    Re: Pirbright Housing

    hiya,
    my husband is at the ATR. they could give u a house in pirbright, deepcut, aldershot and sometimes fleet.
    We live in deepcut. All the houses in pirbright and deepcut are pretty crappy im afraid to say! Id say put down herons way. heathers walk or coppershill for pirbright. id say they are the best houses!

    let me know if u need anymore info. do u have kids? my son goes to brookwood which is one the local school to the houses.

    dont expect to much as pirbright isnt the nicest of area but there is worse! if u get a house in pirbright, there is a nursery on camp and there is one attached to brookwood school. there is a few pre schools for younger kids around which take from 2.

    give me a shout if you need to know anything.

    Re: Pirbright Housing

    I used to live in Pirbright and it was lovely but I think a lot of the houses have been emptied now for either demolition or sale - not too sure. Pirbright is nice, there are a few parks for the kids and the spar is on the patch. Sainsburys is a car ride away, it is quite remote really. I had a 2 bed and it was a lovely size, the kitchen was really big. Good luck x

    Re: Pirbright Housing

    hi

    just to warn you, i just moved here with my family in april and i was put into beech grove, it is an absolute tip, you need to put in for adams croft as they are by far the best houses on the estate.

    other than that if you came from a decent house like we did be prepared for tears and lots of stress, as Aldershot HIC are nothing but heartless a*&^%$ they told me i would be made homless if i didn't accept this dump of a house, and i am now in the process of moving to aldershot, if you need more advice then email me i work on the ATC

    sounds like what they did with us! we were told if we didnt accept deepcut we would be homeless too. its a bloody trek up to pirbright from here everyday too (long way round).we came from catterick and originally from sunderland so it was a big shock moving down here!

    Me and my hubby are moving to the Pirbright area in the summer... thanks for the advise ladies! I've noted down the areas mentioned to be slightly better than others... I've heard a lot about how bad the Deepcut houses are... Anymore information regarding available housing in the surrounding areas is welcome! We will be filling in the paperwork shortly. Wish me luck.
