Coleford: Ideal for young families

Coleford: Ideal for young families

When starting a family, you will be looking for a place to live which is not too loud and busy and has plenty to do to keep the kids busy when they get a bit older.

Places like this can be best found in rural areas, where there are options in terms of local schooling and many activities that will make you and your family feel like part of a tight knit community.

Such a perfect option for moving to as a young couple looking to expand your family can be discovered when having a look through the various property for sale in Coleford. The Gloucestershire town is the largest in the Forest of Dean, and its natural surroundings and rural aura make it feel really idyllic.

The town is a very popular spot for walkers thanks to its very favourable position in the countryside, and the fact that it is located near forestry. This is something that families may look to indulge themselves in so that they can get some fresh air and enjoy each other's company.

Other popular activities in the town include the likes of canoeing and cycling, both of which would be great hobbies to get children into from an early age so that they can stay fit, healthy and active throughout their teens and beyond.

And if you want to give them a little bit of education on where they come from and the area they live in, the town plays host to a beautiful railway museum, which shows the history of the transport, as well as the line that it exists on.

Other benefits of living in Coleford can include its beautiful architecture. Many of the homes and other buildings in the city are Georgian in their history and origin, despite the fact that some have been covered over by new facades. However, those which still carry the original look will make for an attractive setting to live in.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801438404-ADNFCR
