South Ascot is a village just south of and down the hill from the small town of Ascot in the English county of Berkshire. It is bounded on the west by the Kingsride area of Swinley Woods, on the north by the Reading to Waterloo railway line and merges with Sunninghill to the east.
Housing and amenities
Housing here is more modest, but generally pleasant with plenty of open space and woodland. Most houses are Victorian villas or semi-detached, although more recent development is also in evidence. House prices tend to be slightly more affordable than its northern counterpart, although these are still well above national average and ideal for commuting into London or Reading.
