Having the idyllic Cornwall coastline on their doorstep is something Colin and Janet Walker have long dreamed of.

After many family holidays to the area, the couple, who have lived in Worcestershire for the past 15 years, wanted to return to enjoy their retirement.

So purchasing a new three-bedroom detached property at Beech Grove Homes’ sought after Hawkers Reach development in Padstow proved too much to resist.

Not only is it within easy walking distance of the beach and picturesque coastal path, it provides easy access to shops, pubs and restaurants. All of which were on the couple’s wish list.

Mr Walker said: “The house location is ideal for our requirements as we can easily walk in and out of Padstow and dip in and out of the hustle and bustle when we want to.

“A new build property gives the benefit of minimising the maintenance required and allows us to enjoy the reasons for choosing Padstow in the first place.

“The houses at Hawkers Reach are built and finished to a very high specification, and are ideally located both in terms of scenery and also local facilities. Additionally, the road network means that this area of Cornwall is very easily accessible.

“In effect, once you have arrived at Hawkers Reach you don’t really need the facility of a car, especially if you plan to live in the house full-time.”

However, the move will allow the couple, who are originally from the North West, to split their time between Padstow and Shrawley, where they have a self-contained two-bedroom living space at the home of their daughter and her wife.

By purchasing at Hawkers Reach they will be able to enjoy both the Worcestershire countryside and the Cornish coast in equal measure.

Mr Walker, a retired supply chain manager, explained: “Padstow is an area my daughter and her wife love. They both especially enjoy fine food which is certainly on offer in Padstow.

“Our plan is to split our time equally between Padstow at our house, time in Shrawley with our family, including our young grandson, and also some limited time in the North West with other family and friends.”
