Canadian couple seeking small home with far views

Ad ref# 16832903

ISO ideally a village location / small town / hamlet with far reaching views. Perhaps a delusion, but we imagine places from TV series like Midsomer Murders or Rosemary and Thyme but we are also aware that these are television series and may not be obtainable for us at our price point.

Hello, my partner and I have been living in the UK since October in beautiful Sidmouth. We arrived from Canada and have loved Devon. Our 6-month let is coming to an end as the homeowner is returning from Winter travels. We are open to ANYWHERE in the UK to live! Ideally we would like to be within 30 minutes of a town for work. Below, we will share our bio that we posted from Canada so you can get to know us better. Of course some of it is not relevant, such as wanting a cottage with a thatched roof - that would be great but we love anything in this area!

Hello,

My partner and I are excited about our upcoming move from Canada to the UK for a minimum of two years (Youth Mobility / Working Holiday visas - we are eligible to freely live and work in the UK) (with the option to extend our stay on work visas). We'll be available to arrive anytime after mid-September. We do have flexibility in our budget. We are looking to rent a private space for the two of us, something like a self contained annexe or small cottage. We are okay with paying for multiple months of rent upfront as well.

We're on the lookout for a private annexe or cottage to call home. Our location preferences are quite flexible, but we have a soft spot for small market towns or quaint villages, especially if they offer lovely views of the farms and hills in the countryside. My partner, who has a history degree, has always cherished the idea of living in an old cottage or stone home with a thatched roof.

I come from a childcare and early childhood education background (I also initially graduated from school from a business program along with my partner). My partner went back to school for his main passion, history, and has now finished his degree, graduating with First Class Honours. Together, we share an appreciation for exploring local culture and history.

We understand that arranging accommodation from afar might be challenging, but we hope our genuine enthusiasm and adaptability will open up some possibilities. We're quiet individuals, non-smokers, and not into partying or drugs. Occasionally, my partner enjoys a pint at a pub or inn, but aside from that, we mostly limit our drinks to restaurant outings.

Our main goal is to find a place where we can truly feel at home, especially as we look towards marriage and starting a family. Being part of a warm and welcoming community is essential to us. My partner, working as a historian for an Anglican church, has grown incredibly fond of the strong sense of community that his work has exposed us to.

In a perfect world, we imagine a beautiful stone cottage with views of rolling hillside farms, the wonderful palette of greens, the ability to see a storm roll in over the horizon, a small, friendly community that feels just as warm and inviting as the home does.

If you have any suitable properties or insights into potential areas, we'd be extremely grateful to hear from you. We promise to be responsible and respectful tenants, making the space our cozy haven during our time in the UK.

Thank you for taking the time to read our message. We're looking forward to the possibility of finding our dream home in England.
