How long have you lived in North Devon? Born and bred #trulylocal
What’s your absolute favourite place to visit in North Devon and why? I love Watersmeet in Lynmouth because it's perfect for a walk and a delicious cream tea at the National Trust Tea Rooms. I also really love the quaint seaside village of Appledore as it really feels like you are on holiday when you are wandering around the cobbled streets, popping into the unique little shops or watching the children crabbing from the quay.
What’s your favourite café or restaurant in the area and what would you choose to eat there? Tea on the Green in Westward Ho! is fabulous and I’d always go for a slice of one of their spectacular cakes. The Flame Factory in Appledore for pizza, or The Seagate in Appledore
Where do you like to go if you’re a little bit thirsty and what’s your favourite tipple? Bar 62 in Barnstaple and it would have to be one of their amazing cocktails – probably a Clear Cosmo or Passion-fruit Martini
What’s your favourite hobby or activity to do in North Devon and how do you unwind after a busy day in the office? One of my favourite things to do after work is picking up yummy fish and chips from Squires in Braunton and eating them in our van overlooking Woolacombe beach - so relaxing!
What’s the one thing in North Devon you couldn’t live without? It would have to be Squires fish and chips!
