Move the family to Honiton

Move the family to Honiton

For the chance to live somewhere which is family friendly and still attractive enough to make living there a new and interesting experience, much will need to be considered by homebuyers. These include such aspects as schools, transport links, amenities and perhaps a touch of culture and history.

One place which offers all of this can be found by those who are on the lookout for property for sale in Honiton. Honiton is a small town located in East Devon near the River Otter, and situated just to the north east of Exeter.

The fact that Exeter is only 17 miles away makes it ideal as a location for those who want to commute into the city for work purposes. It has its own rail station, so residents can find themselves in Exeter in virtually no time at all. For those longer trips, such as business meetings in London, the station is also ideally located on the London to Exeter line.

For the children, Honiton has one secondary school and two primary schools, which means that parents can rest assured that their kids will have a good future in education.

It is also a relatively small town, which has a population of around 11,000 people. This means that it will be a relatively safe and quiet environment in which to bring up your children, without the threat of fast moving traffic and millions of people.

And in terms of culture, the town still hosts a yearly event called the Hot Pennies ceremony, which is a tribute to past customs of nobles throwing warmed coins out of their windows to peasants, with shops and businesses still doing the same once a year.

The event also features a performance from the town crier, to make the whole experience seem more authentic and realistic.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801275819-ADNFCR
