Hi everyone,

My husband and I are currently house hunting in the Guildford area. We are first time buyers.

Does anyone know what the area immediately to the south of Slyfield Industrial Estate is like? We have been to look at a few houses on Whitemore Road and Woodlands Road. Does anyone know what these roads are like?

They seem fairly nice to us, but we don't know the area very well and are worried about how close they are to Bellfields. Would they be classed as Bellfields? We are looking for a nice quite, family area.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Okay, first you are very close to the sewage works, and the smell at times. Secondly you will be in the same area as Bellfields, especially for schools. The A3 is a big dividing line in Guildford. Admittedly, most schools etc in Guildford are pretty good.

What is your budget and what are you looking for? Do you have any kids and what ages are they?

I know people who both live and work there. Personally, I wouldn't want to live there.
The local school, Weyfield, is improving under the new head but that doesn't change the people you'd be living next door to and children socialising with - if that's an issue?! Some of them are lovely, kind, intelligent, hardworking, house proud people but lots aren't IMHO. But maybe I'm just being a snob!
