Living in Fulford

A sustainable community

Fulford is on a mission to become a sustainable, self-sufficient village that minimises its environmental impact where possible. This has led to an array of activities, amenities and initiatives that the whole community can make the most of. If you want to spend some time outside moving about or need a project for all the family, there are community allotments available for rent - on which you can even keep bee hives!

There are also plenty of cycle routes in and around the village. It’s even a 15-minute bike ride from Fulford to York, ideal for greener, healthier commutes. There are volunteer schemes to help look after the colourful flowers dotted throughout the cobbled streets and walkways, as well as the Village Green. Initiatives like this are what make living in this village exciting - you come together with other residents to make a difference. These activities are also beneficial towards your mental health, helping you obtain a better quality of living.

An active lifestyle

But it’s not just your mental wellbeing that will benefit from buying a home in Fulford. Being a rural village along the river will do wonders for your physical health, too. We’ve already mentioned the cycle paths throughout the village leading to York and beyond, but that’s not all waiting for sports enthusiasts.
