Saundersfoot - Does anyone live there?

19 replies

What is it like? What are the schools/health services like?

I love this area (Pembrokeshire, South Wales generally) and I think I have almost convinced DH moving there would be top banana

I'm afraid I've no idea but my DD is convinced that everyone living in Saundersfoot has a sore foot.

Have you got a sore foot?

saggyhairyarse · 28/04/2009 21:45

Actually I do! New shoes today!

I think you've just got to be prepared to travel further. Compared to living in a city.

Where are you now?

If you choose to live in Pembs, you need to be able to drive. Trains are stupidly non-existant, buses are better but still not fantastic.
Schools tend to be quite good, only thing is that there are limited activities for young people to really get involved in.

The schools service in Pembs is generally v good. Saudersfoot school has a good reputation. (I don't know it myself, but I work in a school in the North of the County)
The school is a Category C school which means Welsh is taught as a 2nd language.

Health service is OK, I believe Saundersfoot has its own Drs' Surgery. Nearest hospital is in Haverfordwest.

It is a lovely part of the world to live in, as long as you are not a shopping/partying kind of a girl!

Saudersfoot in the Winter can be quite dreary.

You would find it hard to live in Pembs if you can't drive (although people do manage)
Bus services are v limited.

Mallow- not town beginning with F is it?

mallow · 28/04/2009 22:15

Could be... any reason why?

differentID · 28/04/2009 22:16

I grew up there

mallow · 28/04/2009 22:18

Sorry - I just realised I sounded very rude then. This isn't my usual ID as I am a bit paranoid about my identity. Yes it probably is the town you grew up in!

differentID · 28/04/2009 22:21

lol. I don't think any of the staff there are still from when I went there

mallow · 28/04/2009 22:23

I've just realised I'm coming across as ultra paranoid.
Here I am on an annonymous forum, changing my ID so no one knows were I'm from and I still worry ...
When did you leave school? (Unless you'd rather not say )

differentID · 28/04/2009 22:25

I was born 1979- dossed around for one year of 6th form and re-took it so 1998, just before my 19th.

mallow · 28/04/2009 22:27

Ah, before my time
(Was worried I was going to feel ancient and had actually taught you!)

MMOC, I live in Bristol. I don't mind driving about as I do that now. I've lived in different areas of the city and now live in a town on the outskirts but grew up in a different town on the outskirts so travel to see different people and activities.

Different ID and Mallow, I do drive. My daughter does Taekwondo, any chance i'd find a reasonably local class? Otherwise I am not bothered about shopping/partying, I like good coffee shops and going out for meals.

Sorry to resurrect from old!

I would imagine you would find Taekwondo (or similar) classes in Tenby which isn't too far.

saggyhairyarse · 17/05/2009 09:01

I sort of figured I would be going to Tenby a fair bit for stuff so that is no problem!

Only other thing is from looking at ESTYN site, would the local secondary school be in Tenby? Is there a school bus? ONly hoping kids would be getting themselves to school by then so I can get a job!

OP posts:
mallow · 17/05/2009 16:50

The local secondary would be Greenhill in Tenby and there are school buses.

saggyhairyarse · 17/05/2009 22:14

Cheers!
