A Week in Pictures: Ahoy There!

This week I’ve been out on the road for Mad River visiting four RNLI lifeboat stations across England which are
due to receive a display re-fresh to help drive visitor engagement. To spice things
up on Country Bumpkin Chic I thought I’d share some of my snaps  courtesy of my iPhone 5 with you from
my visit to four beautiful coastal areas: Aldeburgh in Suffolk, Hastings in Sussex, Lizard and Padstow
in Cornwall. Obviously half are from the west country, but the rest are truly beautiful
too and worth sharing.

Westleton Crown Inn hotel – where Kate & Will stayed the night before their wedding anniversary.

I stayed in the aptly named ‘Wren’ room… was very Country Bumpkin Chic.

Apparently Aldeburgh is the new Chelsea-on-Sea.

Gorgeous Country Bumpkin café who made me a delicious ice-cream milkshake for the road.
