I’m enjoying my early retirement living in Salisbury, a beautiful, medieval Cathedral City in the south of England.
It’s a very popular city that attracts a large number of visitors and tourists every year.
There are plenty of lovely places to visit within easy reach such as Bournemouth which is only 30 miles away.
The New Forest National Park in Hampshire is only 10 miles away and features some beautiful scenery as well as plenty of ponies and donkeys.
One of my favourite parts of the New Forest is Bolderwood, it has some wonderful walks and well as a deer sanctuary.
There’s also the village of Lyndhurst which is always very popular.
As you can see, the Cathedral City is in an ideal location and a very popular place to live.
It’s also proving to be a popular choice for people who are looking for retirement properties in Salisbury.
There is also a sheltered housing complex in Salisbury with rental properties for the over 55s called Hedley Davis Court
Retirement Living In Salisbury
I’ve recently been lucky enough to take early retirement after running a small business in Salisbury for a number of years.
I’ve also moved to a purpose built retirement apartment for the over 55s, close to Wilton Road. It’s within easy walking distance of the City and ideal for visiting the wonderful tourist attractions in Salisbury.
I’m very pleased to have had the opportunity to move here, it’s a quiet first floor flat in a lovely little housing complex.
It has some wonderful communal facilities and over looks a beautifully maintained garden.
There are also some very nice walks in the area including one known as Broken Bridges which runs through to Harnham.
Retirement Hobbies : Keeping My Mind Active
Keeping an active mind after retirement has been one of my main goals and finding enjoyable hobbies. I’ve always enjoyed writing so I decided to make a hobby of it and write a retirement blog.
I’m also an amateur radio enthusiast and am able to chat to a few other radio hams in the Salisbury area, via a DMR repeater. I don’t have room for any outside aerials at my new location but I can still listen to radio hams around the world via the Hack Green HF SDR.
Photography is another great interest and and I’ve been lucky enough to take some great wildlife photos. I usually use the camera on my Samsung phone but also have an older Nikon Coolpix L810 which works well.
I’ve set up an Instagram account for some of my latest photos.
