Dereham: Get back to basics in rural Norfolk

Dereham: Get back to basics in rural Norfolk

When the time comes to choose somewhere new to live, there will be many decisions for parents of young children to make that can influence the way they are brought up. For many, this now means taking the chance to move to a more rural location, where they can get back to basics and live a more simple and traditional way of life.

There are few places in the UK where this lifestyle can be better than that found when looking at property for sale in Dereham. The Norfolk town is home to just 15,000 people, which means that it is a quiet and serene place to raise children.

For when the kids get older, parents might want to know that the schools in certain areas are adequate and plentiful, and this is something they can be assured of in Dereham, where there are six primaries from them to choose from, allowing them to select something they feel will meet their child's needs best. There are also two secondary schools and a sixth-form college, showing that the town has a strong educational base - which is always a bonus.

When it comes to taking family life back to the basics though, there can be no better way than through extra curricular activities. Why not look towards a traditional scout troop for the kids? This gives them the chance to enjoy nature, get to know others and work as part of a team in a way that modern city life might not encourage.

There is also an army cadets troop that kids can sign up to to learn all about discipline and other life skills that will help stand them in good stead in the future.

And as a family, nothing can be more traditional and basic than just taking the chance to get out and enjoy the fresh air with walks around the local forest and green areas that surround the town.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801604658-ADNFCR
