Nearly nine out of ten people living in the countryside in Yorkshire simply love where they live, but this is not the case with people who live in the cities, according to recent research.
One in five people living in Yorkshire's urban areas are unhappy with where they live as opposed to some 88 per cent of people living in the region's countryside, who are happy with their home and environment.
Researchers found that people living in the countryside were content and satisfied with the quality of life. Overall they had no complaints about cost of living, environment, health, economy and education in the area where they lived.
"It's great to see people living in the countryside enjoy it so much they're prepared to declare their love for it. Busy cities may have an abundance of amenities and vibrant high streets to offer, but this is clearly no match for the fresh air, outdoor pursuits and community spirit cherished by those who live in the countryside."
