Crowborough: A countryside escape for retiring couples

Crowborough: A countryside escape for retiring couples

For many, the prospect of retirement can be an exciting time. A new chapter begins in which you can truly dedicate your time to the more important things in life.

One of the many options retirement can offer is the opportunity to relocate. Older people looking to move are not restricted by things such as an easy work commute. Therefore you can focus on finding the best place for you, a place where you can truly enjoy your retirement.

Property for sale in Crowborough could offer the perfect place to settle down.

The East Sussex town is located at the edge of Ashdown Forest on the Weald. With surroundings that warrant the title ‘area of outstanding beauty’, Crowborough is situated in a truly fantastic spot.

Those who enjoy long walks and fresh air will be spoilt for choice as the High Weald area stretches for 564 square miles of serene British countryside. Estate agents in the 19th century often described the rural village as the ‘Scotland of Sussex’ in order to encapsulate its picturesque beauty.

Long distance paths across the Weald include High Weald Landscape Trail and the Weald Way. Many other walks are easily accessible from Crowborough town.

As well at the fantastic surrounding area, the town centre also has a host of leisure amenities to keep you busy in your retirement! The Goldsmiths Recreation Ground offers a leisure centre with swimming and exercise facilities as well as a boating lake to cater to your nautical side.

Real ale drinkers will be right at home with a selection of traditional English pubs scattered around the town. 

Crowborough is also relatively close to the likes of London, Brighton and Tunbridge Wells. With so many top cities on your doorstep, spontaneous shopping trips can be easy to arrange!

Sherlock Holmes fans may also be interested to know that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle once lived in the village. The town centre boasts one of the only statues of the famous author in the world.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801654360-ADNFCR
