Living in Bedlington
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you're moving to will support you and your family, as well as being a pleasant place to live. So here's some useful information about the area around The Acres.
