Serene surroundings in Ditchling

For many Brits who are reaching retirement age, it may be time to start to look for somewhere to live which is a lot quieter and free from the hustle and bustle of the city, and these types of people may be ideally suited to one of the many villages situated around the English countryside.

With plenty to do to keep older residents busy, one destination which may be ideal for those about to head into their retirement may be easily discovered by people looking for property for sale in Ditchling.

The small village has just 2,000 residents, which means it will be the ideal small village environment, where locals are the focus, and people can feel part of the community. It will also be fairly quiet, making it perfect for someone looking for a more relaxing way of life.

It is located ideally in the South Downs national park, and such natural surroundings will mean that it is perfect for those who are looking to get out and stay active in their latter years by heading for walks and other activities in the countryside.

The village is also home to many important religious buildings, which may be interesting not only to people who attend church regularly, but also those who like to learn a bit about the history of the country.

St Margaret's Church is a mostly 13th century building, but the nave within it is still the original 11th century structure, making it a highly interesting place to visit.

On top of this, there are also various 17th and 18th century buildings around the town with religious backgrounds which will make it an ideal setting in which to live for anyone with a soft spot for religion or history.

And to make you feel like part of the local community, there is also an annual fair hosted in Ditchling, to which many locals will flock, and there will be chances to buy many handmade local products.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801396313-ADNFCR
