Moving from London to Cheshire

Hi everyone, I wonder if anyone could advise me on good/bad areas to move to in Cheshire.

My budget would be around £230k. My older son is currently working at Heathrow and will hopefully get a transfer to Manchester Airport, youngest is currently in his 3rd year apprenticeship, I've contacted South Cheshire College and he can transfer his apprenticeship and finish it in Cheshire, they'll find his employer too.

The reason for my house being on the market is simply as a single mum of two with a massive mortgage, it's no longer financially viable for us to stay.

We've lived all our lives in the South in a busy area, lots of people etc. and are looking forward to starting a new life up North, we came up last year and saw a few properties in Winsford. Alot of mixed reviews on Winsford, but seemed very quiet from what we are used to. Not that, that is a deal breaker, as long as Manchester Airport is about 30/40 mins by train.

We don't want to be near any schools, our house currently backs o to a school playground, and its very noisy, would like to be near amenities, but ultimately we'd like to be in a good and safe area. Is there anywhere which is multicultural for instance?

Areas I've thought of, just looking on Rightmove, are Winsford, Middlewich, Sandbach, Leighton, Crewe etc. On my budget, seen some lovely detached houses. But I know nothing of what it's really like.

Apologies for such a long message too, but I would be so grateful for any i formation that would help me.

Cheshire dweller here. Avoid Crewe and winsford and Leighton as they are all quite rough. Middlewich and Sandbach much better.
