Why You Should Buy or Build in Wingham, Ontario

Building Your Home


Are you looking for a great location to have your cottage? Are you retiring soon and want something peaceful to wake up to every day? Do you just want to get out of the city? Wingham, Ontario is a fantastic place to settle. Why? Let us explain.

Small Town Living

Wingham, Ontario is a small town located in Huron County with a population of less than 5,000 people. Its picturesque location makes it a prime example of small town living, with numerous local businesses and shops around the town, unique architecture, and friendly residents. The small town vibe helps make Wingham an ideal location for a cottage, as most people are looking for a quiet atmosphere rather than the hustle and bustle of the city when they are purchasing or building a cottage. Small towns also make for great places to retire, since they are often calming on the psyche and daily routine.

Access to the City

Do you not want to give up the city entirely? Wingham, Ontario is less than three hours away from Toronto, and only about an hour away from Kitchener – Waterloo. This allows you to take advantage of a quiet life in Wingham, but still maintain a connection to a major city for shopping, nightlife, major cultural festivals, and other city activities. While small towns may offer a quiet life, not all of them are in a prime location like Wingham, and often cut off convenient access to the city.

Escape From the Urban

Do you live your whole life in the city? Many people live in major metropolitan areas like Toronto for most of their life, often as a result of the opportunities in their chosen area of employment. However, living in the city can also overwhelm people, which is why many city dwellers look for relaxing overseas vacations or quiet towns for a cottage. Wingham, Ontario, provides a perfect location to act as an escape from the busy nature of city life. The best way to maximize the benefits of small town living would be to live there all the time. However, even building or purchasing a cottage for long weekend getaways and vacations in the summer months allows individuals to recharge their batteries by escaping urban life temporarily.

Breathe in the Parks

Wingham is also home to multiple gorgeous parks, offering nature just outside your door. These parks offer great natural spaces for a daily walk or jog, open spaces for children to play, and gorgeous options for picnics on sunny days. A few of these parks are also located by a river, allowing park visitors to take advantage of the best of both land and water. Perhaps your young one will want to feed the ducks! In Wingham, you have that option should you purchase or build a home or cottage here.
