Our contributors share their favourite county, and their perfect country day out…
Favourite county? Dorset, which is where I grew up and I moved back a while ago. Over the years I’ve seen it grow and develop; it’s an interesting and exciting part of the country to be involved with.
What’s your country uniform? I don’t do uniform!
Perfect country day? Out on the boat or riverbank fishing and then preparing lunch from the catch.
Favourite county? Wiltshire. It offers a bit of everything: wonderful countryside (both hilly and flat), buzzy towns like Marlborough, and is perfectly placed to get north and south with ease.
What’s your country uniform? I am generally found hiding beneath the hood of my South West Ten Parka channelling my inner eskimo.
Perfect country day? A fry up followed by the whole family having a day’s hunting with The Beaufort Hounds.
Favourite county? Norfolk. It’s where I grew up and I love heading back there in the summer for a bit of glamping or wild beach time with friends.
What’s your country uniform? I’m definitely a city boy when it comes to my wardrobe, although I do have a pair of Hunters (worn once at Wilderness). Do they count?
Perfect country day? Walking to the sound of the birds, forest run, pottering through a new village, lunch on the water, watching the sunset, local beer, fireside chats.
Favourite county? Wiltshire. My sister, Annamaria, and her family live in Box and I love visiting them. I’ve been going for years and it feels so familiar.
What’s your country uniform? I’m such a city girl that I’m always dressed inappropriately for country life.
Perfect country day? A summer spa overlooking beautiful country views.
