I know again it's relative but we've never rented so unsure how high we can go per month as we have to live on just my husband's wage until our daughter starts school in January

also from Cornwall - we found utilities cheaper, less bills to pay. we pay $350 week rental for a 4 bed and can live fine on a $70,000 salary, although with not a lot left over for trips away etc. BUT it can take ages for teachers new to the system to be paid- OH started in the Jan wasn't paid properly until June (it was all back paid, but some lean times while waiting) and I have just had the same experience. You'll need some extra in the bank to tide you over.
where in cornwall are you?
