Weekend in The West Country

Lynton Lynmouth

A weekend spent with friends, breathing fresh air and enjoying the beauty of The West Country was all I needed to recharge my inner batteries. It was my first time visiting this part of the UK and I fell in love instantly. Located between the Bristol Channel and English Channel, you don't have to travel more than half an hour to reach one of the coasts. Sounds like a perfect place to me.

Saturday morning couldn't be better. I woke up in a beautiful sunlit room.  The gorgeous sunlight made me feel very happy and reminded me how much I need sunshine in my life. I hadn't felt so inspired since last summer. London winter is too long!

Local baked eggs for breakfast made the morning even better and supplied us with enough energy for most of the day.

We had shortly stopped for a few shots in Exmoor National Park before heading to the coast. Exmoor Ponies are probably the cutest horses I've ever seen. They looked so beautiful and elegant in the afternoon light.

When we finally arrived to Lynmouth, I was in awe. This small coastal village won my heart immediately. I would love to spend at least a week here.

We stopped in Glastonbury on the way home to see ruins of Glastonbury Abbey and the burial place of King Arthur.

What a weekend! I can't wait to get back and explore some more of this charming part of the UK.

  10. You and Giulia should have stopped at my place for tea on the way - I live right by the A303 which you must've driven down - about 15 minutes away from Glastonbury! Glad you liked the West Country! I knew Giulia would - the moors somehow remind me of the hills around her house in winter - beautiful in their bleakness.
