is that in just minutes you can get out of the urban town centres and into the peaceful surroundings of the countryside.
Ten minutes on a good day perhaps, but nonetheless there are plenty of options for living.
It’s a similar tale in Maidenhead, where you can find yourself in places like Cookham – home of none other than TV legend Timmy Mallett.
Or Hurley, a delightful and largely undiscovered village by the Thames, in no time at all.
Even in Slough, often seen as something of an urban sprawl, you’re only a stone’s throw from the Grand Union Canal and villages like Datchet and Eton.
We’ve pulled together some of the best photos showcasing what’s on offer in Berkshire’s villages, which can be found below.
