Moving to the area

Devon and Cornwall are packed with possibilities;  the history-rich Barbican district, the grassy headlands of Plymouth Hoe, the stunning open countryside of Dartmoor and the captivating views of a boat-studded bay. Here are some of the reasons to move here…

Steeped in history

From a statue of Elizabethan explorer Sir Francis Drake to the Royal Citadel and Mayflower museum,  Plymouth is rich in history and remains a popular tourist destination, attracting large numbers of visitors every year.

The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to Saxon times and its history very much reflects its maritime location. 

Breathtaking Cornwall beaches

Cornwall is home to some of the finest beaches in the United Kingdom, with sand dunes and sunshine adorning an unspoilt coastline that draws in thousands every year. 

If you feel like having the sea on your doorstep, feel like a weekend surf or just want to walk along the golden sands, you’d be moving to the right place.
