In Plymouth they are building the 'next Poundbury', called Sherford. I love these developments. I love the fact that some people care about how homes, villages, towns, look.

Like all reasonably sized cities, it has good and rough areas, but with rather more of the rough than the other city in Devon, Exeter. The dockland/naval services areas are probably best avoided.
Being about an hour further from most other places than Exeter, it's the slightly poor relation in a similar way that Swansea is to Cardiff.
Nice countryside all around and (I'll say it quietly) Cornish coves and beaches aren't far either!
Edit: Dampish but warmer than 'Oop norf ' in the winter.

Unfortunately, my wife & I aren't great fans of Poundbury's architecture. We've always referred to it as 'Trumpton!'
