South Lakes/North Lancs.

London, if I was rich

unclebumpkin Thu 08-Jan-15 16:00:48

just wondered where's nice and it is a big country

chockbic Thu 08-Jan-15 16:03:37

Devon or Cornwall, by the sea.

unclebumpkin Thu 08-Jan-15 16:05:14

yes it is nice down there...

Devon, in an old cottage by the sea. We used to holiday there when I was a child and it's just lovely so relaxed.
Oh also for the clotted cream and the fudge smile

I'm not sure I'd move, tbh.

We live in Glasgow and love it here.

Might move back to the Outer Hebrides where we used to live.

I don't think I'd choose to leave Scotland.

Right here - or to be fair probably down the road a bit where its closer to the tube.

We recently visited Chester, I was quite blown away by it and the surrounding countryside. Thought it was a very lovely area.

Close enough to London for DH to commute, but far enough away so we could have 10acres and have a hobby farm, with room for PIL in a separate cottage.

I live in Surrey,but feel very at home in Bath.

Right where I do live - lovely town in Hertfordshire, easy to get to London where I work & spend a lot of leisure time. If money was no object I'd also buy a beautiful townhouse slap bang in the centre of Edinburgh. And a weekend home in Munich.

Dulwich Village in London. Nice community feel but near enough the centre to take advantage of everything on offer.

If I was single or DD was older and money was no object I'd live right in the centre of London here grin

I liked Ross on Wye & surrounding (Uber rural) areas. Also Cheltenham. Or Pembrookeshire.

Stillwishihadabs Thu 08-Jan-15 16:25:45

House in South Ken and a sea view cottage in Perranporth.

unclebumpkin Thu 08-Jan-15 16:26:56

am thinking of moving - but the only criteria thus far i have is probably this country...

guess i need to cut things down a bit somehow...

unclebumpkin Thu 08-Jan-15 16:28:12

quite like the idea of being near some nice countryside, i guess...

Back to Devon. Moved away a few years go and have major regrets because I MISS IT.

mothermirth Thu 08-Jan-15 16:39:32

Cornwall - West Penwith specifically wistful sigh

Besides nice countryside, what other criteria do you have?
