Overton in Top 20 UK places to work from home

A new survey from The Daily Mail has placed Overton as one of the UK’s best places to work from home.

Overton was included with 19 other UK locations which analysed criteria such as house prices, internet connection and accessibility.

The article published on Tuesday July 2nd said since Covid people’s needs had changed and people working from home need benefits such as “a gastro pub, attractive scenery, fast wi-fi and reasonable proximity to a town or city”.

The Daily Mail article said, “With its broad high street and good selection of shops, Overton has the feel of a town in miniature.

“There has been an influx of young incomers recently, attracted by the good communications and the proximity of great walks on White Hill, the model for Watership Down.

“Don’t mention neighbouring Whitchurch to old-timers – the villages have been bickering for years”.

“Sample the warm welcome in the pretty Red Lion, which also offers god pub food a few times a week. Amore (Italian) and Redfort (Indian) are also worth visiting.

“Overton has a small town vibe, with a big village welcome”.
