I have now narrowed down the three places that we are looking at renting in in Surrey but I need to make a decision as we will start looking very soon for an actual house.

I have a two year old and a 9 month old so want somewhere with good primary schools, good facilities for families, playgroups and wouldn't mind some sort of leisure centre nearby so I can get the odd bit of exercise!

Please tell me where to live??!!

south farnham primary is one of the best primaries in the country so on top of there wd be a priority for me. godalming is lovely and also is neare to guildford for everything. will look up website. i used to teach in guildford secondary level and the pupils coming form s.farnham were out in front.

I will come back to this, I am just about to have supper. It could be tomorrow.

South Farnham is good, but they push the children quite hard.

You can CAT me if you wish and I will happily ring you and answer any questions you may have.

I grew up in Haslemere and it used to have 2 primary schools, both of which were good. It also has a (relatively) new leisure centre but as it's really a commuter town (and has quite a high elderly population) it's not what I would call that family friendly. Most young families can only afford to live in nearby places like Bordon which are consequently very family friendly.
