Small town life is ideal in Devon

Small town life is ideal in Devon

It can often be the case that people who are looking for a change in their lifestyle, perhaps after the kids have left home, will try to seize the opportunity to try something different, and give themselves the opportunity to discover the countryside and what it has to offer while also finding a relaxing new home environment.

Such a location can be found on the south cost, which is often the scene for people who head into a new style of environment. The chance to try out a new environment can therefore be discovered by people who are looking at property for sale in Okehampton.

Okehampton is a very small town located in Devon, and it is comprised of just some 7,000 residents, making it the sort of place where people can relax and have some peace and quiet and really get to know the local community that they are living in.

One of the most notable aspects of Okehampton is the beauty of both itself as a town, and the other settlements which surround it. The town is bordered by a number of smaller dwellings and villages, as well as countryside which provides the perfect opportunity for new residents of Devon to take up walking and explore nature when they have moved there. A good example of this is the village of Folly Gate, a picturesque small area which gives people a great chance to find something new and attractive to explore.

Okehampton itself though also has a number of nice areas to discover, including the ruins of the castle which once stood in its town.

When living in a less heavily populated area, it will also be important to make sure that transport links are good to ensure that people have the chance to visit larger shopping areas when they need some retail therapy. Okehampton delivers on this front, with a number of buses travelling to the surrounding larger towns and cities.

In summer months, people can also travel to Exeter via the railway service, with plans in place to possibly extend this to a daily route.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801353345-ADNFCR
