Cheapest Places To Move To In The UK
It goes without saying that Christmas is one of the most expensive times of the year, and with January sales leaving you a little light in the purse, now is the perfect time to explore where the cheapest places to live in the UK are.
Whether you’re looking to make a big move or are just curious at where might be the best fit for you, we’ve got a list to help. Of course, everyone’s income, budgets and lifestyle are completely unique and can fluctuate hugely, so this list will just be looking at the actual cost of the areas and housing price, not taking into account these previous factors.
Bradford: With house prices coming in at around £40,000, Bradford was ranked high on the list of the cheapest places to purchase a property. Location-wise, it’s handy to live in as it isn’t too far from Leeds or the countryside, providing homeowners with the best of both worlds, all without the huge price tag of living in a metropolitan city.
Edinburgh: A recent poll revealed that Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is one of the cheapest place to move to, making it even better by having very happy homeowners. It’s no surprise really, given that Edinburgh is a hub of events and exciting activities, such as Edinburgh Fringe which attracts people from all over. It’s also steeped in a rich history, giving anyone who lives there a lot to appreciate.
Winkleigh: Although the price of around £150,000 for a two-bedroom place is quite a considerable difference to Bradford’s housing costs, for the area that it’s located, it’s definitely on the lower end of the price-range and could even be considered a bargain. The town of Winkleigh can be found in Devon and is close to the coast, with beautiful countryside to explore, so there’s lots fresh air to enjoy. It also has great primary schools
Burnley: This Lancashire town has some very reasonably priced houses which begin at around £40,000, much like the Bradford offering above. Burnley has some beautiful countryside surrounding it, so it’s definitely a sensible option if you’re a fan of the great outdoors. It also has a few excellent shopping outlets, providing any homeowner in this area with plenty of options for something to do.
Pendle: Another town which offers very affordable housing is Pendle, also situated in Lancashire. House prices start at around £40,000, which isn’t all that surprising considering how close it is to Burnley. It has lovely countryside too, as well as Pendle Walking and Cycling Festivals, so there is plenty to do.
