5 Brilliant Reasons to Buy a House in Newark
If you're considering whether to buy a house in Newark, and you're not sure if it's the place for you, then this post is a must-read! A town that is jam-packed full of history, culture and local colour, we believe that Newark is a real hidden treasure. Here are just 5 of the many reasons to live there...
1) Easy access to the city and countryside
As far back as the 1600's, Charles I chose Newark as a royalist stronghold because of its strong strategic position. Today, people are still drawn to the market town because of its location. With great rail and road connections, commuting is a breeze, while also being close enough to some beautiful countryside to offer a great mix of city living and rural charm.
The A1 is close at hand and London is only an hour or so away by train, so Newark is definitely well placed for people who want to work in the city during the week and play in the countryside at the weekends.
2) Outstanding schools
Other fantastic schools can also be found in nearby Southwell, Lincoln and Nottingham.
3) It's the happiest town in the East Midlands!
At least it was according to the Happy at Home survey conducted in 2017 by Rightmove... The survey was answered by 17,000 people across the UK and factored in things like community, safety, amenities and cost of living.
