The Best Places to Visit In The West Country

One of the best things about my recent road trip with my mum was just losing a sense of time. We didn’t rush anywhere, we didn’t set daily plans, sometimes we didn’t know where we were going until we got there.

We wandered.

We cruised.

We travelled.

We explored.

We spent our days breathing in fresh, country air, walking through salty, seaside breezes, watching waves break, clouds roll, and lambs bounce across hillsides; we soaked up as much nature as possible.

England’s West Country has miles upon miles of stunning, ever-changing landscapes from sandy beaches to rolling, green hills to lush forests. We spent most of our time in Cornwall but also ventured through Devon and Dorset.

Here’s a few tonne of trip highlights…

    1. It really was such a beautiful part of England! Mum was visiting from Australia (I’m actually from Sydney!) so think she loved seeing such different landscapes too. :)

    1. Thank you! :) Well, I took so many photos at The Eden Project that I decided to make a separate post about it. It should be up soon – just in the editing stages! :D

      I have no idea about the giant rhino… so strange that I had to include the photo. Haha!
