    Hi Jo

    We moved up to Saffron Walden in January from Chiswick.

    First thing to say is it’s a smashing area with a nice mixture of locals and ex Londoners, mostly very good schools and lovely countryside.

    We ended up on the edge of Saffron Walden itself because we wanted to be close to the high school and also to be able to walk in to town. The villages around are lovely eg Great Chesterford, Littlebury, Newport but not many houses tend to come up (although lots of new builds going up in various places). I don’t commute but it’s about an hour into Liv St from Audley End or you can jump on the tube at Tottenham Hale. Audley End is a couple of miles outside town so you have to drive/cycle and park there. I think there’s plenty of parking but it costs a few hundred quid for an annual pass. If you want to walk to the station you need to be in Wendens Ambo or Great Chesterford or Newport.

    We’re still new to the area so don’t know everything but happy to help!

    Hi Cindy

    Just researching places to live in Herts and saw your posts. You could have been describing our situation now! We live in W London with three young kids and really like it, but feel that we need to move out a bit to get a bigger place while making a big dent in the mortgage, better school options and also to be a bit nearer parents in Norfolk and Derbyshire. I work near King’s Cross so somewhere like Hitchin sounds good on paper.

    Just wondering how you got on with your move, or if anyone else has advice on that part of the world?

    Thanks
    Eddie
