Let Kirstie find your dream home
Are you hunting for a house situation in the Westcountry that finds the perfect balance between city buzz and country quiet?
If you're willing to do it in front of the cameras, this could be your chance to be on telly.
Kirstie Allsopp will be presenting Best of Both Worlds, which starts filming at the end of September with Raise the Roof Productions.
"This is the perfect opportunity for people who want to take the plunge of leaving city limits behind in favour of a relocation to a more leafy lifestyle," said producer Andrew Jackson.

"With Kirstie's years of experience in property finding, this really is the chance to buy a new home that gives the best of both worlds."
Kirstie has parted company with her Location, Location, Location co-star Phil Spencer for the series. She said: "While Phil is making his own property shows, I thought I might see if I could manage this house-hunting lark without him. So if you think I could help you find your dream home, and you can bear to be without Pip, then do get in touch."

Get on your bike for charity on September 21 to support FORCE, a cancer charity, in Exeter. David Wilson Homes staff members are teaming up with cyclists from FORCE and Countrywide for the event. The ride will meet at noon at the new Hillside Gardens development in Pinhoe, going via Cullompton through the A38 to Langford Mead in Taunton. "We are very proud as a company to be supporting such a worthwhile cause as Force Cancer" said Louise Acreman of David Wilson Homes. Entrants are asked to raise or donate £15 to take part.

Figures from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) show that the UK's residential property market continued improving in August – so much that house prices are rising at their fastest rate since 2006. Mortgage lenders said that first-time buyer numbers have soared to their highest levels since 2007. James Baker from Strutt and Parker's Exeter office said: "There is a growing sense of optimism for the typically busy autumn period from both ends of the market: downsizers looking for a minimal effort home to move into, and families looking to move up the ladder. We expect an influx of new properties at the end of the summer holiday season."
McCarthy and Stone has now opened the doors to the new show complex at Stover Court, its new Later Living development in Newton Abbot. Lorena Brown of McCarthy and Stone, said: "The stunning show complex highlights the comfortable lifestyle that could be achieved in retirement. It is a must-see for anyone over the age of 55 who has ever thought about downsizing so that they can make the most of their retirement years." The Later Living model is designed to offer people the independence of home ownership, while living in an apartment designed for reduced maintenance and administration.
