Houses for sale in Plymouth perfect base for Devon and Cornwall

Houses for sale in Plymouth perfect base for Devon and Cornwall

House hunters looking to enjoy the best of the south west of England may want to consider property for sale in Plymouth.

The coastal city is said to be the perfect base for exploring the rest of Devon and Cornwall, as it lies directly in the middle of the two counties.

People investing in houses for sale in Plymouth can enjoy the natural beauty of the city itself, as well as the various attractions that are within easy reach.

Dartmoor National Park, north of the city, is a "dramatic expanse", according to Destination Plymouth.

The tourism body says the area is perfect for exploration on foot, on bike or even on horseback from one of Dartmoor's riding schools.

Duncan Currall, chair of Destination Plymouth, argues that the city lies in the heart of many natural attractions.

He explained: "Plymouth is surrounded on all sides by stunning natural coast, estuary and moorland environments to explore and enjoy."

Houses for sale in Plymouth are ideally located for those who want to spend the summer months in easy reach of traditional British seaside resorts.

"Further afield, the stunning beaches of South Devon - Bantham, Bigbury, Salcombe, Blackpool Sands - and the cathedral city of Exeter are less than one hour by car or rail," Mr Currall continued.

Cornwall is also accessible – residents can take a boat trip up the Tamar Estuary to explore the county's seaside villages.

Adding to the appeal of property for sale in Plymouth is the high standard of local services the city's residents benefit from. The 2010 MJ Achievement Awards named Plymouth's local authority as the Best Achieving Council of the Year.

Judges praised the council for its community leadership, the wide scale improvements made to the city and the pride created as a result. The council was said to have delivered an "unprecedented programme of change", making Plymouth a more desirable place to live.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800568957-ADNFCR
