In the words of DH Lawrence, being in Cornwall is “like being at a window and Looking out of England”; he wasn’t wrong. Cornwall is one of the best places to travel in the UK and, in my opinion, the best summer holiday destination in Britain. There is an endless amount of attractions that this incredibly unique region has to offer. A rich Celtic history and the birthplace of the UK’s famous legend King Arthur, Cornwall effortlessly blends history with the tranquil ambience of life on the coast, quaint fishing villages and peaceful retreats as well as playing host to some of the worlds most fiercely contested surfing competitions. For me, what really puts it ahead of the rest is…

With the cheer of the festive season now becoming a distant memory, and the chilly winds of January starting to ease off, we can finally start looking forward to Spring and Summer. With milder temperatures and longer days, we're all ready for a bit more romance in our lives. Happy Valentines Day! It's the time of the year when the English rose becomes even more symbolic, and chocolates and heart shaped items flood the shop windows ready for the hopeless charmers and loved up partners to show how much they care. Valentine's Day is a very old tradition, thought to originate from as far back as Roman times when they had a festival named Lupercalia in mid-February - which officially marked the…

The English West Country, a collection of some of the most rural, beautiful counties Britain has to offer.
