Penkridge: Perfect life in market town settlement

Some of the best places to live around the UK are now seen as being the more rural settings that bring peace, quiet and a real feeling of being a part of a community. However, these can occasionally be difficult to find for people who also want good access to amenities and good facilities.

For these people, the tiny villages peppering much of the countryside won't be of much use. However, they can make use of property for sale in Penkridge. The market town is situated in Staffordshire and gives all of the serenity and peace of rural life alongside having the chance to enjoy some of the essential amenities around.

With the town being home to only around 7,500 people, residents can always rest assured that they are going to live somewhere that is not busy and very quiet - ideal for both people looking to enjoy their retirement or raise a family away from the big city atmosphere.

There are a number of shops, cafes, small pubs and inns around the town which means that residents will not have to travel too far afield in order to find things they need like weekly groceries or a cup of tea and a chat with friends.

However, one of the biggest and best aspects of living in places like Penkridge is the community feel that towns like this project. Getting the chance to meet people and feel part of something is a very important part of life in Penkridge.

The local market has been revived in recent times thanks to local demand, although it was moved out to another area further from the town centre. Now taking place on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the market gives people the chance to enjoy shopping for locally sourced and made goods as well as having the chance to mingle and mix with other residents of the town.

And each summer the market settlement is also host to a town fair which is popular with those who live there. With 70 different stalls to try foods, clothing and other little bits and bobs alongside fair rides and other fun activities, it makes for a favourite event.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801608289-ADNFCR
