The Beauty of Living in the Country: Wrestlingworth, Bedfordshire
“The English countryside has long been the subject of poems, dreams and aspirations. From quaint thatched cottages, village greens and ancient churches to cricket matches on summer afternoons, pubs with roaring fires on winter evenings and muddy hikes with the dog, rural living is fast becoming a preferred way of life.”
The current pandemic is causing many more people to work from home meaning the allure of the countryside is much greater. Why live in the city when you can have the peace and tranquility of a house in the country. Why live in a cramped flat when the same money will get you a house with a garden to enjoy. Why be surrounded by city fumes and constant lights when you can embrace nature and actually see the starlit nights. And if you do need to still make the commute Bedfordshire has a great road network and excellent fast rail links to London.
The sheer size of a large town or city makes it easy to feel isolated yet being part of a rural community gives you the chance to get involved, get to know your neighbours and have a say in local affairs that affect your village.
So say goodbye to the traffic jams and hustle and bustle of the city and consider the healthier and less stressful lifestyle that living in the countryside has to offer.
Wrestlingworth would make an ideal transition from an urban to a rural lifestyle. A pretty village close to the Cambridgeshire border it has picturesque views and offers a good sense of involvement with several community clubs available. There is a 14th century church and a welcoming 17th century pub serving home cooked meals and real ale, and the small market town of Potton is just 2.5 miles away where a wider range of facilities such as shops, restaurants, cafes and a library can be found. Wrestlingworth has its own primary school with an outstanding Ofsted report and there is also a great village park. Rail links to London are available in Biggleswade and Sandy, both within 5 miles of the village, and can be accessed via a bus service from within the village if you want to leave the car at home.
