That’s according to new analysis from Property Detective who crunched the numbers to reveal the country’s most family friendly postcodes.

The analysis, which has been shared exclusively with the JPIMedia Data Unit, looked at various factors ranging from access to schools to maternity units to determine the best places for couples to start a family and raise children around England.

Commenting on the South East findings, a spokesperson for Property Detective said: ‘According to the Property Detective model, the best postcodes districts in South East to start and raise a family are MK17 (Milton Keynes), ME20 (Maidstone), RG10 (Windsor and Maidenhead), SL4 (Bracknell Forest) and ME19 (Tonbridge and Malling).

‘These specific areas scored very highly based on top rated nurseries as well as primary and secondary education, with very good availability of local amenities.’

The report took into account the availability, quality and proximity of a wide range of amenities and services within every postcode district, including: schools, nurseries, parks and playgrounds, maternity units, NCT groups, chemists and shops.
