I would move. It might be more cramped downstairs, but the kids will be outside more, so it will balance out, and the quality of your lives will be improved.

I think I would move, going on what you have said. It sounds as if you would all be happier even though the house is smaller. Less housework for you too! smile

Well, the promise of always being able to stay in an area you hate isn't all that!

I have never lived in assured tenancy, always private, and it would be very unusual for your landlord to end the tenancy. For your peace of mind perhaps ask the landlord what their plans for the property are, if they are likely to sell? To be honest, if you are good tenants, then it is extremely unlikely you would have to move, landlords love good, reliable tenants.

Be brave!

I would move, and as a landlady myself, I love the idea of someone wanting a long lease.

Move. If you do it quick you'll be in time to enjoy this hot summer that we've been promised grin

And don't worry about security - you sound like you'd be great tenants and am sure landlord would be v pleased to keep on a good tenancy.

It's all about QUALITY of life...

I would be packing the boxes already! I'd definitely move to a smaller house in a nicer area. If only I could afford to sad

Move. I would be out of there and into that lovely gardened village house like a shot.

Size isn't everything wink Your surroundings are so important. We moved from a bigger house to the one we're in now which is pretty tiny, because the former was in completely the wrong place - wrong feel, wrong location, bad attitude, just wrong. The house itself was quite nice but by the end of our stay there we pretty much hated it because we were so unhappy.

Move! You can waste a life being safe.

Definately move. Quality of life is everything and walking your kids to school will benefit everyone.

Definitely move. As someone else said, landlords are always keen to have good long-term tenants. and if you do end up having to move again for some reason, you can find another rural house to rent I'm sure. Go for it - it will be so much better for the children to have a garden and not be surrounded by BNP types. I hope you go and hope you really, really enjoy living in the country x
