Wymondham: A quiet alternative to the suburbs.

As cities expand and grow ever busier, many people are looking to relocate to a quieter more relaxing environment. Britain has no shortage of fantastic rural towns. In fact, these quaint clusters of countryside dwellings contribute vastly to the heritage of the UK.

Market towns in particular provide a healthy mix of history and fantastic countryside. A far cry from urbanised suburbs, these types of places offer a much more traditional way of living.

Property for sale in Wymondham possesses many of the aforementioned qualities, if these are the attributes you seek in your new home.

With a population of just over 13,000, the Norfolk town is an easygoing alternative to other metropolitan areas.

A great deal of the town’s buildings are made out of flint, a material typical in 19th-century architecture. The magnificent Wymondham Abbey is another example of the striking masonry in the area.

One of the best features of Wymondham is the fact that there is still a traditional market in regular occurrence. Taking place once a months, the farmers' market allows residents to get hold of some of the best natural produce in the area.

Many move to a rural area to take full advantage of the surrounding countryside and in this aspect Wymondham does not disappoint. Half an hour either side of the town lies two of the UK’s finest spots of natural beauty. One being the Norfolk Broads and the other the Thetford Forest Park.

Both of these areas are perfect for those who like to spend some time nature. The Broads, in particular, are home to many wonderful views and scenic walks.

While its easy to get carried away with the simple life, some may still have to consider the commute to work. Wymondham’s proximity to nearby Norwich ensures that professionals who work in the city still have a reasonable drive to the office.
