Muddy says: A historic 14th century castle with a modern indie vibe. The home to Let's Rock Exeter and Radio One's Big Weekend in 2016, with centuries of stories behind it and an exciting future as a cultural hub ahead.
Muddy says: North Devon does 'big' well, doesn't it? Big landscapes, big beaches and The Big Sheep, with the biggest rollercoaster in the county! Kids will love this place, with its rides, live animal shows and all the charm of a farmyard, with oodles of added fun.
Muddy says: cute, furry, totally affectionate animals? Check. Cracking countryside location with views out to the Jurassic Coast? Check. Loads to do, plus a cafe worthy of a visit alone? Checkity check-check. Of course we're totally smitten by The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth!
Muddy says: Fitness, fun and a body to kill for? If you haven't discovered this spanky new bouldering facility in Plymouth then what *are* you waiting for? Psst. the cafe's cool, too!
Muddy says: Light, bright and oh so pretty! This gorgeous, multi-award winning gift shop in the centre of Exeter absolutely nails affordable gifts for every species of the human race. We've a lot of love for Hyde + Seek (can't say my bank balance feels the same, though...)
Muddy says: Huzzah! All the very best of British design in one very-easy-to-browse place. This should be your go-to website for gorgeous gifts, for birthdays, weddings, christenings...anything, really! An online store that celebrates Britain's indie makers? Of *course* we're totally in love with Silk & Slate.
