Wouldn't want to live anywhere else only perhaps to move to a slighter bigger bungalow, not to move away from the neighbours because they are real gems. We live in the most unspoilt, beautiful part of North Northumberland, I can go to the top of the village and look left and see Lindisfarne Castle, right and see Bamburgh Castle then turn around and see the beautiful Cheviots.
We have a first-rate medical practice and can generally get an appointment the same day, a wonderful young dentist, a Co-op which opens all hours, three pubs all for just over 1,000 friendly souls. In fact it is as good as or even better than God's county, and that's saying a lot ;o}
The only downside is the single-carriageway cart track with bends and blind corners, more commonly referred to as the A1. In summer it is impossible, it once took me 15 minutes just to cross it on my way to Seahouses, if it is not tractors it is caravans which turn the whole length into, what I call wagon trains, practically impossible to overtake, I could go on....
Like Mr Mistofelees, in West Somerset we live on the sea front with super views across the bay. Neighbours fine, Only con is it is a large ground floor flat with the attendant short comings. The upside is we are moving on Wednesday next in the same area to a very attractive chalet bungalow with ample space and our own front/back door and garden. The area is good, not the same view as we have now, but a super view overlooking Exmoor, so different, south facing and very nice. Everything is handy, shops, library, doctors, dentist and banks with plenty of good eating places all around us. Couldn't be better!
I cannot believe that anyone is really interested in whether I like where I live, unless they are thinking of moving here, any more than I am interested in whether or not other people like their own local area!
