Mildenhall: Lovely little Suffolk settlement

Mildenhall: Lovely little Suffolk settlement

When looking for somewhere to live, there are different things that different demographics will require from their new settlement of choice. For example, while younger people may seek a nightlife and plenty to keep them excited, older residents will often want somewhere relaxing and built around the community.

This sort of atmosphere can be found in many of the more rural areas around the UK, and in particular the sort of town that can be found when looking for property for sale in Mildenhall.

The Suffolk market town is home to only 9,000 residents, which makes it perfect for the retiring couple who want the chance to relax and enjoy their life away from work without all of the noise associated with big cities and towns.

It is an area that is centred around its community atmosphere, and this is never shown off more than on market day. Each Friday, residents can come to the town centre, where they can mingle with their neighbours and browse the many local products on sale.

Other aspects of life here that make Mildenhall a great place to live include the fact that it still gives a nod to the past and the history of the area, which many will find very interesting, whether they are visiting the plentiful 15th-century buildings around the town or visiting the local museum to learn a little more about the settlement.

There is also a leisure centre situated on Bury Road just outside the centre of the town, which is perfect for older residents who want to stay fit and healthy with a little visit to the gym or a friendly game of badminton.

Another thing that many older people will look for is a good transport system, and this is another area where the town excels. Buses in the area will travel to neighbouring towns of Brandon, Bury St. Edmunds, Newmarket and Thetford. There are also National Express coaches, which operate daily to Norwich, London (Victoria Coach Station), Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted Airports.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801642064-ADNFCR
