We’re Nick and Liam, the muddy boots and checked theatre tickets behind Westcountry Weekender.
Nick was born in Devon, whilst Liam grew up in the Midlands but has lived in Bristol, Exeter and Mid-Devon.
We’re passionate about the Westcountry and started this blog to celebrate the places, businesses and events that make the South West such a great place to live and holiday in.
Nick grew up in south Devon and with a Dorset dad and Somerset mum, he’s about as West Country as you can be. He now works in marketing and copywriting and is also the author of four books.
Nick loves walking and has hiked some big stretches of the South West Coast Path in Devon. He’s also the resident theatre lover and literature buff. Nick undertakes freelance copywriting and marketing work. If you’re interested in working with him please get in touch, to find out more.
Liam is a freelance software engineer and web developer and is a dab hand at graphic design. He’s a keen baker and has a strong interest in arts and crafts.
Liam is a big live music fan and the team foodie.
Together Nick and Liam love to travel and it’s this passion for exploration and making the most of time off work that led to the creation of Westcountry Weekender.
We now split our time between France (where we have a small house and a big garden that keeps us very busy) and the West Country, where we still have lots of friends and family to visit.
