    Best answer: In many countries it is common for people selling houses to give the number of square feet or square metres of floor space in a house. In the UK it is not so common to do this and consequently builders can keep squeezing down the area without people noticing until it has become ridiculous. There's plenty of room to build houses in Britain as a whole only about 10% of the country is built up and there is no shortage of space in Scotland.

    Best answer: Living standards are generally better away from bigger cities. I currently live in Shropshire which is a mainly rural county with very beautiful countryside. Crime rates are very low. I have a good train service to the rest of the country from Ludlow where I live, but bus services to outlying villages are in terrible decline. There is a small hospital in Ludlow and the local GPS are excellent but for serious medical emergencies you would need to be transported to Shrewsbury or Hereford which are some distance away. Other counties I would recommend are Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Surrey and West Sussex. The latter two have beautiful countryside but are also close to large cities.
