St Abb's Head

St Abb’s Head – Seabird ‘City’

St Abbs is a strong contender for the title of Scotland’s prettiest village.  It lies in a stunning location, nestled on the coast below dramatic cliffs with spectacular views across the sea. This is a place with something for everyone with its picturesque harbour, spectacular coastal walks, undersea adventures and abundance of […]

Eyemouth

Eyemouth – Ships, Smugglers and Seals

Eyemouth is something of an undiscovered treasure. This busy fishing port is tucked away on the Berwickshire coast and it’s easy to miss if you’re heading to St Abb’s Head, its picturesque neighbour. This authentic coastal town is worth a visit, even if it is a little rough around the edges. […]

Amble harbour and Warkworth Castle

Coastal walks – Amble – Fish and Ships

Amble is one of the most under-rated tourist centres on the Northumberland coast with its fish, ships and picturesque harbour. It’s a great place to stroll along the beach, watch the boats come in, and enjoy some of the best fish and chips in Britain. This unpretentious coastal town has something for every taste.  It may not […]

Tourists have been flocking to the area after watching the hit TV show in which romantic hero Aidan Turner captured the heart of the nation. Could it have been down to […]

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. The village was once a bustling fishing port but today it’s a sleepy backwater, a honey pot for tourists escaping the hustle […]

Embleton

Craster: Sea, sand and kippers

Craster is one of Northumberland’s coolest locations. No, I don’t mean the weather although admittedly it’s often chilly and windswept on the North East coast. I’m talking about the joys of sea, sand and shell fish…. in one of the most dramatic locations on Britain’s coastline. Last weekend we took the camper […]
