Thetford: relax in a rural market town

Moving house is a huge decision for many and so finding the perfect property is essential for those who have chosen to relocate.

When it comes to locating a new home, there are many different things to consider. Do you want to be close to a big city or would a more rural area be better suited to your needs?

If the latter sounds like you then property for sale in Thetford may be just what you are looking for.

This lovely Norfolk settlement is a market town with a population of around 22,000. It offers a peaceful way of life to those who call it home, perfect for those who fancy somewhere a little quieter.

Even though Thetford is very much located in a rural setting, it offers good transport links to other parts of the UK - Norwich in particular. Easy access is available to both A roads and motorways as well as rail links to London.

The town is steeped in a rich history that dates back to the Iceni queen Boudicia. Officially her royal residence, archeological evidence uncovered in the area suggests it was once an important tribal centre during the Iron Age.

Coming back to the modern day though, there is plenty for one to enjoy in Thetford. The town boasts an impressive range of shops that cater to all tastes. Tuesdays and Saturdays see the town host a small market where the locals can do their weekly shop.

Thetford Forest Park offers residents a chance to get out and about in Britain's largest lowland pine forest. Whether you like exercising outdoors or you just enjoy a stroll in the woods, this area of beautiful, natural scenery is yet another positive to living in Thetford.

Any parents moving to the area will be glad to learn that there is a decent range of educational facilities in the town. There are both junior and primary schools in the locality as well as establishments like Thetford Academy and Thetford Grammar School for older and younger children alike.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801678712-ADNFCR
