I am looking into doing a HA house swap at some point but i don't know what areas to look at. I would love somewhere fairly close to a beach. Has to be near good primary and secondry schools. Close to doctors. Train station would be good too!
I don't really have a specific idea of where but Devon, somerset, Dorset etc would be fine. Currently in a small town in Somerset. Have 3 bedrooms need 4+! Large garden essential! TIA
The beaches are what are causing me trouble TBH. I'm in Somerset and there are some interesting beaches but no nice sandy ones. Sidmouth/Seaton area has some lovely coast. N Devon is lovely but remote.
North Devon is beautiful, with gorgeous sandy beaches such as Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe (lived there most of my life) but as Ormirian says is remote, and almost no industry/jobs which is why I have moved away.
Plus there are pockets of real poverty in some areas, and the 'nice' places are horrendously expensive.
