Re: Retirement move ?

Almost the whole of North Devon is hilly, but but if you go for somewhere in the Instow area thats pretty flat. Its on a tounge of land between the Taw and Torridge esturays Google earth gives a good idea of the lay of the land.
Most of the major chain shops are a few minutes away in Barnstaple, if you need them. J&A cameras are really nice guys.
And there is easy access to the Tarka Trail from there, which is a disused railway line - so fairly gently inclined for walking the mutts. If you see what looks like a soggy brown rug hurtle past its probobly mine.
As a sailorman, I get the privalige of living wherever I like, its only 6 comutes a year, and I am sure I made the right choice with North Devon.
