Penkridge could offer retirement relaxation

Penkridge could offer retirement relaxation

As people approach retirement age they often look at moving away from the city and towards a more peaceful place offering a close-knit community feel.

There are a number of great market towns across the UK and one that could fit the bill for soon-to-be retirees is Penkridge.

The small Staffordshire town has a population of just 7,000, meaning that a sense of country calm is all but guaranteed for those who wish to relax in their retirement.

One of the most attractive things available to residents of Penkridge is its fantastic local market. Not just a place to get hold of local produce, the weekly event is also a place locals go to socialise, further reinforcing the community spirit of the area. The market happens every Wednesday and Saturday, the market attracts many people from the surrounding town due to its popularity and quality.

In addition to this, the town centre also boasts a number of amenities that are very useful for residents. There are plenty of independent stores and a supermarket for anything not available at the market.

Numerous pubs, cafes and restaurants are located around the centre, giving Penkridge a warm social scene - typical of a British rural village.

Many may think that due to its rural location, Penkridge would be cut off from the outside world. This, however, is not the case as the town possesses fantastic transport links.

Those looking for property for sale in Penkridge will be pleased to know the town is close to the M6, as well as having a well-connected train station.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801832390-ADNFCR
