Currently living in Oxfordshire but hoping to move away in the next few years, preferably near the coast. As dh and I are both teachers we can go pretty much anywhere, but are looking for somewhere with houses a bit cheaper than here and with good (state) schools for dc. Had been thinking of North Devon, which I think is beautiful, but good secondary schools seem a bit thin on the ground. Can any kind MNers recommend any other lovely mid/south areas near the sea which might fit the bill?
We have a very good secondary school here in Dorchester. Thomas Hardye has an excellent reputation though it is a very large school. Budmouth College in Weymouth is also very good and houses are cheaper than Dorchester. We are about 15 mins from the coast.
