I’d rather go self catering in Damascus with an American flag from my balcony. 

Roche Dalé. 

I don't want every man and his dog going to where I'm going. Beautiful it is, and quiet. Best keeping it that way.   Go to the Lakes, Dales or Cornwall. It will be rammed and it wont be enjo

I'd rather camp then live up north again.

(Or in Winchester, backwards as buggery)

Haha! 🎣

If you didn't spend so much of your hard earned on an overpriced bedsit, excruciating council tax and inflated bills for vile 'drinking' water you might be able to enjoy a holiday once a decade.

Winchester is lovely as you well know.

I have a huge XL 6 man airtent if you want to borrow one? 👍

If you ever go camping and the weather is good, it is a brilliant weekend (assuming most normal folk go for a weekend tops in blighty).

Problem is, 8/10 you experience crap weather up north, probably better odds on the south coast of course.

I worked in Chichester for 4 years, loads commuted from over there, that's all I need to know.

It's delightful, but its not a place I'd settle. Each to their own.

Just as well given the cost of a decent sized house down there.

True, it's tough, we pay 2k a month in rent for a 3 bed house. It's a lovely place, and we love being 20 minutes from central. But there is no mortgage here, future's at the moment are based in 12 months. 

You all have a much better balance, your money goes further.

Nope, my ex lives in Canterbury where the kids are at school, so we are here.

We were thinking about buying a place up back up north (thankfully my other half is a northerner) and renting it out until the time comes to move - but that won't be for at the very least until I'm mid 50s.

£2k per month for a 3 bed? That'd buy you about 4 x 3 beds in Bolton or 6 in Darwen.

If you get the right bed you can. Copious amounts of alcohol helps too.
