Stowmarket offers a great chance to relax for residents

Stowmarket offers a great chance to relax for residents

If you are coming towards the time for retirement, and have worked in big cities for all of your life, then you may be looking for a change when it comes to time to leave your job. This might mean taking yourself and your family away from the sort of loud and busy environment that you have lived in for years for a move to somewhere far more rural and low-energy.

Such places are common in certain counties around England, and one perfect location can be discovered by people who are trying to find the idyllic property for sale in Stowmarket. The Sussex market town is set in the perfect countryside location, and with only 19,000 residents, will be a big change from the city, making it the ideal quiet location.

Residents of Stowmarket will first of all notice that the settlement is surrounded by some of the best green areas and wooded places, all of which can make it the perfect location to head to for people who may be a little older but still want to stay active.

Long walks and nature trails in the summer months can be great for keeping yourself feeling young, and the rural setting of Stowmarket will make this very easy.

As well as this, the town lives up to its billing when it comes to events which locals can take part in. For example, new residents can get to meet their fellow Stowmarket homeowners at the twice-weekly market which takes place on Thursday and Saturday, with many different items and wares on sale.

Similarly,  there is a farmer's market held each week on a Friday. At this event, locals can find meats and other products which are all sourced from farms in the surrounding area.

Other ways to get to know neighbours could come in the shape of annual events, such as Stow-Fest, an ever-growing music festival which welcomes a far higher number of local and national bands each year.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801425625-ADNFCR
