Living in a beautiful part of the county is an absolute privilege and through this blog I hope to share some of the special places, experiences and events I enjoy with my family and friends. These are usually around the East Devon and West Dorset with the occasional trip a bit further afield.

I was brought up in East Devon, but with busy farming parents we didn’t often go out and about like so many families do these days. My Devon childhood meant school holidays were spent running off into the fields, making dens and helping to haul hay bales.

After school and university I moved away for work and finally returned to my roots in my 30’s. Now back here with my own family I have realised that here are so many wonderful places to see and a lot of cream teas to sample!


The name of the blog is inspired by my two daughters, who also brought up as true country girls are happy in their wellies all year round, but when going somewhere new used to ask ” mum what shall we wear, flip flops or wellies?”

So whether you are on holiday, recently moved to the region or like me live here and know that there are great places just a few miles away that seem to have passed you by, then I hope you enjoy reading this blog.

Please feel free to email me with any suggestions for future posts as I really want to keep on exploring as well.

Thank you for looking
