Heathfield: Market towns can provide perfect way to live

Heathfield: Market towns can provide perfect way to live

The chance to get out and try something new is something many people are now opting for when they are purchasing new homes, with adventurous buyers looking at some settlements that offer little quirks and differences they might not have come across in the past.

For example, market towns are great little rural settlements that have risen in popularity in the last few years thanks to the fact they offer a mixture of both rural and urban lifestyles and give a little something for everyone.

One option that really encompasses this can be found when you are out and looking for property for sale in Heathfield. The East Sussex town is home to a small number of people, giving it a peaceful and relaxing aura, ideal for young families, retirees and even young couples alike.

Perhaps the most attractive part of the town is how much of a cultural hub it is, with a great many activities making it possible for people to get out and meet other residents and feel like a real part of the town. 

These include the likes of the annual Heffle Cuckoo Fair which is held every April and hosts a range of stalls, fun fair activities and other exciting things to do. There is also the Heathfield Show which takes place each May and hosts many more rural and agricultural events and happenings.

For parents, schooling will not be an issue that they need to worry about, as the town has much to offer in terms of educational establishments. Heathfield Community College is perfect for older kids, while the range of primary schools means parents can choose the one which is best suited to the needs of their own offspring.

Amenities will also be an important consideration, though, and this is another area where Heathfield will not disappoint. The town is home to a number of local and national stores including florists, bakers and Sainsbury's and the Co-op. There is also a leisure centre present and a small youth centre.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801631589-ADNFCR
