    I would love to be your neighbour @Hostafan1, but I have always thought Devon was a bit crowded.
    The South is a bit crowded, near the coast is too, but get up here to the north and get inland a bit, heaven!!

    Ask @Lyn and @Dovefromabove, from my garden I can see Dartmoor, 25 miles  to the East , Brentor 35 miles to the South and Bodmin about 40 miles to the West and I can't see a single house, yet only 10 miles inland from Bude

    What would 3 bedrooms and an acre of land be in your area @Hostafan1. Preferably an older house.
    Walk out to winter, swear I'll be there.
    Chill will wake you, high and dry
    You'll wonder why.

    It's quiet here, too. I can see Exmoor from my windows, Dartmoor and the Quantocks from the top of the hill. We're a bit less than 15 miles from the North Coast. I can see the house next door, but no one else.
    Devon's a big county and most of it isn't much like Torquay

    Hello @Hostafan1 :) I've been stupidly busy working. All a bit mad really, but it's good to be busy and not having to go out at all. We walk the dogs and rarely see a soul, OH is mostly doing the shopping. I think I've been 'out' - i.e. in the car - 3 times since lockdown began - once to go to Waitrose, once to the village and once to get some dog food.

    In order to restore the balance, I am curmudgeonly about the idiots I see on TV. The worst we've had here has been a motocross event a couple of weekends ago. Noise and rubbish and plastic tape all over the woods. But at least they're easy to avoid.

    Brace yourself the grockles are due to descend this weekend.
