When we lived in our house in London we used to enjoy going on weekends to Devon and Cornwall. We liked being near the sea, we liked the countryside and we liked the people we met. We both worked from home quite often and on one of our trips we said ‘Why don’t we just live here?’ and neither of us could think of a good reason why not.
After a false start earlier in the year, we moved to Devon last month. We found some tenants on a long lease for our London house and we’re getting settled into a great little village. The major challenge now is to plan all the various work that needs doing on the house and garden, along with getting to know our neighbours and exploring the local area.
