    This is our local beach, 15 minutes walk. Also cheddar valley cider is deceitful. Tastes like squash, but you get ****ed very quickly!!!!

    You people are nuts. Someone come save me. In return I will give you all the pasties in the land (I don't like them anyway).

    I've debated doing this myself but am unsure of whether I'd get work...

    Many network engineering /Unix/net management jobs there?

    Doesn't matter if you have enough equity to trade up and can survive on a modest wage tbh.

    Well my update on post 57 is that we have made it not to redruth but st breward ,right next to the start of the camel trail.
    Still commuting from yorkshire but im staying down there for good in 2 weeks ,just need a job now but we managed to buy cash and tbh the bills seem cheaper.
    Find the blackness at night and total silence a big contrast and i just love it so far
    .summers going to be great ,cycling to padstow surfing at polzeath and walking on the moors

    Emmets, emmets everywhere :p Introducing your foreign genes to our pool, I'll have ye know we're proud of our extra digits!

    I'd also like to apologise on behalf of us all for Camborne. Sadly nuking it from orbit was not approved at the last council meeting.

    My brother did exactly the same thing recently. Gave up a well paid job, living near Bath working all over the place and moved to a lovely Cornish town called Pensilva, absolutely loves it there and wishes he had done it sooner, kids and wife also love it equally as much.
