Hi,
We are relocating our business and family to a village just outside of callington and would be grateful for any advice as we are coming from West Sussex.

We would like any advice on good schools (primary) villages to avoid, shopping etc ... or anything you may feel will help with our move.

Many thanks

Martin

What sort of business? That would have to be a factor in the decision surely?

Hi, We run a Internet Mobile Phone business which we will be running from a converted outbuilding of the place we are buying. We have been in touch with Cornwall Enterprise.

I think you will find it hard to discover a bad primary school in that area - so any will probably do. Most people send their children to their local community primary school. Transport links are poor so you don't want to add to congestion by taking the children further afield.
Equally the villages to avoid are probably the ones without a church, pub or shop. As that often indicates there isn't a large enough all year round community to sustain them. There is limited (but some good local suppilers)shopping in the market towns so aswell as Callington, you have Launceston and Liskeard in easy reach. Otherwise it is a trek across the border to England to either Plymouth or Exeter. Truro in Cornwall offers a good range of shops but in a smaller (and more pleasant) environment.

If you are moving to that part of Cornwall and are interested in getting involved in a sporting local success story check out the Cornish All Blacks Rugby team (alternatively the Cornish Pirates which are even more succesful but play further west in Truro). If football is your thing then Callington Town have a good community based club.

Or Plymouth Argyle, but of course they're English so shouldn't be mentioned on this site. For shopping of course you also have Tavistock, far better than Liskeard, Callington or Launceston, but it is in England so mention it quietly.

This sounds as if you have already bought the property, if so support whatever is your local school / village. You and your children will benefit from the community around you, having friends nearby, and you won't have to be always providing a taxi service as the kids get older.
