Clovelly

Clovelly – Devon’s prettiest village?

Clovelly is a strong contender for the title of Devon’s prettiest village. Locked in a time warp, its charming cobbled streets, whitewashed cottages and picturesque harbour have changed little since the 1800s.

Verity – Damien Hirst’s Angel of Devon

“What do you think of our Verity?” is the question on everybody’s lips when you visit Ilfracombe in Devon.

Bird bonanza on the Farne Islands

It’s bird bonanza time on the Farne Islands as migrating birds flock onto the islands for the summer season. This makes the Farnes one of my top summer holiday trips. For our feathered friends, this is more than a bird vacation. They are here for romance and – let’s be […]

Hardknott Roman Fort – Wild Walk

The English Lake District is renowned for its wild walks but my trip to Hardknott Roman Fort proved to be wilder than I’d anticipated. Spring is one of my favourite times of year in the Lakes but it’s also when you can experience four seasons of weather in 24 hours. Overnight […]
