Clevedon: The perfect retirement setting?

Clevedon: The perfect retirement setting?

For older people around the UK, retirement should not be seen simply as a time when they stop working - it should be viewed as an opportunity and a chance to do something that they have never done before.

Many will choose, for example, to take on a new hobby or a volunteer role, but for some others, the chance will arise to move to a new home in an exciting new area that can be far removed from anywhere they have lived before and offer a totally new atmosphere to that where they lived in their working life.

One such area that will give them this in a more rural and relaxed setting can be found when getting out and looking at property for sale in Clevedon. The Somerset town is home to just 21,000 people, perfect for those looking for peace, while its coastal location makes it the ideal place to enjoy some fresh air and sea views.

Finding things to see and do in Clevedon will never be a problem for those retirees who choose to live there. The chance to enjoy a quiet stroll along the beach front in the summer evenings, for example, is one not to be overlooked, while the historical nature of some of its structures can also be very appealing.

One example of this is the town's pier, which dates back to Victorian times. Residents can enjoy cafes, bars and the chance to reminisce over days gone by with arcades and other attractions on the pier.

Other attractive older buildings in the area include the likes of Clevedon Court, one of the only remaining 14th century manors in the country, which is perfect for a day trip and a visit to see the beautiful architecture. The town is also home to a 19th-century clock tower.

And for anyone who is looking for a new hobby, the Clevedon Golf Club can be a great way to get out and about and stay active while enjoying the thrill of competition.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801626289-ADNFCR
