relocating to Cornwall
For most people it is a dream, and something that they talk to their friends about when they return from Cornwall. But for many, it can become a plan and a reality to move to Cornwall. Despite the media publishing that the house prices in Cornwall are expensive. The average sale price in August 2015 was £244,391 – far below the national UK average of £272,000. This figure takes into consideration of the price of a cottage in Flushing overlooking Falmouth’s Carrick Roads that will fetch more than £450,000 and incorporating Redruth and Camborne which will give you change for £120,000.
The lifestyle of Cornwall is what most people find so attractive. You have regular beach access, surfing, paddling or walking your favourite part of the 300 miles of coastal path around the beautiful coastlines of Cornwall. The oceanic climate means we rarely see the thermometer needle dip below freezing and the quality of the light – thanks to its peninsular position allowing the sun to reflect off the Atlantic Ocean, Celtic Sea and English Channel which surround us also proves a popular reason for a move from more landlocked darker parts of the UK. St Ives was recently named as the UK’s favourite place to live. However, the house prices in this beautiful busy harbour town reflect that popularity – and one thing that people need to consider when moving to Cornwall – is that there is a difference between top places to visit in Cornwall and top places to actually live.
