    Default Where to live in Sheffield?

    I have a job interview in Sheffield tomorrow morning. If I get the job, I wont be able to commute from York so would be looking at relocating to the city but don't know it well enough to know what areas I should be looking in and wondered if there are any members who live in/around the city who could offer advice on the best places to be renting?

    My main priority is decent schooling as my son will be starting primary next year but I'd like to be in a location where he can go up through feeder schools from infants to juniors to secondary locally.

    I'd also like to be able to to leave the bedroom window open at night in the summer without some little sod shimmying up the drain pipe and pinching the wife's jewellery!! Oh and I'm not one for wild nights out clubbing so don't need to be within staggering distance of the night clubs.

    The ability to get to the Attercliffe area of the City via public transport would be useful as this is where the job is. Budget wise my new salary would probably allow me to stretch to £800p/m (I dont know if that rules out any particular areas).


    Thanks in advance.

    Have you considered the vicinity of Sheffield? Chesterfield is about 10 miles from Sheffield and property is cheaper and it's quieter, easy commute, I did it for years in the past + good train, bus links.

    I think Chesterfield is too far for me as it then involves an extra train journey into the commute (ideally I'd like to be able to walk to the nearest tram stop hop on a tram and and get off at Attercliffe).

    Hmmm, I dont live in sheffield, but i do alot of work IN and around that area quite often. It is a world away from York in terms of prettyness, and crime (in a bad way) so i would look in the outer areas, such as Chesterfield. I dont mean to offend anyone from Sheffield by saying this but my line of work is all aspects of security systems. I often come accross premisses that have been 'Done over' around sheffield.

    Yes but then you need to weigh up the cost of property/rent in or near the centre of sheffield against a commute. By car you can get into sheffield in 20 mins and if your place of work have parking then it's straightforward. Chesterfield (or any surrounding small towns) are a lot less likely to have a little sod shimmying up the drain pipe and pinching your wife's jewellery.

    Im sure there are nice areas around Sheffield, most of my work mates live in Sheffield, most have had a break in/something stolen at some point. In my line of work i often see the bad things that have happened to people and their premisses, Sheffield and Rotherham seem to have quite a high crime rate thats all. I personally wouldnt live there, and where i live isnt exactly great!

    you get what you pay for in sheffield, i prefer the north but some nice bits in the south .you may find that most areas within walking distance of the tram aren't the best-with some exceptions.i'll stick with crookes as i lived there for 4 year before moving just up the hill and as i said schools are some of the best in the city .some of sheffields outskirts are ok ,if you need to travel in rush hour it will pay to avoid crossing the city as traffic is terrible....hth
    not wanting to offend anyone but stay away from darnall and surrounding area
