With bracing sea air, gorgeous beaches, pretty countryside and thriving coastal towns, Cornwall has a great deal to offer people in their retirement. Housebuilders targeting the over 50s market have spotted Cornwall's potential, and there is currently a fantastic choice of retirement homes spanning the county.
The South West of England offers some of the country's finest beaches and coastal scenery. Buyers in the region currently have an excellent choice of new homes in and around some of the top seaside resorts - whether they are looking for starter homes, family homes or retirement apartments.
A home on the coast has always been a popular retirement choice, promising a relaxed way of life with fresh sea air and strolls along the promenade. Cornwall and Devon are obvious choices for a coastal retirement in the south of England, with plenty of options for new-build retirement homes in both counties.
