Somerset’s Winscombe offers quiet lifestyle

Somerset’s Winscombe offers quiet lifestyle

The town of Winscombe in Somerset could offer a great option for people wanting to make a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.

With a wide mix of property for sale in Winscombe, people searching for relaxed rural living could be pleasantly surprised what the small village has on offer.

It is currently home to around 4,500 people but has a number of much-needed facilities such as a GP surgery, dentist and a selection of shops.

One of the most popular retailers in the village is the Wine Shop of Winscombe, which can be found close to Winscombe's library. It runs regular monthly wine tasting events and plays a central role in the annual Somerset Wine Fair.

Winscombe also has the advantage of being just 14 miles from Bristol so ideal for those who working in the south west city or people wanting to enjoy the wide range of shops and other attractions a larger city can offer.

There is also a popular sports club in the village which gives locals the chance to partake in some bowls, cricket and rugby amongst other activities.

Parents looking to educate their children in the region will be interested to discover there are two schools in the village - the Churchill Community School and Sidcot, which is an independent fee-paying school.

There is little doubt that rural properties are amongst the most popular homes in the UK and a report by Halifax discovered that the average rural-based property in England is worth around £27,000 more than its urban counterpart as people are willing to pay extra to ensure they can enjoy a quieter place to live.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801697755-ADNFCR
