Burnham on Sea: Ideal family life on the Somerset coast

Burnham on Sea: Ideal family life on the Somerset coast

Choosing where to live when the time comes to start a family can be a decision that leaves parents-to-be with headaches thanks to the many options available. While many accept the city is probably not the best place to raise a family, there are so many other perfectly fine places in which to do so.

However, for those who are looking for the perfect little quiet town to bring their kids up in, with the chance to enjoy peace and quiet and a multitude of family-orientated benefits, there will be few places that offer a better opportunity than property for sale in Burnham on Sea.

The coastal Somerset town has many great selling points, not least of which is the fact it has only 18,000 residents. The former village is a wonderful place to raise kids in peace and quiet where parents can be assured they will not be bothered by busy roads and noisy streets late at night.

Aside from this, one of the biggest considerations any parent will have will be with regards to the education of their kids - good schools are a must no matter where they move.

In Burnham, there are a number of primary schools, including Berrow Church of England Primary School, Burnham-on-Sea Community Infants School, St Andrew's Church of England Junior School and St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, which gives them the choice of where they send their kids, and the peace of mind that they can find something to meet their needs, whatever these may be.

Older kids will need to travel to nearby Highbridge for their secondary education, but parents will also be impressed by the wealth of sporting facilities at The King Alfred School, which will allow their children to get fit and healthy alongside their education.

Back in the town, it will be important for most parents that they have plenty to do as a family and the kids will not get bored easily. Thankfully, there are a great many things to do in Burnham.

The settlement has a pier down by the beach that is home to a cafe and an amusement arcade, perfect for all the family on a lovely summer's evening.

Other activities include heading to the beach itself in the summer holidays, and the plentiful supply of sports clubs for people to take part in, including the likes of rugby union, kite surfing and lawn bowls.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801637980-ADNFCR
