1 // Liberty London

“Top of the list every time is Liberty’s of London… it’s a place I feel truly inspired by and love to spend hours just getting lost in it’s heritage and quirkiness. I never come out empty handed!”

2 // Chatsworth House

“Close to home is Chatsworth… I’m so lucky to have this great historical house on my doorstep. Beautiful gardens and surrounding fields designed by the very talented Capability Brown, is a great place to unwind. Rambling walks on the estate or a picnic by the river is a must.”

4 // Dale Road, Matlock

“As well as being home to one of the best furniture shops in the UK (Indigo of course!) Dale Road has now become the home of vintage and antique shops. There’s nothing better on a Saturday morning than to grab a coffee and have a good mooch hoping to pick up a bargain or an old leather suitcase to add to my collection.”

Address: Dale Road, Matlock, Derbyshire DE4 3LT

5 // Hay-on-Wye

“Hay-on-Wye….A great little market town full of second hand quirky bookshops. I love the smell of an old book.. the worn pages and the little bits of history left among the pages and here it’s full of them!”

Address: Hay-on-Wye, Herefordshire, Wales
