5 Reasons to Live Remote

Visitors to Cornwall often say that one day they’d love to come back to live here. The sea air, the countryside, the close communities and fantastic culture lure people to get away from it all and live a remote life in the country. There are many things to consider, however rarely do we collectively sit back and admire the things that really make ‘living remote’ and getting away from it all one of the best decisions people make

Freedom to Build

It goes without saying that remote areas have more land and more space to extend and build. This option is great for people who want to develop and can imagine a dream home but need space to build it.


It can’t be underestimated how important outdoor space is to the human psyche. People don’t function well when there’s no outdoor space, and if you live in a remote area, your sense of well being is almost guaranteed to be higher...which leads us onto our next point...

Outdoor Air

Who has ever stood in a city and thought; ‘I need more of this smog!’ Again, many people in cities won’t admit to this, but having fresh unaffected air is so important when it comes to a general sense of well being and healthiness. Living in a remote area will give you this.

Recreational Activities

Although remote areas are quite often a world away from a choice of theatres, galleries, cinemas and nightlife, they come with their own activities. Sports are of course popular, but activities such as orienteering, rock climbing, sailing, paragliding and hiking are all things that can be done in the fresh air

Freelance Work

Tired of being a conventional office worker? Many people these days are tired of the 9-5, and it shows in the amount who are leaving the city and deciding to live a remote life. With fantastic internet connection almost everywhere (and with fibre-optic cable being rolled out across the country) it’s easier than ever to work and live remotely. There are now lots of different ways to make money.
