My boyfriend and I are looking to move to the Newark area and I wondered if anyone on here had recently done a move from London to Newark?
We’ve picked Newark as I’m originally from near Grimsby and have a few close friends who live in Lincoln. I work from home but my boyfriend will need to be commuting into London one or two days a week.
I’m looking for pointers on areas of Newark to look at or avoid, and any surrounding villages. We’d like somewhere that has a bit of a community and at least a pub that is of a sensible distance to Newark Northgate!
I haven’t lived in that area myself but have often visited my brother who lived in Collingham (near Newark) for 32 years – a beautiful village that originally had three pubs, although I think you’d need to check the status of that as I know some of them folded. My brother has since moved to Southwell which is a town with lots of facilities. I believe Winthorpe is meant to be a nice village too. Good luck, hope you get some more informed responses. Newark is nice I think, the only downside I’ve heard is that I’ve heard there are issues involving the large traveller community which has a site at the edge of town.
