Live to the West of Swindon in a village - its close enough to get in. As we moved from quite a rural location before we didn't want to move into town itself. Wootton Bassett is quite nice too - just off the M4 motorway.
Depends on what your budget is and where you would be working etc - can't say that we like Swindon central but there's plenty going on around the place.
It's a house exchange as I would like a fresh start I've also been offered Chippenham and Trowbridge but not sure which Area is better any info on these would be great as I have children and I want to know I've made the right choice in areas.
