Scilly 'best place to live for sunshine and warmth'


Real Homes magazine has picked the Isles of Scilly as its top choice for the best place to live for sunshine and warmth.

The islands were the best fit for the monthly magazine's criteria of 'a good balance between sunny days, mild temperatures throughout the year, and little extreme weather'.

The article reads: "The Isles of Scilly boast a temperate climate unusual for the UK, nestling in abundant sub-tropical vegetation that thrives due to the unusually warm winters (rarely below 10ºC). The slow pace of life here has tempted many people looking for a change - no town here is bigger than a Cornish village.

"St Mary's is our top choice, with its own airport, bank, and shops. It's not the cheapest place to buy property, with a flat costing an average of £250,000, and a detached property £460,000, but once you've seen this stunning corner of the UK, you'll see why it's a popular place to live."

Scilly is followed on the list by Central London, Bognor Regis and Chester.
