Anyone fancy moving to Shropshire

    Recommended Posts

    We’ve stuck our house on the market a few weeks ago and casually been looking for places to move to and then disaster struck we’ve found the perfect place!!! So if anyone fancies buying a reasonably priced barn conversion I’ve got one to sell 😂

    London is commutable from Shrewsbury station abs there’s a direct train from Stafford which is about 45mins away from here. Nice quiet village on a no through road up to a forestry block. Deer! Not far away from some decent big shoots. And they’re resurrecting the local pub! 15 mins from Shrewsbury town which is a couple outta centre with loads of places to eat our or go clubbing.

    Its near Hodnet that should sell it. Shrewsbury is a nice looking town with its old buildings but a night out is a eye opener especially in Uncle Alberts Shed.

     

    Wher you moving to Ben ?

    Check the rail prices! London is commutable from Hastings if you don’t mind paying £80/day for the ticket!!

    That's what season tickets are for

    That makes Shrewsbury look even more reasonable then doesn’t it because it’s only £75 to get to London Euston by 830 tomorrow. I don’t use trains but like Zapp says you pay for a season ticket for a reason. 

    Another reason why Shrewsbury is a nice place to live property is cheaper so you can spend the savings on a comfortable car for your commute to London 😜

    That’s stunning. A very nice area too. Shouldn’t have too much trouble selling. Well out of my price bracket though I’m afraid. Good luck with the sale!

    Many happy memories  walking through the Dingle alongside the river after a couple of pints of Bass in the pub by the tennis courts  couple more in the Kings Head followed by two more in the Elephant and Castle.  Memories sweet Memories.

    Ben , are you Mark and Julia's , son then .

    No no mum and Dad have got the property before the shoot. The Hollies. There’s usually a sign offering eggs for sale and up until last April there was often horses to be seen flying sideways out of the end of the drive.

    Only worth it if you go into London 4 or more days per week.

    Not necessarily.  I work on london 3 days per week but in order to be able to be flexible on which days they are the cheapest option for me is an annual season ticket.

    Yeah its very pretty down there and you don’t notice the shooting when you live there. Unless someone’s shooting with an elephant gun! They’ve been lucky this winter it’s not been so wet. One year I had about 12 horses in and all the fields were under water for the majority of the winter!

    Train prices are very variable, I can regularly go from London to Bristol (where my son lives) or Cardiff for around a tenner by picking my times on trainline. My cousin lives in Chester, I have done that for under £30 return in the past. But if you have to do it every day you pay full whack.

    you must mean NW London, lol. Buy a street in Merthyr for that. :lol:

    Yes that's absolutely true. There was a house near Merthyr recently up for auction with a guide price of £15K
