Cinderford offers choice for retirement

The Gloucester town of Cinderford could be an ideal choice for anyone planning to relocate for their retirement.

Home to around 8,000 people, there is plenty of property for sale in Cinderford that could appeal to those looking to downsize.

There is certainly a great deal on offer in the area and a variety of things happening to ensure strong opportunities in retirement.

For those with an interest in arts and crafts, Cinderford has lots that could appeal. There are a number of arty shops and galleries, as well as places offering short courses in a whole range of techniques and crafts.

Recently added to the town is a special Artscape facility, which hosts a number of creative studios.

The centre of the town, called The Triangle, has two main sculptures - the town's war memorial plus a statue of local freeminer Dave Harvey.

People who prefer the outdoors will be pleased to discover the town is close to the Royal Forest of Dean and is therefore bound to appeal to anyone wanting to enjoy the local countryside.

The forest is home to around 20 million trees and is a beautiful expanse of natural green scenery that is located between Cinderford and nearby Coleford.

Cinderford offers a variety of shops, one of the best Indian restaurants in the region, plus a range of top movies which are shown in a restored Edwardian theatre - the Palace Cinema.

In retirement it can be vital to keep active and Cinderford offers two local gyms, which provide a range of activities and classes for residents to get involved in. There is also a local swimming pool for those who enjoy their exercise in water.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801741438-ADNFCR
