Hi - I'm moving out of London to East Devon soon and was hoping to hear from other mums living in the area. Thinking about the Ottery St Mary area. Anyone got any hot tips about where to live and what life is like there for families? Feels like a big step with three children, so any help or ideas would be fantastic. Thanks

Hello! We’re looking to move from London to East Devon. What’s the view on Exmouth? Don’t hold back!

I really like the look of Exmouth, especially as it has a train station with half hourly trains into Exeter. I've been researching on line as I can't visit yet, and am worried about the flood risk. I've found the best place to check is the environmental agency, who include information on flood defences and monitoring stations. A friend has told me the River Otter can cause flooding. Sidmouth has the River Syd, but it's not as large as the Otter.
