Hello!

Mad About Devon lifestyle and travel blog

It really does feel a bit like HELLO WORLD… this is me! You’ll be pleased to know that this ‘blog of sorts’ won’t be all about me, but one of my biggest passions, and that’s Devon (I know, the name gives it away!).

But first, let me introduce myself… I’m Laura, hi. I was born ‘up country’ and lived there all my life until I moved to glorious Devon back in 2010… I might tell you that story one day!

Like most children growing up in the 80s, living as far from the coast as possible, summer holidays involved strapping a suitcase to the roof of a Datsun Cherry and hopping on the M5 to the sunny south. Devon was always a firm favourite with our family and that’s where my love for the place first started.

Skip a few (ish) years, and here I am, living the Devon dream with my Devonian man, and I absolutely love it. You’ve got the coast, the moor, and some of the best food and drink in the country (in my opinion). Through my little Instagram community, I’ve come to realise that there are so many independent shops, businesses and new start-ups that need shouting about, so that’s what I’m going to do.

I’ll share my days out, favourite picnic spots, secret beaches and everything in between to give you a real taste of what this glorious county has to offer… enjoy!
