Following National Walking Month in May, several studies have shown the significant health benefits of adding walking into The British daily routine. A brisk walk of just over 20 minutes a day could help you live up to five years longer, help lower blood pressure, increase memory and lower levels of stress. Perfect for house hunters looking to reap the rewards of walking, ramblers will be in their element at Millwood Designer Homes’ exclusive development The Paddock in Ansty, West Sussex.
Situated on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Paddock enjoys stunning countryside views. The nearby village of Cuckfield is just over a mile away and offers residents all the necessary day-to-day amenities, as well as a large number of pretty public footpaths and river-side walks through ancient woodland.
Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “Keeping active is extremely important whatever your age and walking is considered one of the easiest forms of exercise you can do to make a difference. The Paddock is the perfect development for prospective buyers looking to live in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The South Downs offer a beautiful selection of walks, ideal for residents to make the most of the outdoors as we enter the warmer summer months.”
