Are you either already in the UK housing market or you’re planning to be soon? It can be daunting to say the least when you have so many things to consider such as mortgage rates, insurance, lawyer’s fees and more. But what about where to live? If you aren’t tied to a specific city or town, you might be interested in moving to a new place to start entirely fresh. Here are the top places to buy a home in the UK that you shouldn’t miss out on.
This luscious and unique county in the north of England is home to some of the most stunning scenery in the form of rolling hills, low dry stone walls and unique towns and villages strewn across an emerald green backdrop. With historic sights to see such as the Shambles street in York along with the birthplace of Guy Fawkes, the impressive York Minster and beautiful towns such as Knaresborough, Grassington and Harrogate, it’s no wonder so many people love living in Yorkshire. For great connections, York has it all, but you can find great places for less in the likes of Doncaster or Skipton.
This gorgeous southern county on the border with Somerset, Dorset and Hampshire is home to beautiful villages set amid rolling green hills with truly interesting historical sites to explore. Visit the white horses of Wiltshire on a day trip outing around Pewsey, Alton Barnes, Cherhill and Devizes or head to Salisbury to visit the cathedral with the highest spire in the UK. Stop for lunch and a pint at Salisbury’s oldest pub, the Haunch of Venison, dating from around 1200. Homes here are cheaper in the likes of Devizes, Pewsey and Marlborough but you can get some truly stunning places in Salisbury and some of the villages like Lacock.
When it comes to houses for sale in Cornwall, many people want to live the high life in small coastal towns like Tintagel, St Agnes or St Ives. While these are great spots, it’s likely you’ll pay a premium, especially in St Ives and especially for property with views overlooking beaches, bays and the sea in general. If you want to live in Cornwall without paying high seaside prices, consider living more inland in the likes of Truro, Bolventor, Launceston, St Austell or if you want something potentially cheaper on the water, try Plymouth.
So there you have a couple of great suggestions on places to live in the UK if you want to start over somewhere totally new and different. With so many great places available all over the country, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Where will you move to next?
