Coleford: Something for everyone

Coleford: Something for everyone

When it comes to small settlements in some of the rural areas of England, there are often large factors that sway the popularity towards older people or families, such as a raft of activities or an abundance of educational facilities.

However, occasionally there comes a town or village where everything has fallen into place to make it the perfect setting for people of all ages to live in. Such an area can be found in the county of Gloucestershire with property for sale in Coleford.

A small market town with only 8,300 residents, the region will be quiet enough for young families to bring up kids in, as well as older people who want the chance to enjoy their latter years in peace and quiet.

With its position near the River Wye, the town is also a popular spot for a number of different activities and facilities. It is a favourable spot for anyone who fancies enjoying a little countryside walk in a rural setting or canoeing, which is prevalent in the area.

It is also ideally placed for those who want to visit other larger settlements, whether it be for work, shopping or just leisure. Its position in the county means that access to Wales, a short ride over the border is simple, as is travel to the likes of Gloucester, Birmingham and London.

Back in the town itself, there are a raft of activities in which residents can partake, including the likes of a visit to the local railway museum. This gives parents and kids alike the opportunity to enjoy the culture and history of Gloucestershire while learning about the wonderful past of the British rail networks and how they helped to connect a nation.

History is also one of the big reasons why the town looks so beautiful all year round. Home to a wide range of Georgian architecture, Coleford is a fantastic place to just walk around and enjoy the wonderful old buildings and the aura they give off.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801561300-ADNFCR
