Rutland named Britain’s third most desirable rural place to live
Rutland is Britain’s third most desirable rural place to live, according to a new survey.
The county came behind just South Oxfordshire and Chiltern in Buckinghamshire in the annual Halifax survey.
The analysis was based on factors including residents’ health, life expectancy, crime rate, weather, employment, school results, broadband and personal wellbeing.
Residents in Rutland are said to be in good health, have a high employment rate, benefit from a low amount of crime and enjoy less rainfall and more sunshine than the national average.
