About Vicky Hinchliffe

I love gardening, wildlife and the great outdoors. I also have a passion for running and have completed 3 half marathons to date - with more planned. I try to live by the motto, 'be pretty on rest days' so when I'm not training I like nothing more than some pampering, high heels and lip gloss! I've worked at TLH for longer than I care to dwell on but have seen so many changes it's been like working for 3 or 4 different companies! I am now in Marketing and am involved in spreading the word about how great TLH is!

The word itself stems from the old fashioned word ‘betwixt’, meaning between. It can be a peculiar few days,  between the 27th and 30th December,  when families are often thrown together and  the dangerous combination of too much food, drink and boredom can have unpleasant consequences!

Where to go on holiday in October?

Where to go on holiday in October? We think there’s no better place than the English Riviera, on Devon’s beautiful south coast. We’re not talking sun drenched overseas destinations here, think short break in the UK during the ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’.

The English Riviera is perceived as a summer destination, but once the children go back to school and the visitor numbers die down you can enjoy its many charms at an unhurried pace. For anyone looking for a short break, the autumn brings a host of great things to see and do.
