There is lots to do in the area


He praised the "sense of community" and commended the range of "smashing pubs and great restaurants".

Tony went on the say there was a "sense of freedom" he had struggled to find in London.

The quiet area has a small town feel but London can be accessed in 1 hour 30 minutes.

Thame is a peaceful town with lots of greenery, a river walk and lots of cosy pubs and restaurants.

It is home to the Phoenix Trail, a biking and walking trail popular with residents and visitors.

Those who had visited the area had praised it on Tripadvisor.

One wrote: "Early morning is best as there are fewer people walking. The other advantage of this is I see such a variety of wildlife birds, rabbits, foxes and deer."

Another added it is a "fabulous" route that is "well worth a visit".


His property is in Oxfordshire


Houses in Thame sell for an average of £511,994, according to Rightmove.

Pop star Simon Le Bon has also settled down in a quiet UK suburb.

He lives in a peaceful UK borough where average house prices are £900,000.

Pink Floyd's David Gilmour owns a multi-million pound mansion in a British seaside town.
