"Moving to the country has a venerable history in this country. The “sea change” is well-established, and the so-called “tree-change” is very popular too. But it has always been the preserve of wealthy retired people and artists/potters/poets. Most of us have to live in the city to work.

Or at least we did.

The coronavirus has shaken up the world of work and working from home now has proven doable for many jobs. It might be worth asking: is moving to the country actually plausible? Could we make it work? Imagine waking up to the sound of birds and opening your curtains to a view of trees, not electricity wires. It might be the best thing you ever do for our own wellbeing – and that’s backed by data."
