    Corsham/Devizes

    Hi,
    My Husband is being posted to Corsham soon, so i was wondering if anyone had any idea what the housing is like in theese areas?

    We will need a 4 bed (4 kids) but the housing people say they are really rare and they only have 1 available atm so may need to rent privatley so where seems nice, with good schools etc.

    Also, how soon will we know if we can have an sfa or need to rent? The housing form was faxed yesterday and posted today, As Husband is due to start work in about 10 weeks, (its been a nightmare getting the nessecary info just to know we are posted, let alone someone to sign the forms) I am becoming a little nervous.

    Doesnt help that DD has her SATS 3 weeks after Husband starts, so we would like her to settle into a new school as soon as possible.

    Thank you in advance for any help

    Devizes is actually a nice wee area, much better than the sh/hole that is Swindon There's a fabby butcher in Devizes, and various other little places to visit. And as you're in a good location for motorways etc. there are loads of lovely areas to visit within an hour's distance , or less.
