Anyone who is looking to move home in 2022 has a lot to consider. You need to focus on your budget, and what you can afford to buy. You should also consider elements such as transport hubs, and if you have a family, you need to consider the standard and availability of local schools.
However, at Austin Property Services, we think people need to focus on other matters too. It is crucial you feel at home in your surroundings, and this is why you need to find a nice place to live.
We believe Bridport is a good place to live, and we are not alone in believing this.
Bridport is recognised as a good place to live
On more than one occasion, Bridport has ranked extremely highly on the Sunday Times list of the best places to live in Britain.
The evaluation process for the list considers a wide range of factors including jobs and the local economy, schools, broadband speed, local shops, the sense of community spirit, and even the level of culture on offer in the local area.
The fact that Bridport consistently scores well in this analysis is a great endorsement of the local area.
