Most of the development and retail businesses are south of the river though.
True. I guess the closest most rural area to Greenville is Stokes/Pactolus, which I'd only recommend if you don't need immediate access to anything - groceries, gas, etc. as Stokes is more of an area and not an organized small town. There a trip for groceries would be about a 15 minute ride to the store. If you want a trip to Walmart, that'll be 25-30 minutes. The organized small towns (Farmville, Tarboro, Washington, Ayden, Robersonville, Chocowinity, Vanceboro) have the basic amenities, so you could live near these towns and take a grocery store trip in five minutes. I don't know if Bethel has a grocery?

Bethel is going to have to under-go some serious changes before I'd recommend it to anybody.

I have to agree with some of the others here. I think Winterville is what you would be looking for. Winterville is a small town beside Greenville, most people dont even know that its a different town than Greenville. Much of the medical professionals live thee. Low cost of living, nice houses on larger lots, family oriented, LOW crime. But it definitely has some country type houses and a rural feel.
