Home to some of the most stunning scenery and coastline in the British Isles, the West Country is a wonderful place to live, work and bring up a family.

It’s a region that’s full of contrasts – long stretches of golden beaches and small smugglers’ coves, historic cities and villages tucked away in the countryside, windswept moorland and magical woodland. It’s little surprise much of it is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty.

It’s made for those who love getting out into fresh air. The rugged National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor provide panoramic vistas and limitless opportunities for horse riding, biking and trekking. Meanwhile the stunning coastline of Devon and Cornwall is heaven for those who love swimming, sailing, surfing, canoeing, climbing and diving. The celebrated South West Coast Path combines a rich variety of terrains and breathtaking views. And if you prefer more sedate leisure activities, there’s plenty of opportunity for sunbathing and an ice cream!

Beautiful though the countryside and coastline are, there’s so much more to this area than the great outdoors. You’ll discover two university cities, theatres, museums, art galleries and excellent shopping, from designer labels and high street favourites, to a fiercely independent food movement that celebrates the region’s high quality meat, cheese, cider and beer.

The West Country consistently rates as one of the best places to live and work in the UK, with a wealth of great schools and universities, as well as successful industries, companies and organisations. Many major businesses, including the Met Office, have recognised the advantages of the region and chosen to relocate.

Links with the rest of the country have improved dramatically over the past years with substantial investment in air, road and rail – allowing more people to take advantage of the region’s beautiful scenery and wide-ranging business and leisure opportunities.
