Earls Colne offers retiring peace

Earls Colne offers retiring peace

Across the UK, there are many people who are looking at moving towards places where there is always something going on and where there is a lot to do.

For others though, especially people who are retiring and would like the chance to relax in the relative peace and quiet of rural areas, the chance to move to the countryside and somewhere where they can put their feet up will be ideal.

This sort of settlement can be found when out and about looking at property for sale in Earls Colne. The little Essex village is named after the river that flows through it, and it is a picturesque and historic area ideal for retirees.

With only around 4,800 residents or so, this is the perfect place to go when you want to relax, with quiet streets and roads seeming a million miles from the busy areas that older people may have been used to throughout their working life.

Highlights of the town include its setting. Many of the original buildings that made up the town stand there to this day, with some dating back as far as the 15th century thanks to stringent restoration and preservation. This makes the village a great little place to live with a good aura around it and much to see.

Aside from this, there are also a raft of things that need to be seen while living in Earls Colne, including the Earls Colne Heritage Museum, which is situated in the old town water tower, where residents can learn all about the history of the surrounding area.

Activities will also be a key consideration, of course, and there are many things for people moving to the village to do to keep themselves busy. Those with a keen eye for sport might want to turn to the village's old airfield, which is now home to a golf course, where they can enjoy 18 holes and socialise with new friends.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801731134-ADNFCR
