Rayleigh offers rural opportunity

Rayleigh offers rural opportunity

Property for sale in Rayleigh could be the ideal solution for anyone looking to make a break from the city and set up home in a more sedate location.

Real estate in the area has enjoyed strong demand in recent years as more people discover the small town's many attractions.

With the capital city of London being just 32 miles away, many commuters are also discovering that the Essex town is the ideal base and offers a great place to escape to out of office hours.

For families looking for education options, there are six primary schools and two secondary schools that should fit the bill in Rayleigh.

During holiday time, Rayleigh also offers a range of leisure activities, plus a number of clubs and societies that both children and adults might like to join.

One popular hobby for local residents is the town's brass band, which offers the chance to take up a new instrument or rediscover a previously enjoyed musical pastime.

Rayleigh also has two parks that provide an ideal location to indulge in some activities in the fresh air, such as walking the dog, taking a relaxing stroll or enjoying a healthy jog.

For those who prefer their exercise indoors, then the Rayleigh Leisure Centre may be suitable. It offers a number of classes designed to get the heart pumping and the body moving.

Residents are also very proud of the local Rayleigh Mount. The former medieval castle site is a haven for wildlife in the centre of the village and offers a great location to look across the whole of the Crouch Valley.

During summer, the National Trust-owned mount provides a backdrop for a number of open-air theatre events and there is also an adjacent sensory garden and windmill, which houses a number of key historical exhibitions.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801738529-ADNFCR
