Hadleigh: Live in a peaceful ancient town

Hadleigh: Live in a peaceful ancient town

At the moment, with house prices sitting at low levels, there may be an opportunity for people, especially those who have perhaps reached retirement age, to take the plunge and try something new. 

A popular move for those in their twilight is to head towards the countryside and rural homes that give them a quieter place to live and spend their time.

These types of homes have previously been very expensive though, but now the chance for some people to afford them may have come.

If this is the sort of thing that you are looking for, then you could certainly enjoy what you find when seeking out property for sale in Hadleigh.

The dwelling itself is a market town located in Suffolk, between two larger areas in Sudbury and Ipswich. It is comprised of less than 3,000 residents, which makes it idyllic for people who are trying to get away from the city for some much needed peace and quiet in the countryside.

Being an ancient and historic town, Hadleigh is filled with old architecture which is a wonder to behold. Some of the town dates back as far as the 9th century, and there is a wide array of timber and brick listed buildings still standing in the area for people to peruse and learn a bit more about English history.

As well as this though, there are also numerous activities and cultural events. Sporting enthusiasts may want to take up a new pastime when living in Hadleigh, and will be pleased to know that the town's bowls and cricket clubs are the oldest in the county of Suffolk.

On top of this, there will also be the opportunity to get to know some of the locals and indulge in the real rural way of living at the biggest annual event Hadleigh has to offer.

The Hadleigh Show is the oldest agricultural show in the whole of England, and it is a very much revered show. The first of these events was held in 1840, and becoming a part of it will help residents feel like they are very much integrated into the community.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801410496-ADNFCR
