Street: A perfect Somerset village

Street: A perfect Somerset village

Looking for a new place to live in 2013? Why not take the opportunity to totally change your life this summer and completely change the sort of place you live? If you are an older person, for example, and you have gotten used to living in the big city over the last few years while working, why not opt to try retiring to somewhere more relaxing, quiet and low key?

If you think this is the sort of thing you might be interested in, then why not turn to the more rural settlements that are plentiful around the UK? There are reasons these idyllic little areas are becoming more and more popular, and you will struggle to find anything better than what will be discovered when looking for property for sale in Street.

The Somerset village is the perfect place to kick back and relax later in life, as is attested to by its small population of 11,000 - something which shows just how serene and quiet it will be for residents who take the chance to move there.

If you are interested in moving to an area like this, one of the big concerns you might have will be keeping active and fit in later life, but this is not something you need fret over in Street. The village is rurally located to the extent that there are a wide array of open and green spaces for people to make use of for dog walking, rambling and generally enjoying a perfect spot of fresh air.

It can also be good to make use of the facilities provided by the village, as it is home to two swimming pools for the public to access - although you might want to favour the indoor one at the Strode Complex for most of the year.

Leisure and entertainment will also be a big thing if you have not yet discovered hobbies to keep you busy in your post-work days. Have you considered the arts? In Street, the Strode Theatre, linked to the local college, shows a range of different touring and local live productions, as well as screening some of the top movies around.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801602512-ADNFCR
