Net gain: John and Mary Peddicord live at Two Coves, near St Austell in Cornwall

A retired couple who moved into our new Two Coves development, near St Austell in Cornwall, were so delighted with the area that they have set up a website to spread the word.

Keen walkers John and Mary Peddicord had been looking for several years to move from Essex to a home on the Cornish coast, inspired by 10 years of happy holidays there.

They had originally been searching for homes and apartments along St Austell Bay but instead chose a five-bedroom house at Two Coves at Duporth with unique access to the beach.

In fact, they were so pleased with their new neighbourhood that they have put their skills as former IT developers to good use by launching to highlight the attractions of the area, with listings and a village forum.

Mary said: “As part of the Ramblers Association one thing that drew us to Two Coves was the location and everything it had to offer, it was the prettiest development I’ve ever seen. We want to foster a sense of community and celebrate all that is on our doorstep through our website."

Linden Homes South West sales director Brian Deacon said: “It’s not unusual for happy customers to show their appreciation, but the Peddicords must be among the most enthusiastic – and we’re delighted for them.”
