Cornwall.....

Well, I dont live near either, however like my brother says, get past Bristol through into Somerset and head further south west and its like another england seriously, if your life is that messed up where you are, then it would be perfect for a new peaceful fresh start in somewhere in england that is unspoiled from the "progress" seen in the rest of the rat race of england......

So I definitely think cornwall....make a fresh start in the New Year..

Happy New Year to you.

Cornwall is lovely i go every year =) padstow is the best

Low wages, poor job prospects, no (ish) public transport, useless council frittered away all the Objective One money, tourists filling the place when the weather is half way decent, highest water rates, highest energy charges, poor further education, poorish NHS - despite the age structure of the residents, clean air, beautiful but largely inaccessible countryside, beaches, Atlantic,gales, a bit soggy,warmer than the rest of the UK, lovely gardens, good but expensive local produce, fish.
On balance, I'd stay where you are and visit ( like everyone else) when it's nice.

Oh, I live in N Cornwall.;-)
Do not even start to think that it is free from social problems - it is not.

I'll second that. I used to go abroad on holiday, but now I choose to go to both Devon and Cornwall as its lovely down there.

Seconded. From experience. Do not leave civilisation to go & live in Cornwall. Please.

I think OP may have copped the wrong 2 people here eh Chesso??

Seriously, if you need to move away, consider any other options you might have. Moving out of Cornwall recently was the best move my family & I have made.

EDIT- oh and Chesso - you forgot - over-priced Pasties me ansome!!

Cornwall is largely split into 2 parts demographically.

The 'tourist' places - Newquay, Padstow, Penzance, Truro, to name a few. All these places have mostly seasonal employment and all the other 'qualities' Chesso mentioned previously. I lived in Newquay for 5 years.

The rest is rural/out in the sticks. Again, described rather well by Chesso.

There is also the Redruth/Camborne area which is not to everyone's taste because some parts are industrial & tbh a bit run-down.

The schools aren't great- my eldest daughter was doing well at school up North but her general standard of education declined in Cornwall. The NHS services aren't too hot - no dentists & Truro hospital is the main hospital upon which the whole county relies- We had a 26 mile round trip when my OH went into labour!! Through country lanes as well!!

In the winter its sometimes mild but often cold, wet & v.windy. In the summer it's warm but never 'hot'- especiall on the North Coast. Any nice days are plagued with tourists/posers/traffic jams.

The local people are pleasant enough but very hard to get to know. I'll probably get shot down here but again from experience, a lot of the folk down there can be selfish, a tad rude & despite the seaside guest house image, they do not like outsiders.

Trust me, a visit is nice but don't live there. I now live in Bournemouth which has got all the qualities of Cornwall but without the hassle.

You are so right!!

where abouts do you live? i have family down there, plus my mum and bro and sisters will be down there. I dont wanna move to a touristy bit cos hate all that but dont wanna be out in the sticks


Well Col, above, used to live Newquay way - I don't think that he'll mind me saying that - and I live N Cornwall, above Launceston.
There are only touristy bits, run down bits and out in the sticks - that's it!!
Well, it might be OK in Truro; a friend moved there a year ago and loves it.
Remember how there wasn't very much to do on holiday but it was fine while the weather was good??

Last place on earth to retire to. The most expensive part of the UK to live - petrol, supermarket prices, council tax .......... etc I'll be moving to where I can get to a hospital, supermarket, medical centre and some sort of place where they cater for the needs of older people when the time comes. My nearest proper hospital is 45 miles away!!
#11
Col's completely right in his second post as well!! The education is hopeless.

If you don't like Bath, you're going to hate Cornwall. Go back up north where they speak the same as you.

oh what to do!!!! thing is do i choose to go with my family and start again? if i dont work out i can always move back to ne but that means moving again, not keen on bath lived here for 2 years a while back and couldnt wait to move!!


Come to sunny Bournemouth.

Warmer weather, more jobs, prospects, excellent hospitals, supermarkets, great for kids, good schools, fantastic beaches, nightlife etc etc.

Like anywhere, it has it's problems but the good far outweighs the bad.

Same can't be said of Cornwall at the moment because of the way it's being run, or not being run as the case may be. Hopefully, cornwall will turn around because geographically it's a beautiful place, but until there's a major change in the mentality of the powers that be down tere, I can't see any hope or scope for improvement.

I reckon they should stick thee & me in charge of pastyland Chesso.

We would sort the place out in no time!!!

You're tempting me!!

Yes, pastyland could do with a darn good shake - must learn Cornish - ??? - first though.

I'm off to bed but hope that your NYE event went excellently.:thumbsup:
