Cheltenham provides great family life

The town of Cheltenham could offer a real solution for families, couples and individuals looking to relocate in the near future.

Close to the Cotswolds, the Gloucester town has plenty of facilities and attractions that could appeal to those wishing to settle down in a smaller location.

However, it also benefits from being close to places like Gloucester and Bristol, while it offers good transport links to the likes of London and Swindon too, making it an option for people who may be looking to commute for work.

One of the main attractions of buying property for sale in Cheltenham is the busy art scene and there are two main events held every year that highlight the cultural appeal of the town.

The Cheltenham Literature Festival and the Cheltenham Jazz Festival attract people from around the world and boast appearances from some of the globe's top performers.

There is also the annual Cheltenham Food & Drink Festival that appeals to avid foodies and often includes cooking demonstrations from leading celebrity chefs, such as the Hairy Bikers.

For sport fans, Cheltenham is also the venue for the famous Gold Cup. A major event on the steeplechase calendar, it provides a great excuse to dress up and partake in some betting.

People who prefer to indulge in some retail therapy will be pleased by the town's main shopping centres - Regents Arcade and Cavendish House - with both containing a mix of smaller traders and popular high street brands.

For everyday essentials, there is also a number of large supermarkets that offer convenience.

In terms of education choices, there are more than 30 schools for families with children to pick from so there should be something to suit all age ranges.

There are also plenty of local facilities that cater for families, including the Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust and Sandford Park Lido, which offers great swimming facilities and landscaped gardens - making it the ideal day out during the long summer holidays.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801827552-ADNFCR
