No kids so school and anything related not a factor. Lots of friends in South so that is preferable but happy to look around elsewhere if there's good options.

Penge, maybe Sydenham, East Croydon - Stay Away from West Croydon, Other than that you're looking at Deep SE like Charlton, and those areas.

Cheers, chaps. A few in there that I hadn't considered. Penge, CP and Becks slightly outside my price-range I reckon.

Anyone know much about Bexleyheath, Plumstead and surrounding areas?

Nutbourne on Ransomes Dock has a decent outside space on the dock. Probably booked but worth a try.

Bexleyheath and Plumstead is what I was referring to as Deep South East, out of those two I would prefer Bexleyheath, Plumstead is cheaper but I find it just too far out and excuse the term just Grey and Dingy, you go to live there when hope dies. You're close to Woolwich as well which is quite high on crime.
