Woodford Green — Stow Brothers

In case you hadn’t already picked up on the clues in the name, Woodford Green is a charming sanctuary of leafy loveliness within a short hop of Central London. Yes, you read that right – duck ponds, cricket greens and quaint pubs… all just 30-ish minutes from Oxford Circus. No wonder savvy families have been making the area home for a while now – the area’s excellent schools are just the icing on the cake.

Thanks to its close proximity to Epping Forest, visitors head to Woodford Green for scenic walks, and then refuel at one of the area’s cosy traditional pubs such as the Travellers Friend or The Cricketers. There’s also a lively food scene, but just low key enough to ensure the neighbourhood has a close-knit, villagey vibe.

A word from our Woodford Green area expert…

“Woodford Green, as its name suggests, has ample open spaces, including village greens, parks and forest land.

The area has a number of popular pubs and eateries. For Italian, the superb Bel Sit is known for its authentic family feel and collection of football shirts. Rosso on the Broadway and Mezze on the Green are also really popular. 

Along the High Road are a number of historic ‘watering holes’ including the Cricketers, Travellers Friend, Rose & Crown and Horse & Well. For local shopping, Woodford Broadway is a good choice, including a lovely new fishmonger called Fatfish.

There are plenty of bigger family homes here, including the beautiful Arts and Crafts houses on the Monkhams Estate. Nearby is the charming inter-war Laings Estate with its green verges and pocket parks. For younger couples and families, there are smaller terraced houses and conversions to be snapped up.

Woodford Green is an ideal location for people looking for a mixture of town and country life, and a great place to put down family roots.”
