Sedgely: Take the family to live in a lovely little village

Sedgely: Take the family to live in a lovely little village

Many young professionals who have lived in the big cities around the UK since their graduation will need to make a decision when the time comes for them to start a family. For most, it will no longer be practical to live in a busy and loud environment, and they will look to move somewhere quieter.

This can often be achieved by having a look towards some of the smaller settlements that exist around the large cities and commuting into work, giving the best of both worlds. A perfect example can be discovered when people view property for sale in Sedgley.

The large village in the West Midlands has only 11,000 residents, giving it a peaceful air that will be far removed from the sort of loud atmosphere new parents may have been used to in nearby Birmingham and Wolverhampton.

The biggest benefit for parents in this area comes in the form of the educational facilities on offer, which will always be one of the largest considerations for anyone who is starting a family for the first time.

Sedgley is home to a number of primary schools, including the likes of Queen Victoria Primary School, Cotwald End, Alder Coppice, St Chad's and Straits. The latter has improved in greater years to be known as one of the best in the entire Dudley borough.

In terms of the secondary education on offer, this comes from Dormston and High Arcal schools, both of which offer sixth-form facilities. The wide range of schools on offer means that new parents looking to move to the village are able to visit them all and make sure they find something which will most suit their own child.

Other benefits of living in Sedgely include the fact that it is the start point for a number of bus routes that head to the likes of Dudley and Wolverhampton, ideal for commuters making the daily trip to their workplace.

Meanwhile, the village is aesthetically pleasing, with many of the buildings erected pre-1900 still standing. It is also surrounded by greenery and countryside that means it is ideal for taking a walk as a family and getting a breath of fresh air.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801583199-ADNFCR
