Take a look at Knaresborough. It’s in between Harrogate and York, it’s a small market town with great schools. Close to Leeds for great shops aswell.

Re: Confused emotions

it is a very difficult decision and so much harder than deciding to go to NZ. What we did others wouldn’t but you do what you feel is right. It certainly was very hard leaving her.
