Live the quiet life in a market town

Live the quiet life in a market town

The sort of life that can be brought about by living in a more rural area is something which will be appealing to many people, especially those who are trying to raise their family somewhere quieter than in the big city, or for older people who have lived their life working in urban areas and now want to live in a place with less hustle and bustle.

If this is true for you, why not look for property for sale in Honiton?

Honiton is a civil parish and market town which is located in Devon, near to the larger dwelling of Exeter. The fact that it has only around 12,000 residents means that people who are planning to move to the town can expect a very quiet and relaxing way of life.

The town is perfect for those who are moving with their families, as it offers some great facilities both in and out of school terms so that parents can be happy with where they are sending their kids.

In terms of schools, Honiton is served by two primary schools and one secondary school. The fact that the latter also has a sixth form means that parents can rest assured that their kids can complete the whole of their education without having to travel to do so.

And leisure activities will also be important for those times when the kids are out of school. During the holidays, parents can take their offspring to the local sports centre, where they can take part in many sports, as well as swimming.

On top of this, Honiton is also a popular place for those who want to really soak up the countryside lifestyle. It contains a range of local shops and booksellers, as well as playing host to more than 20 antiques retailers, allowing people to indulge in a new kind of shopping.

There are also local customs to partake in, such as the Hot Pennies ceremony, whereby the town crier will start off proceedings, and people can see hot pennies thrown from a number of balconies to symbolise a time when this was common practice in the town.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801357573-ADNFCR
