Life in Cornwall

We love Cornwall.  We believe it is one of the best places in the world to live and work – and to bring up children.


The stunning landscape and variety of places to live – from cairn to cove – means that you can enjoy a healthy and relaxed lifestyle with fantastic outdoor opportunities.  The rich heritage and vibrant culture means there is always a lot to do.

Cornwall offers a wonderful start in life for children.  Most infants and primary schools are small and local.  We can compete with the best in secondary education and excel in post-16 college education.  We have a highly-rated university in Falmouth and access to the best universities in the South West.
