    Hi all,

    looks like this could be happening, – know nothing about the area but looking for family kind of area around a 15mile radius of Roborough I guess.

    Any thoughts?!

    Ummm……Plymouth 😈

    Sorry, couldn’t resist!

    It’s nice north of the city, going out towards Yelverton.

    Dammit – beaten to it!

    Have you considered Cornwall? Just across the river & not Plymouth..

    Well to be honest I was thinking Saltash area, depends why you’re moving that way tho.

    Saltash seems to be getting good reviews- any idea on Schools- need a grammar and primary

    Saltash? Armpit of cornwall…

    Where you working? Traffic from rogborough through to a38 both directions is a shit. If your north of the airport then you’ll want to be living north (tavi, yelverton etc)

    I live in tavi and if I have to work in Plymouth and time it wrong the 12 miles can take an hour easily.

    working roborogh I think – ideally want to be in a 15mile radi

    thought salt ash was okay!- where else then? – Tavistock/yelverton any cop?

    Saltash isn’t that bad, just the wrong side of the river.

    Yelverton is an odd place, no real centre to it. Tavistock is a nice moorsy market town but not for everyone. Plenty of good riding round here though.

    Mate of mine lives HERE & its really nice, quiet & you’ve got good riding from the door.
    He previously lived in Mannamead just north of Mutley plain – that was a nice area as well – not heard good things about Saltash though 😕

    I would recommend Tamerton Foliot. Just a few minutes from Roborough via the back lane and easy riding onto Dartmoor it has a villagey feel but also easy to get into Plymouth (if you really must).

    There are some nice places in Derriford & Glenholt and an easy commute to work. Probably avoid the areas of Efford, Swilly/North Prospect, Whitleigh & Southway though.

    If you want somewhere more rural then there is Bickleigh, Shaugh Prior & the small villages outside of Plymouth, great access to Dartmoor for riding but the commute into Plymouth can be a PITA.

    PS Dartmoor IMHO is not Fat bike territory 😕

    Worked down there for a few years and stayed out near Spriddlestone.
    I really liked it and cycled in to Devenport most days.
