My love for Devon started way back in the 80s, with my family’s annual summer trip down south. There was no pre-booking, we just drove around looking for ‘vacancy’ signs outside B&Bs. I always thought this was extremely adventurous!
For me, those seaside holidays always bring back fond memories of building sand castles, body boarding and sandy sandwiches all huddled toegther on a red tartan blanket (i’m sure you know the one I mean!).
Roll on 20 years (ish) and I have been living in Devon for just over eight years. I’m by no means a local, but I do feel very lucky to be living in this part of the country.
When I’m not working, I love getting out and about and exploring new places. Isn’t Devon great for that. I started Mad About Devon so I could share my favourite things, and whether you’re Devon born and bred or just love visiting for your annual holiday, I can’t wait to show you the very best this gorgeous county has to offer.
I’ll be using this blog to tell you about what I’ve been doing and showcasing some of the best places to eat, drink and stay. The instagram feed will be filled with my best snaps from around the region and some fun stories too.
I’m always keen to support new businesses and independent retailers, so if you’d like to feature on the blog or you have any upcoming events that you would like mentioning, just drop me a line.
