Hi thankyou for all the kind responses. I have a budget of 150k. Im looking for a house 2-3 bedrooms, thats close-ish to M1. Also good schools would be a bonus. My partner works in Leeds, so need something convenient for both of us x
Newark might be worth looking at- the train appears to run direct to Leeds in about an hour. Retford is another place worth a look, Ollerton. Like all places, it has it’s good and not so good areas- get a good estate agent!
