Traditional rural lifestyle in Dorset

Traditional rural lifestyle in Dorset

The desire to live in a smaller settlement in the countryside can be particularly prevalent among many individuals across the UK, with the chance to live a quieter and more traditional lifestyle appealing to people who enjoy the cultural heritage of the country.

Such a brilliant location will be accessible to those who are viewing property for sale in Wimborne. Wimborne is a small market town located in East Dorset where a lot of the traditions from the historic past of the area are still able to be seen on a regular basis, ideal for those who really want to feel like they are part of a small community with a difference.

One of the biggest of these traditions is the large market,  which is held within the town every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, allowing people to get a feel for the real rural lifestyle, while they purchase some of the most popular local handmade goods, and a number of really fresh foods and drinks.

The town of Wimborne also still has its own town crier, unlike most settlements elsewhere in the country, which makes it stand out. This is a legacy which dates all the way back to the civil war, and the crier can be seen and heard in the centre of the town on weekends, as well as on national holidays; surely a sight to behold.

And for those who are looking for a bit of culture while they are living in Wimborne, the destination also plays host every summer to a large folk festival. The music and dancing event, The Wimborne Folk Festival, is the largest of its kind found anywhere in the south of England, and has been held in Wimborne every summer since 1980.

Every year, 15,000 people visit to see such events as traditional Morris dancing.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801330921-ADNFCR
