Now we are nearly ten - and CVP is having a great time!

The feature writing has taken us on some fascinating trips: the hidden Rame Peninsula; Hardy's Wessex; a septennial Perambulation; behind the scenes in one of the RSPCA's wildlife units; Morris Dancing; sampling the intricacies of Honiton Lace. We've explored the myths and mystery of Dartmoor's Wistman's Wood and tracked down love and legend in Exmoor's Doone Valley. We get to sample lovely food, try out spa treatments and test our metal on the open sea. And we meet some inspiring and empowering people.

Our guides have featured in 'the glossies' on many occasions since the birth of CVP. We contribute walks, articles and photographs to many publications including Devon Life, Somerset Life, LandScape, Caravan and The Countryman.
The excellent Bird Watching magazine regularly uses birding features and walks in its Go Birding section and we've been up in the sky with Flybe's Flight Time.

We were thrilled when
Simone's shot of the Jurassic Coast near Sidmouth was selected as a Devon Life Big Picture. James' photo of the iconic Raddon Pine, from the Thorverton walk in Circular Walks in Central Devon, was also used as a cover image for Devon Life. This is a very striking picture and is our best-selling greetings card. Somerset Life also had one of James' photos for their cover, from our County Gate walk in A Dozen Dramatic Walks in Somerset.

Over the years we've
had some good coverage on BBC Radio and Radio Devon's Pippa Quelch came for a walk with us, recording as we went and managing to dodge the rain for a couple of features on her Sunday morning programme. We also led a walk along the Jurassic Coast from Branscombe for Radio Devon's 'Walk Devon' series.
In June 2017 BBC Radio got wind of our ever-popular title, A Dozen Dramatic Walks in Cornwall, which made a guest appearance on Debbie McCrory's programme.

Back in the early days, we were delighted when A Dozen Dramatic Walks in Cornwall was one of the runners-up in the 'Marine, Industrial Heritage and the Environment' Class of the Holyer an Gof (Publishers) Awards 2012. The book received much positive acclaim from the Holyer an Gof Readers who assessed all the books entered - 89 across the competition. A Dozen Dramatic Walks in Cornwall was commended for its informative and descriptive content, its photography, layout and design. They see many walking books for Cornwall and said of this one that it "stands out from all the rest", which was lovely to hear!

As well as the various indoor launches and signing events we also occasionally lead group walks. These are hugely enjoyable days. If you'd like to be kept informed please contact us.
