Lockdown has given people time to consider their next move in life, while others have been forced to make a change due to rising unemployment.
Reflecting on the next move, many people agree – over various social networks – that quality of life is a top priority. Picking a happy place to settle down is, therefore, higher up the agenda than ever before.
Moving out of a densely-populated area and into a newly-developed area is a real opportunity where you really can have it all. Working from home in a house with a garden that’s near the countryside and activities is the new search criteria for people.
So, what are the choices for working professionals considering relocating to Lincolnshire? Here are just 4 of our top spots…
Home to a spectacular cathedral and independent stores down bustling cobbled streets, Lincoln offers the perfect mix of rich history and vibrancy.
