    Hi Karen,

    Firstly welcome to RP and I saw your posts on ARRSE too, so walcome there also!

    There are many threads asking the same questions as you are about married quarters, unfortunately i do not know anyone at Luffenham, so you will just have to have a root about.

    Good luck!

    hi karen,

    you could also try getting in contact with the hive for that area they might be able to give you some info okay
    i not really sure apart from that, the only other ppl i can think of is the defence houseing.
    not sure if any of these are any good but good luck x

    I know a few people in N Luffenham just now. They all love it. The quarters were all empty for quite a while and so there were a couple of problems to start with but apparently it's all straightened out now. It's beautiful countryside and everyone who wants to work seems to be able to. Email the HIVE and they'll tell you want you need to know.

    As far as living in Army housing is concerned it depends on what you're expecting and what you're used to. If you grew up in a stately home you might be a little disappointed. On the whole, they're OK, some are great, some are truly ing. North Luffenham isn't on the truly ing list from what I hear though.
