    Chagford at night

    Chagford is a great place to visit at any time of the day or year. With excellent pubs, each with a character of its own, it would be rude not to enjoy a few fermented vegetable drinks. However, a car is required, which complicates things.

    Osborne House

    Osborne House is a beautiful building and, whilst an ostentatious display of wealth, also shows an appreciation of quality craftsmanship and sustainability that might, hopefully, make a return one day.

  • Blues to Bliss
    Blues to Bliss
