I really like living by the coast. At the moment I’m a two minute walk away from the beach which is absolutely fantastic. It’s so relaxing and you can go there straight from work, walk along the seafront and just hear the sea. It’s amazing. It’s also great for my family. My children have flourished since moving here and there is so much for them to do. It’s definitely a great place for a family to live. I love it.
