What has OutdoorDuo done for me?

  Add a 'What has ...'

Thank you Outdoor Duo for connecting us back in 2015 ... 3 years on we're now a happily married couple! V&M x

I have met somebody to share with.

This has been a great group for friendships and great outdoor experiences as well as for dating. I now have a life partner, and have recommended OD to others who've joined. My heartfelt thanks to you! xx

Hi Di. I don't think you could go far wrong with somewhere around Matlock. Lovely area of the Peak District and if I was looking I think that might be the area I would look at

Thanks iansmyname..orisitjohn? I lived in Cromford for a few years working in Willersley Castle and got married there..lovely place but 'ghosts'. Property is a bit more expensive there....but a queen needs a castle not a shed ha ha

Glossop is ok within easy reach of a lot of good walks. Lot of shops and pubs and social scene seems to be developing. I've done most of my walking around there. Depends what you're looking for as central Glossop is mostly terraced housing. My friend Yvonne has lived there nearly 30 years and likes it. Janet lives there as well. I would avoid Hadfield or Padfield, though. What about New Mills or Buxton?

Look on right move Di. Matlock area is probably cheaper but it is still expensive for the east midlands. The market towns are cheaper than the villages and you don't get cut off in winter.

We live in Peak Forest about 5 miles from Buxton. Buxton is a really nice town. Lots of nice bars and social events and also lots of community based things to do. They are currently renovating the crescent into a 5 star luxury hotel and Spa and also opening a cinema at Christmas. It's quite a up and coming place to live.It's a great living in the Peaks. Hathersage is also a great little place. 20 mins to Sheffield on the train and about a hour to Manchester. It also has a Lido which is brilliant in summer and a great community feel. I would move to the High Peak area as more outdoor based activities on your doorstep. Hayfield is lovely but a bit pricey. Good luck.

Di....Towns/villages in the Peaks are expensive places to buy/rent homes, as you're probably finding out. Best to find somewhere just outside of the National Park; Buxton would be a good place to start

Thanks so much for your advice it's great you all care. As I am downsizing I am on a budget as want to buy a little buy to let where I live now - whilst I rent in the Peaks (JIC) ha! Thanks Pete yes Glossop is affordable for a 2 bedroomed about ?500 to rent. Thanks Lazio Woodbine -lots of variety on Right Move to buy and rent. Thanks Ally & Dave at moment as I want to invest in buy to let Buxton is over my limit but I totally agree a lovely place lucky you..Will take another look though's very exciting and to live near all you guys be fabulous. So much closer to my passion for running and walking or even swimming in the lido....
Thanks Miss T for your tips

Thanks for all your guidance and chats over the few days. Have decided too far to go to Glossop due to Mum and Richard's chimney story and traffic structure. Matlock too touristy. Belper looks like a good place so looking to rent there. Bit nearer to Peaks by far but still a nicy little market town and already tried the cinema x
