In a day and age of low cost flights, a holiday abroad seems like a no-brainer. However on our doorsteps and only a drive away are beautiful towns and villages set in incredible countryside and along breathtaking coastlines. Back in August we jumped in the car and headed down to Dartmouth for super relaxing week. The weather wasn't on our side the whole time - it gave us an excuse to have long lie ins and massages - but when the sun did come out it shone down on the regatta and the exciting goings on in this delightful town. One day I grabbed the camera and took a walk to Dartmouth Castle. Up high in the narrow lanes there are amazing views across the river Dart - click on the paranormal above! I've been inspired to explore more of our British Isles after this trip and our weekend away in the New Forest… where next?
