When it comes to moving house and buying and selling properties, we know that everyone is different; while some may wish to move closer to family, others may be looking to start afresh somewhere new.
If you fit into this second category when it comes to moving, our list of the top five places to live in the UK might give you some inspiration on where you should move to next!
Hart in the county of Hampshire has been named the most desirable place to live in the UK for the past four years and it’s no surprise! With luscious countryside, independent businesses and a real sense of community, Hart is said to have the best quality of life in the entire country.
In the heart of the countryside and still only a stone’s throw from London, Elmbridge in Surrey really does boast the best of both worlds. Also a winner of the most desirable place to live, Elmbridge has a wealth of selling points on offer; excellent outdoor pursuits, historical sites of interest and an abundance of local boutiques and dining options.
Being the ancient capital of England, Winchester is steeped in history and culture. But that’s not all – at night, this quaint medieval city comes to life with its vibrant bars and incredible restaurants which pride themselves on their use of local produce. Being just under two hours from London, it’s no wonder Winchester is one of the most desirable (and expensive!) areas of the country.
Despite being the smallest county in England, Rutland has plenty to offer, hence their motto “Multum In Parvo” – Much in little!
Rutland is ideal for those who love the great outdoors, with plenty of walks, golfing and water sporting opportunities. It’s also home to two market towns and a multitude of theatres and art galleries -there really is something for everyone in Rutland!
As an area of outstanding natural beauty and just 40 minutes from London, it’s no surprise that The Chilterns is one of the best places to live in England. And, with fantastic market towns, heaps of outdoor activities and Michelin star restaurants it’s the perfect place for families and couples of all ages!
