A friend of mine will be relocating with her dh and dd (2 years) to Sheffield from se london (kent) in January. He will be working at the university.

She is completely clueless about where nice places to live are! They are due to go looking around in the next few weekends. Any advice about family friendly areas, as green as possible, with good schools and mums networks and lovely houses?

Any advice would be hugely appreciated, because she's finding the idea of the move rather daunting, understandably.

Thanks in advance

Somewhere to live: Most University people will live in S10 or S11 - mostly upmarket and leafy, but compared with Kent, cheap.

I like this house which is round the corner from me. From this search from this list of estate agents.

Sheffiel scene is a good website (Needs Flash on the browser fo snazziest effects) and there is always the Council site

Think Fulwood, Crosspool, Crookes, Nether Green. Good schools, green, nice houses, lots of families, loads of mums and toddler groups.

For the univerity I would also recommend S10 and S11. The big estate agents in Sheffield are Blundells, Saxton Mee and ELR, although the previous link to the list of loval estate agents is very comprehensive.

Thanks all and thanks for the link purpleturtle. Will print off the thread and pass it on.

Haybrooks would also argue that they are 'big' in Sheffield. (Trust me, they valued my house on Monday!)
