Welcome... With DISCOVER, our new magazine, we hope to give you an insight into why we love it here, how you can make the most of the area and what it offers whilst you relax at your favourite holiday cottage. In this, our first issue, we point you in the direction of some of the best places in the West Country to discover our growing foodie status, whether that’s the great food provenance (pages 10-15) or the emerging chefs (pages 54-61) set on making the South West the gastronomic capital of the country. Once you’ve had your fill of fine food, you may feel the need for a spot of exercise, nothing too strenuous, maybe a good walk along the South West Coast Path (pages 42-45) or perhaps a hunt to find a few of our favourite places by the sea (pages 16-20), and when you’ve reached your destination, why not settle down with a good book (pages 62-63)? Of course, there are many more wonderful places about the South West than we can squeeze into one magazine, but we hope that the few of our favourites we’ve selected will inspire you to explore some new things, and leave you feeling as enthusiastic as us about the brilliant West Country. Have a fantastic summer, and we look forward to welcoming you to the South West again soon.
