We're not just about building houses; we're about creating communities where people thrive and families can grow, and what better setting than the picturesque landscapes of the rural countryside?

In this blog, we're diving into some of the many benefits of rural living, from the health advantages of greenery to the unmatched tranquillity of country life.

Boost your wellbeing

Step outside your door and breathe in the fresh, crisp air of the countryside. Our developments, such as Amber Grove in Kirk Langley, are surrounded by plenty of greenery, offering a natural escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. If you’re looking for more of an adventure, Lawnswood is full of opportunities to explore. Situated within the National Forest, you’re a stone’s throw from wildlife walks and nature spotting.

Studies have shown that spending time in green spaces can reduce stress levels, lower blood pressure, and boost overall wellbeing, helping to improve your quality of life. Whether that is a long walk with friends over the weekend or maybe just taking a brief screen break while working from home, living rurally means that you have access to plenty of green spaces right on your doorstep.

Living in the countryside can also encourage a more active lifestyle. With scenic routes right in the heart of your community, there's ample opportunity for outdoor activities such as running, cycling or beautiful dog walks. 

Community connections

Rural communities often encourage a strong sense of neighbourly spirit. Far from the anonymity of city living, you'll find tight-knit communities.

Whether it's gathering for local events or lending a hand with some weekend DIY chores, living in the countryside offers a sense of belonging that is often found to be hard to replicate elsewhere.

Make the most of hybrid working

One of the main reasons why many consider relocating to a more rural area is due to the increase of flexible working schedules.

With companies allowing employees to work from home remotely or on a hybrid-basis, workers can expand their home search to more rural locations due to commuting less.

With properties such as The Madox at Oak View, Atherstone, those working from home are able to use the provided study-space as a productive setting to work from home in.

We also recently shared tips about how you can transform your spare room into the ideal work from home set-up here.

Space to grow

With larger plots and ample outdoor space, you can make your home your own, complete with garden space that can be customised for your needs. From hosting family barbeques to adding a climbing frame for the little ones or planting some decorative flowers, there is plenty of opportunity for you to tailor your outdoor space.

We believe that everyone should have a home where they can truly flourish and feel able to make their space their own. 

With our homes nestled in the heart of the countryside, we invite you to experience the variety of benefits of rural living first-hand. Embrace the tranquillity and healthy lifestyle options, along with the comforts of having a close-knit community on your doorstep.
