Newent: Choose the perfect market town

Newent: Choose the perfect market town

Choosing somewhere to live when you are younger can boil down to practicality and the need for certain amenities. However, when you are older, it becomes far easier to choose something you love and a place that really draws you in.

Retirees have the freedom to select something with a difference that offers them the sort of quiet life they may not have experienced during their younger years if they were working in busy towns and cities. For this reason, many will opt to look towards market towns that populate much of rural England.

The perfect option can be discovered when you are looking at property for sale in Newent. The Gloucestershire market town epitomises everything that has made this type of settlement popular in recent times, with a focus on the community and an atmosphere built around history and heritage.

There are also only 5,000 people resident in Newent, which makes it a great place to enjoy a peaceful retirement. 

Events throughout the year really make the town what it is for residents, with the likes of the annual onion fayre offering various growing competitions and masterclasses, allowing former city dwellers a little taste of the rural atmosphere.

Other highlights of the town include its many facilities, which includes the likes of Newent Leisure Centre, a council run establishment which hosts a swimming pool, a gymnasium and a multi-purpose hall which can be used for the likes of tennis, badminton and other sports that will help older residents remain active.

However, perhaps the best part of all about living in Newent is simply the beauty and serenity that it exudes. The town is home to a number of timber fronted buildings from times gone by that look fantastic and really help with the aura of the area, while it is also situated in Forest of Dean's Golden Triangle, named because of the daffodils that are prevalent throughout the region.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801634690-ADNFCR
