    Thank you all for your replies and advice. We have just returned from another visit to Devon our third in two months, and are still feeling scared but also excited. Our house is sold in Essex and our offer on a property in Devon accepted . Whilst there we checked out a couple of mountain bike groups and I drove to the cross fit gym which is just 15 mins from where we will be living. So it’s all systems go, the move is happening and am just trying to deal with fact that I will miss my family and friends but will still be commuting back to Essex every 6/8 weeks so can do some catching up then. I will take your advice and be prepared to put in that effort to meet people where I can. May not be easy but try I shall! Will let you know how the story unfolds!

    Thank you for taking the time to reply, similar as our girls are grown up though one not finished uni in Portsmouth yet. My entire family live in Essex so it will be very difficult to leave and to leave our friends also. We both have jobs, my partner transferring, and my company have agreed to let me work remotely which is fantastic as after 24 years with the same company I wasn’t sure I could leave and find such a good job I enjoy in north Devon. I will check out all the local clubs and will enjoy making new friends just very daunting! Thank you again for your advice and sharing your own experience.
