Hi everyone

I hope that some of you will be able to offer me some good advice. My wife and I are looking to move to Milton Keynes soon and I wanted to get some opinions on the best parts to live in. We're looking to start a family so school catchment is important to us. Of course local amenities would be a bonus.

I've looked around on forums for best area to live in but can't find anything post 2014. We recently viewed a few houses, one was in Oxley Park and while the area looked nice I noticed loads of for sale and to let signs around. We decided to have a chat with a local who told us the area used to be nice but now there's lots of housing association being moved into that area and so people are starting to move out. I don't mean for that to sound mean/snobby but she told us that because of that the area has started to go down hill.

Area's that I've been looking at are, Two Mile Ash, Great Holm, Westcroft, The Shenley's, Stony Stratford, Medbourne, Middleton, Willen, Giffard Park, Newport Pagnell.

Are we on the right track? Are there others that you would suggest considering?

Thanks for any advice you can offer. smile

I lived on Kent's Hill, when it was new and worked at Westcroft when also new. I personally would avoid any areas around the city and the hospital. Stony was always lovely, I got married in Middleton (that was the start for Milton Keynes I believe. I would avoid Bletchley and Newport Pagnell but my advice is probable terribly out of date. The others you mentioned were always nice when I lived there.

Thanks for your reply wink
Did you have a bad experience with Newport Pagnell? You're the first person that I've seen say anything bad about it.

No, I just think there are nicer places that you've mentioned.
