Swindon is a large town in the county of Wiltshire, mid-way between Reading and Bristol and west of London on the M4. Swindon is a major station on the London-Bristol mainline with frequent direct train services to London Paddington. The Engine Works of the Great Western Railway closed long ago but many of the buildings have found a new life as home to a large Outlet Shopping Centre and museum complex.
Home to many household name employers including Intel, Npower, Arval UK, Zurich Assurance, Wincanton Logistics, Honda UK, WH Smiths, First Great Western, Dyson, Nationwide Building Society, and The National Trust, it has proved an excellent source of residential investment property.
Royal Wootton Basset is just 5.5 miles to the West of Swindon and readily accessible from the Town Centre.
In February 2008 The Times named Swindon as one of "The 20 best places to buy a property in Britain”, with the average household income in Swindon among the highest in the country. A 2007 report by Endsleigh Insurance says it was the second safest place to live in the UK (after Guildford). This was based on the number of insurance claims made and burglaries and accidents reported.
Property investors are drawn to the area by the combination of major blue chip employers and new build opportunities - with flats apartments and small houses all showing strong yields. Of course there is also a wealth of Victorian terraced stock.
