Haywards Heath: Family life and commuting haven in Sussex

Haywards Heath: Family life and commuting haven in Sussex

Starting a family can be a moment in anyone's life that will throw up among some of the hardest decisions - among which will be trying to decide on the best place to live that will provide a happy medium, and something ideal for youngsters and parents alike.

Moving to a new area at this time will mean residents are looking for something quieter and less busy, while also needing a settlement that still gives them good access to the cities and large towns for their daily commute to be far from stressful.

This sort of place can be found by those who look for property for sale in Haywards Heath. The Sussex town has only 22,000 residents approximately, which means it is perfect for families needing a serene setting without the busy roads in which to bring up their children.

The other bonus of this settlement though, lies in the fact that it gives good access to some of the other bigger regions in the south of the country. It is only 36 miles from the centre of London, as well as being 12 miles from Brighton and 31 miles from Chichester, meaning anyone driving to work will be able to do so without much worry each morning.

One of the other important considerations for families will be the schooling systems in their new town. In Haywards Heath, there are a range of both primary and secondary schools that will make the town the ideal setting in which parents can find something that meets their kids' needs.

Away from work and school, Haywards Heath also offers a good range of activities and sights at times when you want to relax. There are many perfect green rural areas in which to take a walk or have a picnic as a family, for example. These include Beech Hurst Gardens, Heath Recreation Ground and the Western Road Cemetery Perimeter Nature Walk.

And at weekends, parents can take kids to Haywards Heath Leisure Centre for the chance to swim and find a range of different sports to try in the main hall.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801620301-ADNFCR
