All things considered, I'd still consider it a very positive move. #helpmeiamtrapped
Must say I really enjoyed my time there. Glad we're still only 5 mins down the road.
Me, my husband and our 4 years boy moved in Stafford in august 2015. For now we live in a rented flat in the city center, but in the spring we want to rent a house. I do not know the town so can you tell me where are the best neighborhoods, area? We want to stay in town because I do not drive ... so we want to be close to supermarket and school. Thanks.
castlefields and the new castle view estate (near doxey, but don't let that put you off) are excellent, imo.. they are modern houses, 10 minutes walk to town, but quiet and private enough that you feel like you're living out of town..
houses seem to pop up on castlefields quite often, so have a look on rightmove for that area
The new Aldi opening to the south of the town soon might expand the areas worth looking at.
There aren't any really bad area's in Stafford, some are nicer than others, but a quick drive around will give you a pretty good idea if you like an area or not!
Doxey may have somewhere within your budget if you don't mind mixing with the celebs in the corner shop
Thank you all for the help. I like castlefields. Even if the south area is too far from all the facilities, here are the best schools, so we are in a dilemma...
I used to have a Dilemma but I traded it in for an old Mercedes-Benz
I'll get me coat. ..
Wildwood is a good area too, it has a supermarket, lovely park, a decent pub.
A library is near by, chemist, primary schools.
Its not far from Cannock Chase which is a beautiful place to visit.
its a few miles from the town centre so its a bit of a walk but there are plenty of buses that go into town.
Welcome to the forum (and to Stafford). @Adriana
By the way, feel free to ignore the very bonkers @John Marwood .....most people do!
hello and welcome, i will second Wildwood, Baswich is also a nice area. Wildwood and Baswich has the best schools in the area, that's why me and my wife are currently moving from st16 to the wildwood area.
You are very brave posting that.
When I said the same thing a little while back I didn't half get a right rollicking.
ofsted reports speak for themselves, the area is really nice also.
I agree, but I take it that you didnt read that particular thread then?
Oh god yeah, given the choice Wildwood, Walton, Baswich, etc. are your best areas when it comes to schools & families, but I suggested Castlefields based on your request to be in town / close to the station.
If your primary criteria is schools, seriously look at ST17
Don't judge a book by its cover
I see what you mean....that house is like a tardis ... how they fit the rooms in....it looks tiny from the outside.
As the actress said to the Bishop?
Nearest stations Stafford and NORTON BRIDGE? Technically correct I suppose but ...
