Lyme Regis: Historic and natural coastal town ideal for older residents

Lyme Regis: Historic and natural coastal town ideal for older residents

For the majority of us, moving home will be something that will come with restrictions, with jobs, family and other aspects limiting the areas in which we can choose to live. However, for one demographic, the chance to move offers them a limitless opportunity to find somewhere they can really fall in love with.

Older people will frequently look for something a little different in their retirement, a settlement away from cities and big towns where they can take the chance to relax and enjoy a new way of life that they maybe could not while they were in full-time employment.

If this is something that you are looking for, then why not turn your eye towards the coastal towns that make the perfect seafront location to live in? You might find your perfect new home when viewing property for sale in Lyme Regis.

The Dorset town is located on the coast of the English Channel, and its charm comes in its look at the historic and natural aspects of its location. Those who have some spare time on their hands will love living in Lyme Regis because they can visit the cliffs that surround its beach areas to collect and discover ancient fossils that the region is famed for.

Another aspect of the town that will appeal to older residents will be the fact that it is a lot quieter than where they may have lived in the past. Although more people will visit the beach and Jurassic Coast in the summer, for much of the year there are only around 3,000 residents in the settlement, making it a quiet and relaxing environment in which to live.

The nature of Lyme Regis also means that it is home to a number of different cultural events that will make for a wonderful chance to meet locals and partake in the sort of activity you may have never seen in action before. These include the likes of the Lyme Regis Carnival and Regatta, the Fossil Festival and the annual huge Bonfire Night celebration.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801586404-ADNFCR
