Wareham: Quiet life and community

Wareham: Quiet life and community

Times change, and there will come a time in everyone's life when they want something different from the town or city that they live in.

For example, for those who have spent their whole life living in the city, it may be the case that retirement brings about a desire to move away from all of the hustle and bustle that comes with living in a bigger settlement brings.

With this in mind, a move to a more rural market town can be a great way to live, and few will prove more perfect for buyers than that found when looking at property for sale in Wareham.

The Dorset town is home to just 5,600 people, and city dwellers relocating there will find that they are living somewhere far quieter than they will have experienced in the past, giving them the chance to relax.

One of the key parts of living in one of the smaller towns like this around the country can be the fact that they give residents the chance to feel like they are a part of the community.

Nothing is more conducive to this than the local market, which Wareham still holds on Thursdays and Saturdays, allowing people the chance to mix with other locals and buy goods sourced and made nearby.

Events that showcase the town are a large part of Wareham's community, giving newcomers the ideal chance to get involved.

For example, each year it holds a local music festival that allows bands from surrounding Dorset areas to play both indoor and outdoor venues.

On top of this, there is also an annual carnival, in which residents can enjoy things like a fireworks display, a parade and various other events down at the town's quay.

And for those looking to see more of the countryside while they are living in Wareham, the chance to visit the River Frome or the South Dorset foothills will both give the opportunity to take a variety of walks and nature trails.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801550474-ADNFCR
