Rightmove director Miles Shipside comments:
“As a nation obsessed with property, our homes represent far more than simple bricks and mortar. Rightmove’s Happy At Home Index looks to capture how the British public truly feels about ‘home’ and gives us a view of the happiest places in the UK as rated by those who know best – the people who live there”
The Happy At Home Index for 2013 found that Harrogate is the UK’s happiest place to call home, and that Northerners are overall happier where they live than Southerners. However, beyond these headlines, the HAHI also reveals individual stories for the 110 locations and 11 regions covered by the survey, as well as the 12 separate categories that the public were asked to rate.
