Best Places to Live

  • Bude Sea Tide Pool Cornwall

    Best Places to Live: Bude

    Bude was Cornwall’s first proper tourist destination, the "Brighton of the West" until the railway line closed in the 1960s. Returning to former glory, the small friendly seaside town has plenty going on, decent schools and beautiful beaches within walking distance of the town centre. Top 200 Places to Live series.

  • lelant west cornwall golf course viewed from north quay hayle

    Best Places to Live: Lelant

  • Best Places to Live: Truro

    If you're after a stylish and relaxed lifestyle with plenty of shops but favour an urban location over coastal, Truro is the place for you. Part of our Top 200 Places to Live series.

  • Looe coastal town on the south coast of cornwall

    Best Places to Live: Looe

    A historic fishing village with serious charm, Looe is perfectly positioned for a commute to Plymouth whilst offering the benefits of a small community. Part of our Top 200 Places to Live series.

  • St Austell Clay country

    Best Places to Live: St Austell

    Often overlooked, what St Austell lacks in chocolate box cuteness it makes up for in good schools, reasonably priced property and urban essentials including a hospital - that said, the surrounding villages are beautiful, with prices to match. Part of our Top 200 Places to Live series.

  • Trevaunance Cove St Agnes viewed from Wheal Kitty Best Places to live in Cornwall

    Best Places to Live: St Agnes

    St Agnes (or Aggie to the locals) is a close knit but welcoming coastal community in the heart of Poldark country. You don't have to be surf mad to live here, but if you (or your kids) are, life centres round the excellent surfing beaches.

  • Best Places to Live: Penzance

    A bustling quirky harbourside town with a vibrant arts culture, Penzance offers seaside living at (relatively) affordable prices.

  • Best Places to Live: Wadebridge

    This old market town offers the best of all worlds - on the doorstep are some of Cornwall's most beautiful beaches, the town is full of thriving independent shops and property is still affordable - as well as being handy for the airport. Not all areas are pretty though, so choose carefully. Part of our Top 200 Places to Live series.
