Need your personal recommendations to decide on property location

Hi there,

The area we live in has drastically changed in the last years to the worse and we are desperate to move house, but we are too afraid to end up buying somewhere with bad neighbors/ -hood. We are looking to buy a detached bungalow either as a smallholding or somewhere in a quiet and friendly neighborhood where people take care and pride in their properties and surroundings and respect their neighbors. Ideally it should be reasonable distance from the busy roads (maybe secluded and not overlooked), rivers, train lines or other potential nuisance sources. Located on the outskirts of any larger towns or countryside. The size and condition not too important as long the location and neighborhood is good and roughly fits into 300k budget. Maybe your neighbor or somebody else is selling in the area you personally know and can recommend?
