Myself, my partner and our 2 year old are looking to relocate back to the Midlands. Northampton looks like a good bet as my partner can work there and it's between London and where we are originally from. I don't know where to start the search. We are looking to rent but want to try and save some money so don't want to pay a fortune. We also need an area with good primary schools. Please could someone give me some advice on nice areas with decent schools? Thanks x

Me and the OH are doing the same thing! We've spent quite a while checking out areas, and decided on Raunds / Stanwick / Higham Ferrers areas. They seem the nicest we have seen - we lived in Berkhamsted, Herts which is v posh but couldn't afford to buy there.
Worth a look around that area for affordability within decent area.

Stay away from the eastern district, houses are cheap in rent but the area itself is not the best.

If you're going to live in the town then the Abington, Westone, Weston Favell areas are good for primary schools. Plus the nearer you are to the exceptional Abington Park the better!
