Bus Driver

Since moving to Devon from the Midlands last year, my life feels far less rushed. I’m doing pretty much the same job, but in much nicer surroundings.

In all honesty, I didn’t quite know what to expect when moving here; all I knew was that I loved the Dawlish area from previous summer holidays, and I desperately wanted to live near the coast. What I’ve found is that people here are really friendly and helpful, and my quality of life has definitely been given a boost!

Bus Driver

I’d visited Devon on holidays a few times before, and decided it would be a great place to live full time. People here are friendlier and more sociable – there’s always time for a chat. Life in general is so much more pleasant here, and it feels safer somehow.

Although my work is essentially the same as before, the environment in which I do it is beyond comparison. The clean, fresh air and general scenery really has helped give me a new perspective on life.

Consultant

We looked at a lot of houses before moving our consultancy business to Devon and fell in love with one in the Doone Valley. With today’s technology, it’s possible to work almost anywhere as a consultant, meaning Devon is no longer just a beautiful holiday destination, but a real option for relocating. I believe our location can be a great advantage, and we’ll start to bring teams of people from London to Devon to do effective work in a stress-free environment.

The move has been great for us: we still work with major clients all over the UK and Europe, but get to come home and fish from our back door, or walk up the hill and be on Exmoor. We love walking and have now taken up surfing and golfing too.

The locals have made us feel really welcome and our friends and family make more of an effort to come and see us, so everyone wins!

Line Manager

When I decided to move, I expected Devon would offer a less stressful commute to work every day – but I ended up getting so much more than I imagined.

Living by the sea with this amazing, diverse scenery has improved my quality of life enormously. I just feel so much happier and relaxed being in this place where there’s so much to see and do. People are more sociable and friendly here, and there’s such a strong community feel to the place – it’s unlike anywhere I’ve been since my childhood.

Every day I drive home from work, I feel like I’m on holiday!

Thomas' Story

Manager

After working in Derbyshire and then London, I decided to move to Devon with my wife and young child to find a better quality of life. That was over 15 years ago.

We found that although pay is less, so is property, and the standard of living is higher – and you really can’t put a price on that.

I’d visited Devon a few times on holiday before deciding to move. It offers a unique environment; friendly people who see Devon as ‘their’ county, as something to be proud of. Towns and villages here have a real sense of community.

But for me, the best thing about living here is being so close to both the moors and the sea. I really feel we have room to breathe.

Move to Devon, and take the opportunity to change your perspective on what matters in your life.
