"I enjoy the peace, the quaintness, the safety, and I suppose the rural part of Bere Island. It’s so lovely for children to grow up and it’s like heaven really.
I haven’t always lived on the island, but my husband has. I’m from the mainland, which is not too far away, but it’s still not an island.
It’s just so lovely and peaceful and we have everything here. We have two pubs and two restaurants, and there’s a church. We have two ferry services that are quite frequent. You wouldn’t need to go to the mainland very often though.
