Holiday and travel writing for
The Local Answer

We're very fortunate here in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. You see, we've got this amazing local directory called The Local Answer that pops through the letterbox once a month and packed with useful information and interesting articles. It's well-written too, an excellent example of its type that's put together with incredible passion and professionalism by a dedicated family-run team – and a carefully-picked team of expert writers like me...

Late in 2015 I started writing for The Local Answer. I've always enjoyed travel writing (you can read other examples here on my website). It made sense to combine this interest and the photographs that my wife and I have taken on our travels. We're fortunate that we seem to be able to get away and travel independently to a wide range of locations in the UK and elsewhere around the world – and it's great to be able to share our experiences with others.

Here then are the travel and tourism pieces that I've written for Lois and her team up at Ullenwood in the Cotswolds.
