If you have followed us here on this blog, you would have noticed by now that we love small, independent businesses especially prevalent in small towns. On our visit to Lyme Regis, we were able to see some of these thriving and mostly independent shops, stores and restaurants.

Just after the Lyme Regis shingles and sandy beaches, is the Fossil Beach. Also, known as Monmouth Beach, this approximately 1 mile stretch of pebble beach comes with a twist. The pebbles and rocks are from the Jurassic age and may contain fossils and large ammonites. On some stretches of the beach, the rocks are […]
Looking for a beach with soft and golden ivory sand when in Dorset, visit Studland Bay. There are four different beaches in the bay plus another small beach on the neighbouring bay called Shell Bay. These sandy beaches are, South Beach, Middle Beach (which we feature in an earlier post), Knoll Beach and Naturist Beach.
Lyme Regis Beach along the stunning Jurassic Coastline of southern England is a captivating stretch of coastline that boasts both natural beauty and historical significance. With its golden sands, gentle waves, and dramatic cliffs, the beach offers a picturesque setting for leisurely walks, sun-soaked afternoons, and fossil hunting adventures.
A small surprise find on our visit to Lyme Regis, a row of quirky and eclectic seafront houses. Most of these have been turned into holiday lets but they are still glorious nonetheless.

On our way home after our visit to Durham on a Sunday morning, we stumbled upon this quaint seaside town called Saltburn-by-the-Sea. We didn’t exactly visit the town but just the Saltburn Beach. However, we quickly realised just how much the place has to offer had any of the restaurants and attractions been open.
When in Saltburn, take a stroll along the seaside walkway and visit the ‘beach huts of many colours’. We were there on a quiet Sunday morning, so had the place practically to ourselves.
Thirsk in North Yorkshire is a market town serving the Vale of Mowbray for nine centuries. Industries that thrived then included linen weaving, leather goods, malting and brewing, rope making, leather goods and basket making. Our quick stop at Thirsk on a Sunday morning, allowed us time to get to know the market town, shops, […]
I know, it’s not quite the main attraction when you visit an open air theatre carved into the side of a steep cliff but we couldn’t resist. The collection of subtropical plans dotted next to the paths and steps was so intriguing and beautiful we had to take photos of them to share here.
