  • 👋 Hello dining indoors, cinema trips, theatre jaunts and hugs!
  • Indoor dining is go from 17 May so let’s do it with finesse, shall we? From Michelin-starred stunners and unique dining experiences, to gastronomic hotels find the best foodie destinations across the Muddy counties - and lots in Devon of course - in Weekend Escapes. Elasticated pants recommended. Link in bio 🍽🥂
  • Champagne and truffles - not what I’m having for breakfast (again) - but the divine-sounding facial you could enjoy if you book into one of these 15 fabulous spa days and stays across the West Country. I put my head together with @muddydorsetsomerset and @muddycornwall to ferret out the latest openings and offers - check out our luxe list in the link in bio.
  • We loved looking at (and salivating over) your entries for our #MuddySpringBakes contest this year, and now the judges scores are in. The winner of a £250 voucher to spend on fabulous kitchen gizmos and gadgets at @lakelanduk is…. @kazweedon with this adorable bunny bunt cake! Almost too cute to eat...
  • Planning a trip to the Big Smoke for a culture fix this summer? Someone call me a cab right now! Don’t move a muscle before you check out our brilliant Muddy guide to what’s on in #London this summer, from David Hockney’s Arrival of Spring, Tracey Emin and Munch @royalacademyarts, to Infinity Mirror Rooms the @_tatemodern_ , and the stunning Alice:Curiouser and curiouser @vamuseum, plus the best festivals and theatre - and where to scoff, quaff and shop nearby. Link in bio.
  • Brand new beach bar, ahoy! Feast your peepers on the shiny-new Exmouth seafront offering from @macaines, @mickeysbeach which as last night’s sneak peek shows really is as gorgeous as it looked in the advance press pics. Opening on 17 May and not surprisingly already booked for the first week though you can walk in to the downstairs bar for light bites and cocktails. Big Muddy ticks for the upstairs terrace complete with river views and retractable roof, selfie swing, beach shack vibes, late night weekend DJ set and quality menu including wood fired pizza, burgers, local caught lobster and tomahawk steak. *phew* Full Muddy review coming soon.
