Hi there, I've posted on a couple of threads here already (primary schools in Horsham and getting a school place mid year) and would like to ask whether anyone has advice on good areas to live in and around Horsham. I have one daughter (aged 8) and we will be moving back to the UK around April/May 2013. We live in Delft in The Netherlands, which is like a mini Amsterdam -a beautiful town, easy to get around (cycling and walking), but not a huge amount for kids to do outdoors (although lots of afterschool and weekend kid's activities/sports). What we are looking for is a good local community feel, somewhere we can walk or cycle to most places, but preferably not in the town centre or too rural (but want access to good parks, countryside etc). I know that is probably a lot to ask for! Any thoughts or suggestions would be great. Thanks a lot.
Yes, it's lovely. We moved from London 6 months ago and couldn't be happier. The town centre is lovely, people are friendly, the big park is beautiful and there's some brilliant cycling nearby. We're not too far from the South Downs bridleway, which was a train line but is now a path for horseriding, cycling and walking. It goes all the way from Guildford down to the coast. Let me know if you have anymore questions.
