In 2016, the South West claimed 6 of the top 10 places to live in the UK, as voted for by the public. Dorset, Devon and Cornwall possess Britain’s most-loved beaches and natural beauty, and it’s understandably the UK’s no.1 holiday destination. But Bristol and Plymouth also offer cities that boast everything you’ll need in terms of jobs, shopping, nightlife and culture. That’s not forgetting Bath, a spectacularly pretty city.
