Clevedon: A peaceful coastal retreat

Clevedon: A peaceful coastal retreat

Retirement offers those calling time on their careers a certain freedom when it comes to moving home - especially as it means there is no longer the work commute to worry about.

It is quite common for older members of the community to seek out a more rural setting when they finish work, as these types of locations can offer a quieter way of a life as well as the chance to reside in England’s beautiful countryside.

For people looking for a place to live that could provide the above qualities, property for sale in Clevedon may be a good place to begin the search.

Home to around 21,000 residents, the Somerset town is a peaceful place situated in a coastal location, meaning that long walks along the seafront are a possibility for those who enjoy a brisk outdoor ramble now and again.

Clevedon contains a number of landmarks, some of which date back to Victorian times. One example of this is the town’s pier which is situated in close proximity to a number of local cafes and bars, allowing locals to take in the past while they enjoy a drink or a bite to eat.

On a clear day, the town’s coastal views are hard to beat in terms of natural beauty. In the distance, the Welsh Mountains create a dramatic backdrop that is said to have inspired many famous writers including Thackeray, Coleridge and Tennyson.

The town has plenty of shops dotted around the centre making the weekly shop an easy affair. National chain Morrisons has a store in the area and there are also plenty of locally-run businesses, which all help contribute to a thriving retail experience. 

Anyone looking to take a new sporting hobby or pastime could look to the Strode Leisure Centre. The sports facility is a great place to try something new, meet new friends, or just keep fit.

And for those of an artistic nature, the Clevedon Craft Centre is a great place to get involved in a variety of different activities.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801682572-ADNFCR
