Cinderford suitable for friendly living

The town of Cinderford in Gloucestershire could be the perfect place for those starting to think about bringing up a family away from the busy city lifestyle.

With less than 10,000 residents, the town is perhaps better suited for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy a more laid back approach to day to day living.

For some the thought of moving away from familiar and convenient locations can be a little daunting but Cinderford could be one place that could help alleviate these fears as it is steeped in great history that more than makes up for its relatively small size.

There are plenty of places close by for people to find out more about the local area, including the Gloucester Folk Museum.

One of the oldest museum focusing on social history in the UK, it has a wide range of collections gathering objects from across the county.

It has also benefited substantially from lottery funding and a recent refurbishment has created the Folk Tea Rooms - serving lots of local and seasonable foods in a suitably vintage environment.

Cinderford is also perfect for people who enjoy the great outdoors as there are plenty of stunning nature walks and rambles on offer in the Forest of Dean area.

For those who still want to access the facilities offered by the bigger areas once in a while, there are good transport links from Cinderford.

Buses link the town with its neighbours, while Gloucester train station, which has parking, offers regular services to major shopping areas such as Bath, Bristol, Birmingham and London.

Families looking for property for sale in Cinderford will also be interested in the local schooling options. The town is home to three primary schools, as well as a secondary school for older children.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801716687-ADNFCR
