Who wouldn’t want to live in a home by the sea? Finding yourself hidden away somewhere remote or within one of the beautiful fishing villages, Cornwall offers endless views of which you will never tire of, but what other attributes are there to love about this county…
1. Food and Drink
Having a combination of local sources of both food and drink, Cornwall thrives due to using their very own delicious produce.

Cornwall caters for every pallet, by producing everything from Rose to still red and white as well as sparkling wines, there’s sure to be something for everyone. Having won awards dating back to 1993, Camel Valley has a wide international reputation for being one of the most esteemed vineyards in Cornwall and excelling in both Rose and White sparkling wines.
With over 250 miles of the most beautiful coastlines in the UK, we couldn’t not mention the beaches of Cornwall. Having over 300 across the county, there is plenty of spots to be discovered, walks to be walked and sights to be seen.
The North and South coastlines each have so much to give, with bright white sand covering the North coastlines and wind producing waves perfect for surfers, and with secluded fishing villages as well as picturesque woodlands and beaches, how could you possibly choose between these two stunning locations… we couldn’t!
3. Community spirit
There has always been so much said about the sense of community that Cornwall holds. With warmth and kindness taking a front seat, the people within the county merely live joyous lives in the surrounding of their idyllic hometown as a bonus.
