The North Norfolk Coast

Now renamed the Royal Norfolk coast due to the new home of Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, at Anmer near Sandringham, the Queen’s Christmas residence, North Norfolk has always been a bit of a secret holiday destination.

South Downs

Easily accessible from London, the South Downs is the perfect location for a weekend away or a short break.  The South Downs are a line of chalk hills that run along the southernmost counties of England culminating in the iconic White Cliffs of Dover, picturesque and accessible chalk downlands dotted with pretty villages and ancient market towns.  This landscape offers an eclectic mix of flora and fauna all linked together by the South Downs Way, a National Park, a tranquil playground of gently rolling hills, the ultimate escape. 

Jersey

Jersey, part of the UK well no, not really.  Jersey forms part of the Channel Islands and is actually a Crown dependency located near the French coast. Jersey has its own unique international identity distinct from the UK but evidence of the influence of both France and England is everywhere.  For the visitor Jersey offers a beautiful paradise of unspoilt countryside and coast with the sea never more than ten minutes away  - the island actually measures a mere nine miles by five miles. 

Somerset

Somerset is possibly the most diverse of the south western counties, with the rugged landscape of the Cheddar Gorge and the Mendip Hills, beautiful coastline, the ancient moorland of Exmoor and the jewel in the crown, the exquisite regency city of Bath.

St. Ives, Cornwall

Beloved of artists over the years for its exceptional charm and beauty and the amazing quality of light, St. Ives is everything you would expect from a picture postcard Cornish harbour town and then some.
