Local information

Northwood is a sought-after suburb, on the edge of the Green Belt, in the London Borough of Hillingdon, just 10 miles (16km) north west of central London with many locations offering views over open countryside. It is the home to Northwood Headquarters, which is the location of the British Armed Forces Permanent Joint Headquarters (PJHQ) for planning and controlling overseas military operations.

The name Northwood historically refers to the fact that the town is located in the 'north wood' of the area known as Ruislip. A portion of Northwood has been put under a place of special interest restriction, as the area, including the old High Street, Chester Road and Hallowell Road has many Victorian houses and the roads form a triangular shape.

The suburb is characterised by numerous small restaurants and cafes, public houses, and a handful of boutique-style clothing stores. The area boasts golf, cricket and rugby clubs and a variety of places of worship. The area offers lovely walks through the grounds of Moor Park, Copse Wood, Park Woods and the Green Belt beyond.


The area of Northwood is highly favoured for its excellent schooling both private and state and includes St Johns, St Martins, St Helens, Merchant Taylors, Eastbury Farm Primary School, Northwood School, Hillside School and London School of Theology.

How to get here

By road: There are three motorways serving the local area - the M1, M25 and M40 are all within a 10-15 minute drive.

By rail: Northwood has a station on the Underground's Metropolitan Line giving easy access to central London.

    We would like to commend Chris Michaelides. He is very efficient and friendly and helpful. From day one his performance has been very impressive. It was a pleasure to work with him. A professionally run company.

    I can honestly say that you are a pleasure to deal with. You are always helpful in all our dealings. You are reliable in that you keep good contact with me and always return telephone calls, emails, etc. and always present a cheerful and positive approach when we talk. I have every confidence in you and your ability to act on my behalf and would like to thank you for your support, particularly over the last few weeks with a slightly awkward situation, and patience.

    Having spoken with several local agents prior to selling my property I opted to have it marketed by James at Anscombe & Ringland Northwood. From the outset I found the company to be extremely helpful. Any fears I had were quickly laid to rest and I found myself accepting an offer much faster than I expected! There were the inevitable ‘hiccups’ along the way but my mind was soon put to rest as James’ communication was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anscombe & Ringland Northwood. From start to finish James was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you.

    Having had our house on the market with another local agent for approximately ten months, with only one offer below the asking price, chain dependent and not moving forward at a pace that made us feel confident, we approached Anscombe and Ringland to be sole agent for the property. James immediately brought round an interested buyer who put in an offer for the full asking price. Thereafter, James was fully dedicated to completing the sale, offering excellent support to us as the seller, liaising regularly with us, even outside working hours when matters were urgent. He was a confident and clear negotiator on our behalf and also showed an understanding of our circumstances (particularly the emotional and practical upheaval of selling a family home of 30 years). Despite hurdles emerging along the way, James responded quickly and effectively and managed to keep the sale on track, which took two to three months in total. We are delighted to have worked with Anscombe and Ringland and would do so again in the future on the basis of this experience.

  • M Dixon

    I would just like to take this opportunity to provide you with some feedback on the sale of my flat that was handled by James Townsend. From the beginning of the process to the final completion, I found Mr Townsend to be a thoroughly professional, competent, calm and very pragmatic individual. Issues inevitably crop up along the way of any sale of this nature but it is how you deal with them that matters and I found Mr Townsend had a very common sense approach that was realistic, balanced and fair. As far as the actual sale and Mr Townsend were concerned, I found him to be a very helpful and dedicated person who would even deal with calls on weekends and during periods of his annual leave. An excellent member of your team who thoroughly deserves this recognition and credit.
