“Mark and I had been living in London and were both keen to relocate. Mark moved back to Hampshire in 2009 and after travelling back and forth for a few years, we both decided it was time to leave the city and settle down in the country. Our maisonette is really spacious and we have a good sized garden, which is an added bonus as we never had a lot of indoor or outdoor space in our London home.
It is really easy to get around, the transport links are great. Despite the fact that my commute is long, it is very simple and I just use the time to relax. It’s less stressful than travelling around London!
We are in a fantastic rural location and situated about a mile from the beach, so we really benefit from a more outdoors lifestyle than we had in London. There are plenty of activities in the local area; we enjoy long walks and there are some great cycle routes which we use at the weekend. There is a really strong community atmosphere here too and we get on really well with all our neighbours – life is just a lot more peaceful in the country."
