As well as being arguably the most popular holiday destination in the UK, Cornwall is also one of the most desirable locations in which to live. With over 300 miles of dramatic coastline, captivating fishing harbours, spectacular beaches and stunning scenery, it may come as a surprise to learn that Anglo French Removals help many people relocate from Cornwall to France every year.
A natural playground for watersports enthusiasts, Cornwall’s unique geography and amazing beaches, rivers, lakes and estuaries offer the perfect environment for sailing, surfing, kayaking and boat trips. So whether you want to ride enormous waves at Fistral Beach in Newquay, go kayaking along the St Agnes coastline, enjoy a spot of leisure boating at Falmouth Haven or learn how to canoe on Cornwall’s local waterways, there’s something for every watersports enthusiast to get excited about. Cornwall is also home to several fantastic water parks and adventure centres, including Oasis Fun Pools, Waterworld and Retallack Aqua Park.
The gastronomic delights of French cuisine are one of the many attractions for people moving to France from Cornwall and other areas of the UK, but over the last few years the food scene in Cornwall has begun to rival that of London. The area now boasts a multitude of award-winning local food producers and superstar chefs who have helped to put Cornwall on the gourmet map, and the number of stellar restaurants and eateries - such as The Seafood Restaurant and The Wheel House springing up in the region continues to grow. And of course, who can resist the temptation of a hot Cornish pasty or a scoop of traditional Cornish ice cream?
Cornwall’s vibrant identity has evolved from its Celtic roots dating back over 3,000 years, and much of the area’s rich cultural history is still present in the region today. Much of the landscape of Cornwall and Devon was transformed in the 18th and early 19th centuries as a result of copper and tin mining, and UNESCO has bestowed World Heritage Site status on 10 industrial landscape areas in Cornwall that best reflect the mining traditions of its past. This rich history can be discovered by exploring museums, ancestral homes, castles and of course the Cornish Mining World Heritage Sites.
Each year thousands of Brits decide to up sticks and move to France, and the appeal of life in France is obvious. Lower property prices, generally warmer weather, amazing food and drink and the relaxed lifestyle are huge draws for people looking to start a new chapter of their lives in another country. But it's also easy to see why so many British ex-pats who want to move back to the UK pick Cornwall as their preferred destination, and here at Anglo French Removals we help people do both. We offer full removals to France, car and motorcycle transport and secure storage for your possessions - and we can even help with the packing if you wish!

Dear Mark and Stephanie,
I would like to let you know what an excellent job Rob and Jake did this afternoon. It was not an easy place to which to get their lorry and they had to carry things down to the front gate. But nothing phased them and they remained cheerful and professional. I will unhesitatingly recommend your firm to anyone needing transport to or from the UK.
With many thanks for your help.

We just wanted to say thank you for such a brilliant and seamless service. You will remember that your quotation came in at about 50% cheaper than the two bigger companies and obviously we were worried that would reflect in the service.
From your response time, to the lovely people we chatted to in Maidstone with our mutiple questions, letting us add to our load at no extra charge, to yesterday's experience when Nino and his mate arrived, everything has been quite brilliant.
They called us an hour before arrival and were both so cheery and obliging despite their obvious long drive and need to get to the next pick up. We had two different locations for our furniture plus we changed our minds a couple of times and literally nothing was too much trouble - Nino's manipulation of that giant blue monster around the tiny farm lanes was quite breathtaking!
Great job! Please thank your team.
Heather and David, Trèbes
I would just like to let you know how delighted I have been with Jay and his not so little helper on Wednesday 25/26th Feb and again this Morning.
I was impressed with their work ethic and attitude. They were polite and helpful and, boy can they pack a van!!
They are a credit to your company and good ambassadors too.
I would recommend Anglo French to any of my friends still out in France/Spain as you completed the task very professionally and efficiently.
Thank you, once again,
Anne Saville, Cornwall
