Burnham-on-Sea offers coastal joy

The town of Burnham-on-Sea could be the ideal setting for those approaching their retirement years.

Located in Somerset, there is plenty of property for sale in Burnham-on-Sea that could appeal to people looking to downsize to something more manageable as they grow older.

With a population of around 18,000 the coastal town is a really good alternative to busy city life and boosts a stunning landscape.

There are lots of opportunities to gaze over the lovely coastline because of the well-established walking routes that surround the town.

Anyone wanting to keep active in later life may also want to discover the Burnham-on-Sea sports academy offers the chance to join some new classes including pilates, swimming and spinning.

There is also a very popular bowls club that could be the ideal way to make new friends and increase social opportunities.

To the south of the town is the Apex Park, which offers a grant chance to wonder around the lakes, enjoy the wildlife or enjoy something more active. The park allows fishing and BMX biking, and there is also a skate park, a trim trail and a children's play area.

It is worth noting that Burnham-on-Sea's pier has been named as one of the top five in the country and is enjoyed by locals, as well as holidaymakers. The seafront itself is full of listed buildings that date back to the 19th century.

In terms of facilities and day-to-day living, the town centre has plenty of good shops all located within convenient proximity of each other. Burnham-on-Sea is home to both a Tesco superstore and a Morrisons, which makes the weekly shop a relatively easy affair and means the essentials are easy to pick up.

Burnham-on-Sea also has a number of local businesses and services that give the town a certain distinctiveness and offer residents the opportunity to support the community in which they live.  ADNFCR-1222-ID-801724428-ADNFCR
