Live a simpler way of life in Essex
When people think of Essex, they can often misrepresent it in their
own minds, thanks to the popularity of TV shows such as
Footballer's Wives and The Only Way is Essex, which depict
residents of the county as being covered in fake tan and peroxide
However, there are many areas of Essex which are a far cry from
that seen in the mainstream, and could be perfect settings to bring
up the family.
One such area can be found easily by those who are in the market
property for sale in Great Wakering. This settlement is a
small, historical and picturesque little village set on the
county's coast, near to Southend, which offers all that a family
may be looking for in a new venue.
One of the most important things for any family when they are
transferring to a new area will be how good the schools are. Great
Wakering itself has just one school, but it is one that will help
kids find new friends from their little rural village.
When kids get to high school age, they will need to transfer to
school in Southend, but the bus links over the four-mile stretch
between the two will be ideal to giving you peace of mind that your
kids are safe and on time for their lessons each day.
There will also be much to do for the adults in the village, as
Great Wakering is home to a small pub and a few shops which means
people can have the chance to live their whole life there without
having to travel to large neighbouring towns.
And when it comes to spending time together, families can take a
wander on the nearby beach, as long as the Ministry of Defence are
not closing it off for target practice, where kids can find old
pieces of military memorabilia, which may spark a wide interest in
all things historical.
