After a bit of advice from someone more local. We're moving to Guildford and are in the process of house hunting and have found 2 possible houses- however not being from the area we are a bit lost re whether they are in okay areas and would greatly appreciate some insider knowledge!
We've found that although north Guildford is not as nice as some of Merrow etc we can afford more there unfortunately. Re schools we have a 1 month dd and 18 month ds so are likely to try for st Joseph's as we're catholic or if can afford it when the time arrives possibly go to the private sector. We will likely be moving house by time secondary schools are needed as this is likely to be a 5yr house. We are unsure whether with st Joseph's it just matter whether you are catholic or also how close to the school you are?
One house is 4 bed semi in harts gardens close to northmead primary/stoughton infant and the other a detached 3 bed on shepherds lane which I gather is in the rydes hill area which estate agents seem to talk about. Obviously the 4 bed semi is bigger downstairs & up which is a plus but the downside it is not detached plus a smaller garder so want to know if one is in a better area than the other or in an area we should avoid to help us with our decision.
