Hi everyone saw an earlier thread that went amazingly well for a hiusebuyer with suggestions for areas. So here's my cheeky attempt at it...
Living in Cardiff, planning to have kids, don't want to be more then 30 mins from city centre, need a good sized garden the bigger the better, and all for 300k max. All suggestions for areas and houses welcome.

Hi OP,
I think you'll get suitable responses if your thread title includes the city or town you're interested in.

FatBottomedGal Sat 17-Mar-18 16:23:07

Bricks I read it as somewhere within 30 mins of Cardiff!

CompleteAisling Sat 17-Mar-18 16:26:04

You'd probably get better responses if you weren't in aibu!

lostjanni Sat 17-Mar-18 16:27:57

Completeaisling where should it go?

CompleteAisling Sat 17-Mar-18 16:28:59

Property? Or even chat at a push. But since you aren't asking an aibu, not here.

lostjanni Sat 17-Mar-18 16:29:28

Ah how do I get it moved?

DianaBlythe Sat 17-Mar-18 16:29:53

30 minutes walk or 30 minutes drive from the city centre?

lostjanni Sat 17-Mar-18 16:31:37

Drive, but 30 mins walk would be a beauty 😂😂

You can post wherever you want op. There's no law against it.

lostjanni Sat 17-Mar-18 16:35:07

Biology matters thanks I think aisling was trying to get me more responses rather then being a thread area Nazi 😂😂😂

CompleteAisling Sat 17-Mar-18 16:38:24

exactly! when you post in the right area you get better and more useful answers. If you post in aibu you'll get idiots telliing you that yabvu to want a house or something stupid.

Go up the A470 some lovely houses in that price range and less around Abercynon, Cilfynydf, Pontypridd, Beddau, Quakers yard etc.... or Caerphilly area.... Abertridwr and Sengenydd etc...

lostjanni Sat 17-Mar-18 16:44:41

Yes aisling I see my mistake now doh! I have reported my post asking for it to be moved

Duckeggbluetin Sat 17-Mar-18 16:46:07

I suggest near me in Scotland.

lostjanni Sat 17-Mar-18 16:46:57

Duckeggbluetin, so sorry but Cardiff it is 😂😂

Pleasebeafleabite Sat 17-Mar-18 16:49:17

Oh OP your title made this sound more juicy than it actually is

Duckeggbluetin Sat 17-Mar-18 16:50:46

All suggestions, you said wink I have been to Cardiff and pretty sure you could commute from Scotland if you live near one of the airports. Anyway, YABU to not consider living near me.

lostjanni Sat 17-Mar-18 16:52:28

Pleasebeafleabite I'm so sorry for the disappointment 😂😂, duckeggbluetin all within 30 mins 😂 including waiting time, check in, security

Snowysky20009 Sat 17-Mar-18 16:53:23

No,don't go up the A470 way, stick to nicer areas of Cardiff.

Dancingfairydreams Sat 17-Mar-18 16:57:00

Fairwater is lovely. Lobekt sized gardens in the older ex council houses, extra bonus us the rooms are all of good size. Radyr is probably a bit nicer with that budget. But lots of building work going along llantrisant road. Thornhill & Llanishen are also worth looking at. Good luck

DawnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 17-Mar-18 16:57:29

Hi, we're moving this thread over to our Property topic at the OP's request.

lostjanni Sat 17-Mar-18 16:58:09

Dancingfairydreams thanks for all the suggestions. We heard llandough is nice as Well?

lostjanni Sat 17-Mar-18 16:58:36

Thanks dawnmumsnet, saved me from a big mistake 😂😂😂

DianaBlythe Sat 17-Mar-18 16:58:38

You can walk to town from here. Always something going on at Chapter and handy for Thompson park, Victoria Park and Llandaff fields. Garden is paved but you could put grass down.

Again garden is paved but could be unpaved.

Radyr more suburb-y.

Rhiwbina - a bit far to walk to town but easy drive.

Big garden and not far to the beach out of town in Llantwit major

South facing garden in Penarth - you can walk round the barrage to Cardiff Bay.

Whitchurch is lovely.
