Burnham-on-Sea: Ideal for relaxation in retirement

Burnham-on-Sea: Ideal for relaxation in retirement

Many people who are heading towards their retirement will think that it could be a good time for them to move to a quieter and more peaceful location, which can often be a world away from the city that they have spent many years working and living in. Some of the perfect destinations for people looking to make this sort of change can be found by the seaside.

One such location can easily be discovered by people who are seeking out property for sale in Burnham-on-Sea. The Somerset seaside town has a population of just 18,000, meaning it will be far less busy than residents moving from cities will be used to, allowing them a serene and peaceful way of life.

Being on the coast, those who choose to move to Burnham-on-Sea will be able to enjoy many long walks with their other half down by the sea front, and may even take the time to take a stroll along the concrete pier to see its attractions. Billed as the shortest of its kind in the country, the Burnham-on-Sea pier has also previously been voted one of the top five in the UK.

Other iconic buildings in the town include its old lighthouse, which is an icon of the area, and attracts many visitors to come and see the historic site. Built in 1930, the lighthouse is one of the defining features of a beautiful seaside settlement.

For those older people feeling a little more active in their old age, the town also plays host to a number of sports. Enthusiasts may be keen on joining the popular bowls club, where they can hone their skills against an all new group of friends.

The Burnham-on-Sea Swim and Sports Academy also has a swimming pool and a number of other sports facilities that can help older residents stay active and fit even when they reach their twilight years.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801452672-ADNFCR
