Mid twenties, not many responsibilities, i'm currently sick of living in the area I grew up and being the family lackey.
I really fancy a fresh start, a change of scenery, a chance to be myself and somewhere I can spread my wings.
I'm still not sure what I 'want to do'. Currently i'm just applying for any old job that will cover my rent and run my car so I can do that anywhere really.
Where shall I go? I'm not sure what i'm after except somewhere where the people are down-to-earth, a place where I can afford a room with windows, somewhere that I can be anonymous and somewhere with other young people. I'm currently in Cambridgeshire and looking to move a minimum of two to three hours away.
Go North, Cambridgeshire is flat and dull IMO, south of there is too expensive. I live on the south coast after growing up in Cambridgeshire, left when I was 19 and hate going back. I'd love to live in Yorkshire, Cumbria or Northumberland. Can't be more specific, I'm older and would move somewhere quiet and rural but move north is my best advice.
How about Manchester? It's a hub for jobs in the north, cheaper rent than the south, major airport nearby. You've also got the choice of city, suburbs and countryside to commute from. Great transport links for seeing family too. Plus it's a big university city so geared up for young people.
Yorkshire. Leeds is fab and the economy is pretty strong so jobs should be ok and rent is reasonable. Lots of house shares or small flats and as it's a city with a load of students it has a great young vibe and a lot going on. Plus easy access to the country and not too far from the coast if you have a car.
West Country is expensive! I love Bristol but I don't think it's very cheap to live. Anything further West is a bit 'country' and not realistically, very good for work opportunities.
I moved to Brighton for university and despite many twists and turns along the way, I've not strayed too far from Brighton. I would love to go up North and definitely would if it wasn't for my dc's school and dh's work. I'd move to the Lake District or Yorkshire Dales.....maybe the Peak District.
