Rightmove's Happiest Places to Live in Dorset
Dorset’s happiest towns have been revealed in the results of a new study.
And it’s found that those living in coastal villages were the happiest group of people – unsurprisingly.
The research by Rightmove says feeling a sense of belonging and being able to be happy where they live.
Community spirit was even more important to people’s happiness this year, something perhaps brought about as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Happy at Home index, in its tenth year, was conducted among over 21,000 people across Great Britain, and asks residents how they feel about where they live, as well as asking them to rank ten happiness factors.
A third of this year’s top 20 happiest towns were market towns, typically being smaller towns with weekly markets bringing the local community together.
It also found – perhaps obviously to those of us who live close to the sea – that people living in a coastal village were the happiest of all, and those living in a coastal town or city were more likely to be happy in their area than someone living in a similar home inland.
