It seems a lot need to run down the UK to justify that their new life in Aus is really wonderful. I wonder how many of these people actually really like their new lives in Aus
Totally agree with you Jules.

I can't deny that Flea, it certainly is.

I fancy a change from Essex though which is why we are looking at the other home counties. If OH's brother comes to OZ then we won't have any close family in Essex anyway so no reason to return there and all my family live in London.

We are free agents really, quite liberating in a way. A bit like when we came to Oz. Then everyone followed us!!

Yeah, i know what you mean, but Essex is new to me as i dont come from there originally, i only went there for the first time when my daughter moved there 2yrs ago and fell in love with it.
We probably wont be living there long term either, as OH has got several job prospects and the best ones are in Sussex, but i do love northern Essex villages, this link below shows one of my faves..

Well, if the job pulls off, one of the villages within a few miles of Wadhurst

Know Maldon quite well. Used to stay on a moored barge on the Blackwater on school trips many moons ago. Have a friend who lives there too, lovely place.

Sussex is nice too though, good luck with the jobs!

Have you ever thought of seaside locations such as Eastbourne or Hastings because I`ve heard property prices in these places, are very good compared to the inland locations? Also I imagine they are within easy commuting distance to Wadhurst.

Yeah, we wouldnt mind those places, but need to be further inland as we dont want to be too far in travelling distance to my daughter in Essex. My little grandaughter is disabled and we want to be able to help out and see them quite often. No more than 30mins from M25 is where we need to be

Ah ok and the reason that I mentioned them and especially in the case of Hastings, is that I was shocked at what you can get there for your money in relation to other parts of Sussex.

Probably Guildford or Farnham, or one of the larger villages. Maybe even just over Hampshire border. Depends on jobs and schools really. Still researching the good schools, quite a few to choose from luckily.

Maybe I need to look at Sussex too! I'm all for getting more for my money.

When he goes for his interview, we intend to have a good look around the area for a couple of days and stay in a holiday caravan near Hastings so i will report on how i find it.

Have you been looking at moving there then?
