We have lived in Chopwell now for 8 years and have loved every minute of it. The only reason we moved here was you get more for your money when buying property than other local places. We were not sure about the area at first but it's been the best move we have ever made. The houses are well made and sturdy because they were built for the miners and their managers in their day. The views are outstanding and within 5 minutes of leaving home you have wonderful country scenery, where else would you get this natural beauty on your doorstep? It's now an up and coming area so in the future and after the regeneration, house prices here will rocket. The only real bad problems are the shopping area could do with a good tidy up, and now shops are being turned into private houses. The main street should be revamped to make it look better and more inviting to outsiders. As for the people we found that everyone speaks and acknowledges you, yes its only a small village and has a community feeling about it but we have never had any problems whatsoever.

Whether you find a place to be populated with friendly people mainly depends on YOU. I have lived all over the country from the far South West to the North East, in cities and in the remote country. Frankly if you are friendly then people will be friendly to you. This is true all over the country.
I have found the people in Chopwell to be very friendly - so much so that I came back to live here a second time round.
The place - a little run down in parts but with lots of investment planned in the public areas and a considerable amount of new investment in the housing over the last few years this is a town that is really on the up - though slower with the onset of the latest economic depression.
