Kings Norton: Enjoy rural life in the shadow of the city

Kings Norton: Enjoy rural life in the shadow of the city

Choosing a new place to live can be a stressful experience. Sometimes you just want the chance to get away from it all and relax, without having to truly be detached from your normal lifestyle, but discovering this can be a difficult task.

For example, you might want to move away from the big city while still living close enough to the area that you can work there and have access as and when you need it, but this is not always a possibility - unless you find the perfect settlement to relax into.

For those who live and work in Birmingham, but seek something a little different, the chance to turn their attention to property for sale in Kings Norton is one that should not be overlooked. A town with only 20,000 residents, it offers the chance to live somewhere much quieter than in the city - offering busy workers respite and the chance to relax.

And being just a few miles from the centre of the city itself means that people will be able to travel in on a daily basis without worrying about long commutes and troublesome journeys on public transport.

Some of the benefits of living in a place like Kings Norton include the fact that it retains a rural atmosphere while being very close to the city itself. 

An example of this can be found in its weekly farmer's market, established in 2005. This allows people to get out and meet other residents of the town, as well as buying the very freshest goods and wares sourced and made in the surrounding area.

Another benefit of living here will be the plentiful facilities that are on offer. At the end of a long working week in the city, the prospects of a busy urban pub will probably put many off, but the chance to travel home and enjoy a relaxing drink will be something that makes Kings Norton all the more attractive.

In addition to this, there is a golf club in the town, allowing locals to hone their skills and keep their fitness up as they enjoy a quiet round of 18 holes.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801594217-ADNFCR
