Great Reasons to Escape the City and Move to the Countryside

Picking a location to live with your family is an important and difficult decision to make. Not only do you have to worry about your own well-being, but you also need to worry about your children and their future. However, if you plan to have a child in the future and build a family together with your partner, then it’s a good idea to consider your options now if you want to move later on.


But have you ever considered a move to the country? It’s something more and more parents are doing due to the amazing benefits that it offers. So to give you a little idea of what it’s like to live in the countryside, here are a few tips that may just convince you.

Tighter Community

If you live in a city, then it’s not unusual to pass by someone and not wave at them or say hello. After all, you’ll probably never see them again and they’re just a passing face like the hundreds of others that you see in a day. If that’s the case, then why would you even bother creating a sense of community with your neighbours or store owners? City life is busy and no one has time to converse outside of their workplace or at home, so why bother?

The countryside is nothing like that. When you move to a rural area, there are fewer people and you’ll see the same faces over and over again, making it easy for you to form friendships with the locals. This is a huge advantage because it’s easier to build trust in your neighbours, meaning you’ll have an easy time asking them to look after your children and your children will also have an easier time making friends.

Plenty of Choices

Cities are cramped and, as a result, houses are expensive, small and feel like they’ve been cut and pasted because they look almost identical. Unlike city homes, country homes are much larger, more personalised and look fantastic. They usually all come with huge gardens or plots of land, there is plenty of space for all of your belongings and hobbies, and your children will have a lot of space to play.

This makes it incredibly easy for your home removalist to pick up your belongings, drive over to your new location and help you set up all of your furniture. With large open doors, houses instead of apartments and plenty of storage space, it’s easy to get settled into your new home.

The Healthy Choice

It should come as no surprise to you that living in the countryside is far healthier than living in a cramped smog-filled city. The air is clean and fresh, there are more places to explore and exercise, and there is almost no noise pollution to give you a headache. Due to the reduced amount of dust and pollution, your children are also less likely to develop allergies while they are growing up.

If you care about your own health as well as your children, then moving to the countryside is the only healthy choice that you should consider.
