Even though I live in one of the most beautiful places in the country, at times it can feel a little claustraphobic and the desire to ‘escape’ within my immediate periphery seeps in. Sometimes a jaunt around the back streets of Bridport can do the trick but if I want to properly ‘escape’ there is no finer place than Cogden Beach.

Great excitement amongst all @lymeregis.

If the sun keeps shining, the Trill Summer Festival will be the festival of ones dreams , or my dreams, at least, this year. Beautiful setting, freedom to roam, swim, build fires and generally get a hippy festival vibe and still maintain your creature comforts . Read more
2 things to do, one for clement weather, the other for inclement. We are bound to have the latter and a possibility of the former at some point in the week.
Bluebell Woods at Blackbury Camp, an old Iron Age fort. Read more
How come its always sunny on Broadchurch aka West Bay? I really don’t remember when it was dry for so many days in a row but its TV, so of course it must be true.
The sun was out, brilliantly, on Saturday morning. Read more
The tranquil setting of Lamberts Castle always gives me a real feeling of escape. With Winters light streaming though the trees and a huge vista down to the sea at Charmouth it feels a very special place. Read more
