The Upper Walthamstow area is a great place to live in London due to its unique blend of both rural and urban. The neighbourhood is located on the edge of Epping Forest so you literally have nature at your doorstep anytime you feel you want to take a break from the stress of everyday life. The nearby forest provides plenty of areas for recreation, walks, picnics as well as stunning greenery and wildlife. It’s perfect for families with children and those with pets. On the other hand, you never have to worry about losing your connection to the urban side of London because you will be there in less than 20 minutes. Whether you’re working from home or returning to work in the City, you’ll have easy access to all central parts of London. You can lead a rural countryside life without leaving the city! It’s easy to see why many people are keen to relocate to this area which has been named as one of the best places to live in London.
Epping Forest – Nature’s gem, right on your doorstep
In this quiet, tree-lined road of Upper Walthamstow area, you are right on the doorstep of the peaceful and romantic woodlands of Epping Forest. These sprawling 6000 acres of beautiful greenery are perfect for morning jogs, afternoon picnics and evening strolls.
Epping Forest is the largest public open space in London. The Forest is approximately 19 kilometres long. A stunning ancient woodland and former royal hunting forest stretching over 12 miles from East London to North of Epping in Essex. The area that became known as Waltham and then as Epping Forest has been continuously forested since Neolithic times. Embankments of two Iron Age earthworks can be found in the woodlands.
Opportunities for sports, hiking, leisure and sightseeing
The Epping Forest district offers a rich mix of heritage, surrounded by ancient forests and glorious English picturesque countryside. If you are a keen cyclist, runner or walker you’ll appreciate many cycle routes and paths through 9 nature reserves, over 100 lakes and ponds, open farmlands, river valleys and idyllic cottages. The wild blue and green space of Hollow pond and Eagle pond is just half a mile away on foot from the property so you visit any time you want to escape the city life.
Epping Forest is also a great place for fishing. Although there are over 100 lakes and ponds, spread over the forest, you can fish in only 25 of them. You could also enjoy delightful walks to Walthamstow Wetlands and River Lea. Walthamstow Wetlands is one of the largest urban wetland nature reserves in Europe and is particularly important for wildlife due to its position within the Lea valley, a byway for migrating, wintering and breeding birds.
As well as being a popular area for recreation and enjoyment, Epping Forest is also of national and international conservation importance for wildlife. The reserve is currently home to over 800 Fallow and Reeves’s Muntjac deers, as well as many species of wildflowers and birds.
