Our guides have featured in 'the glossies' on many occasions since the birth of CVP We contribute walks, articles and photographs to Devon Life, Somerset Life and Cornwall Life. The excellent Bird Watching magazine also regularly uses our walks in its Go Birding section and James' wonderful photographs earned us a centre-page spread in The Sunday Independent. Our work appears in various other national magazines including Landscape and Caravan. Our features on Snowdrop Valley and Exmoor Ponies will appear in 2015 issues of Somerset Life in addition to the walks.
We were thrilled when our photo of the iconic Raddon Pine, from the Thorverton walk in Circular Walks in Central Devon, was 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 February 2014 cover, from our County Gate walk in A Dozen Dramatic Walks in Somerset.
We've had some lovely 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.
Going back a bit, 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 - more to follow! If you'd like to be kept informed please contact us.
