Great Wakering: Beautiful village near to the capital

Great Wakering: Beautiful village near to the capital

Most people will think of Essex as something of a gateway to London, with many commuter areas allowing people to live a decent family life while also having great access to the capital for the chance to work in the city. However, the county has so much more to offer, and those who look a little deeper will find something to suit all tastes.

For example, for those looking for a family life that is a little more traditional and rural in its essence, Essex has a number of lovely little villages that can make this a reality. One example of this can be discovered when looking at property for sale in Great Wakering.

The village is located near to Southend, which is accessible by a bus service, allowing locals to get to the larger shops and supermarkets when they need to get the groceries in on a weekly or monthly basis.

However, if it's a quieter lifestyle people seek, then the village itself is absolutely ideal, with the picturesque and peaceful settlement giving people suitable amenities and plenty to see to make their life there seem serene and perfect.

In terms of things to do, people can get out and about and just see what the town has to offer in terms of sights. Dating back to the Norman times, the settlement has much in the way of historic things to see and old buildings to marvel in.

In terms of facilities, the village is typically rural, which gives it a real charm for residents. As well as a number of small and traditional pubs, there is also a Co-operative store, a post office, a hairdressers and a number of small local village stores that add a real character to the town with their community led themes.

Parents will also be glad to know that the area has its own primary school, meaning young kids are not forced to travel for miles every morning and can learn close to home with all their friends.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801587110-ADNFCR
