Hidey Holes
by Robin Whitcomb

“I wonder to myself how many other amazing little harbours and hidden coves are still to be explored.”

We are all so familiar with the picture-postcard, well-known beauty spots dotted around the coastline that we often ignore the most eye-catching hideaways. Robin Whitcomb’s new guide to England and Wales’ hidden gems unearths more stunning locations, some of which he first glimpsed while putting together his last book, Home Sweet Home.

Travelling through Cornwall with his excitable chocolate Labrador Coco, Robin found himself in the diminutive Porthgwarra, a remote fishing cove used as one of the main locations in the TV series Poldark. The South West coastline supplies several of the most picturesque hidey holes at the beginning of the book, as Robin, his dog and his motorhome wander unknown havens in one of Britain’s most popular holiday destinations.

Hidey Holes takes in North Devon, Pembrokeshire, and the castles that line the rugged Northumbrian coastline, before Robin heads back to South Devon to visit Agatha Christie’s home at Greenway House. Robin’s photography and light-hearted account of his journey, accompanied by landscapes by local painters, will delight readers who love local history, art and the British coast.

Foreword by the Duchess of Northumberland to 'Home Sweet Home - Most Unusual Homes & Locations in England & Wales.'

'Robin has struck upon a most imaginative idea with this book, since we love to see where other people live - especially if their home is a bit quirky and different.

He has travelled the length and breadth of England & Wales over the past three years capturing these eye catching homes with his beautiful photographs.'
