Be happy …
The property portal, Rightmove, has recently announced the names of the happiest places to live in the UK and, perhaps not surprisingly, the conclusion is that living in rural and coastal areas and feeling part of the community, in particular, are key contributors to happiness.
The ‘Happy At Home’ index, which was conducted amongst 21,000 people, based its findings on a number of factors including whether the respondents feel they belong in the area they live, the friendliness of others living there and on what local activities and amenities exist.
Top of the list of the 20 most happy places came St Ives in the South West followed by Skipton, Leamington Spa, Llandrindod Wells, Perth, Kendal, Stratford-upon Avon, Dorchester, Harrogate, Richmond upon Thames, Falmouth, Hexham, Weymouth, Shrewsbury, Tonbridge, Plymouth, Poole, Northwich, Barnstaple and then Guildford.
So, if you are looking for some happiness, why not take a look at the selection of properties we’ve put together that are currently for sale in a few of these happy places remembering that, as a national agent, we’ll do our best to find your dream home, wherever it may be.
