What kind of country dweller do you think you are
During the pandemic there was a trend for homeowners to flee the cities and head for the hills; it was hard to envisage the return of a traditional nine-to-five office lifestyle. While things are returning to some kind of normality, there is a large group of home owners who are considering a move away from the city who had perhaps seen this as something that would happen further down the line.
Rachel Johnston says “While there’s a strong desire to move out of the city, there’s also a fear of making the wrong choice of location.
“Choosing a category of rural is a good starting point, otherwise the choice is just too overwhelming. So the first question that needs answering is ‘what kind of country person do you think you are?’ There’s a world of difference between living in the middle of a field miles from anywhere, and living in a vibrant market town.”
