I'm all for anyone moving to the coast, its something I did a few years ago and don't ever regret it for a second.

 

But the East coast can be a bit bleak out of season.  Work could be an issue too with not many large large towns or conurbations. 

Not taking the pee, but  does the threat of global warning not worry you? living so close to sea level. £150k investment in Skeggy may turn out to be a very bad one.

Or even to southern France, Occitanie, Languedoc, or Costa Brava. Mild winters.

 

Whereabouts  in France are you ?

In France you would need the heating on in your van most nights in winter even on the Med  - temps in Perpignan - probably the warmest part of France in the aurumn / winter have been low / mid teens all week and well down in single figures at night - just picking up again now, but forecast to be single figures in the day with frost at night early December.  Dec / Jan & Feb have average highs 12/13 C and lows 5/6.

 

We're in Perigord Noir (the south east of the Dordogne department) - were're only a 5 minute drive from from the "border" with Occitanie (Lot department).

 

Massive numbers of people in motorhomes head to Spain for the winter - usually south of  Valencia. The Algarve in Portugal is also popular. None round here although can't move for them May - October.

hi all,semi retired, fancy moving to east coast and buying a  mobile home /van ,any tips on how to go about it and getting temp work etc, cheers.

Seriously think about it.  You might find it ok now, but as you and your mobile home get older, you might not be able to cope as well with the damp, cold winters and from a lot of popular resorts it's a long way to a decent hospital.

I'm on the West Coast so its not so much of a worry. Plus I'll probably be long gone by the time it happens.

 

I think the more immediate danger on the East coast is how quickly its being washed away:
