DH interested in a house in Wollaton village Nottingham (May Avenue)? House is friend of a friend and not on rightmove so we have some snaps by email..seems quite good value compared with London prices - he is going up to recce it as we are thinking of moving to make his work commute a bit easier (he travels lots).Is this a suburb? Or a village? I would love to be in a nice community with a ggood little vvillagey school.. when I phoned Fernwood though they said I couldn't come and look round unless we had already applied which put me off a bit!! Also someone mentioned West Bridgford as a much better area for families, but obviously less good for M1..

DH works in Nottingham. Wollaton is a suburb of Nottingham not a village as such.
If you look online map you will see what I mean.

West Bridgford is a nice suburb that is merges into Nottingham but it can be v congested. Wollaton is a suburb too but the village is a conservation area and still feels villagey - parts are studenty as the uni is only just across the park. I don't know May Avenue though.

Fernwood is the very good primary, if you can get in.

My friend works at Fernwood Infants - very popular school and she is a fab teacher. Wollaton is a very spread out suburb, some good parts some shitty parts... but has a massive park and big stately home at its centre. Which is nice.

It is quite a sought after location I suppose. Not as sought after as West Bridgford though - tis full of yummy mummys there!! grin Great schools too.

If you want villagey, you'd be better off looking at some of the more rural areas, heading out to south Notts.
