If you have lived in the city all your life, you may fancy a move to the country. Maybe it is something that you have always wanted, or maybe now you fancy a slower pace of life as you get a bit more mature, and prefer rambling walks and scenic views to bars and clubs.
Whatever your reasons there are a wide range of health benefits to living in the countryside, as well as a lot of options – you could find a really remote area to live, use someone like this self build homes Solihull based company, Ifurb to create your own unique country house, or find a quaint little chocolate box cottage in a country village.
There are a wide range of choices, so before you set your mind on one thing, it is well worth taking some time to explore the options available for your move to a rural area. It is also a good idea to research various rural areas and take into account what is important to you – for example, if you have young children does the local school have a good OFSTED report? If you don’t drive, what are the public transport links like?
There are a lot of lifestyle changes when you move to the countryside, so it is really worth considering how daily life will change for you, especially if you have never lived rurally it can be quite a shock to the system! But if you are happy with the lifestyle, it is certainly a healthier place to be.
