A New Start by the Seaside – What to Consider Before Moving Away

If you are feeling that you are stuck in a rut and are no longer happy with your life you have probably considered moving away. Many people fantasise about moving away, and many dream of living by the sea. Whether you are wanting a fresh start on your own or have children that you want to raise by the beach, moving to the seaside has an allure that many people dream of, but few actually think can be a reality. The sea has a calming and relaxing effect, and life tends to move a lot slower, particularly in rural locations such as Cornwall and Dorset.

Consider what you going to do about work – If you are not retired, or a multi-millionaire with no money worries, the chances are one of the main things that you are thinking about when it comes to moving is work. If you are currently in work, is there any way that you can move within the company to your chosen location? Many companies and organisations offer opportunities like this and will help with additional needs like providing an employee relocation company such as to take some of the stress out of the move, whilst giving you financial stability. If not, search for a new job in the area before you take the plunge. It may be a great opportunity for a completely new career!

Go and visit the area plenty of times – If you have your heart set on the area that you want to move to, but have only visited it on holiday for example travel there at a different time of year and stay for as long as you are able to, even if it means making a few journeys there to get a feel for the place when it is not just a holiday town. A lot of seaside locations are very different in the winter, and although some people may like this, many expect it to be the same as it is in the summer all year round. This can take a bit of getting used to, especially if you are used to the pace of life in a big city!
