Mere paces from the water, almost uniform with the rest of the wooden beach huts that line the beach, the Knoll Bookshop is a pleasant surprise on the Studland Bay. For anyone who has come to the beach without their summer read, the bookshop is a life saver.
The World of James Herriot is a charming and nostalgic attraction located in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, England. It is dedicated to the life and works of the ‘real’ James Herriot, the pen name of the renowned British veterinarian and author, James Alfred Wight, better known as Alfie Wight.

With such a huge […]
Il Fiume Italian Restaurant in Bradford on Avon is tucked awag in a hidden corner of the unassuming Bridge Yard, which also hosts The Weaving Shed and Olea Mediterranean.
