“This is our first visit to the area, we absolutely love it and want to relocate our family”
“We have spent holidays here for years and have decided we want to live here permanently and find our ‘forever home’”
“We moved away to the city when we were younger but now we have our own children we want to come back and give them a more rural upbringing”
All scenarios we hear time and again at W&H Property Office. Just a few of the many reasons people are choosing a rural lifestyle over urban living.
Science shows rural living is beneficial to our physical and mental health and although urban living does have its own benefits, the cleaner air, closeness to nature and overall ‘feel good factor’ of the countryside makes it very appealing.
We have properties listed in many of Dumfries & Galloway’s accessible rural and semi-rural areas. All of which benefit from quality local schools with comparatively modest school rolls. School bus services from outlying areas help make rural living possible for busy families.
Quality of life and a good work/life balance are probably the main lures of rural living. The great outdoors and all it offers is a major pull for those considering making the move to a more rural location. In Dumfries & Galloway you will be spoiled for choice whether you enjoy the equestrian life, play golf, like to cycle or hike, even if water sports are your thing, they can all be found in our stunning region. Not forgetting of course our wonderful beaches which are never too far away no matter where you choose to settle.
A sense of community is another major draw for purchasers. Our small towns and villages are extremely pro-active, organising many wonderful events throughout the year, all of which enrich the lives of those who live here as well as entertaining our many visitors.
Here at W&H we have a wide range of properties to help you fulfil your dream move to rural/semi-rural living.
