After a few dreary and actually pretty cold weeks, this weekend was beautifully sunny and warm hooray! Typical that the summer returns just as the holidaymakers start to leave… Above is a photo of Westward Ho! seafront with the most important ingredient (apart from the sun, beach and great view!) a Hockings Ice Cream van […]

Living by the sea

Coastal inspired gifts

We’re lucky enough to live and work by the sea in North Devon. If you’ve been here you’ll know its wild and rugged coastline. The landscape here influences many of our designs and remains a big inspiration for our team of artists and craftspeople. This week we’re celebrating all things coastal. Travis has been having a great time this […]

Somersault Festival

Somersault Festival 2014

Some of the Letterfest team went to the Somersault festival last weekend and a very summery relaxed day it turned out to be. The festival was in the grounds of the beautiful Castle Hill here in North Devon. This stately home has some of the most gorgeous Devonshire countryside for its grounds. Surrounded by woodland with streams […]

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It’s half marathon James!

Running in the North Devon countryside

When James isn’t busy creating our illustrations and art prints, he’s a bit of a fitness fan. Cycling to work every day from Ilfracombe which is a good 26 mile round trip, in all weathers, he puts the rest of us to shame. He’s turned his attention to running recently and has been taking advantage of […]

On the trail of scarecrows – yes really!

Instow scarecrow trail

Our village primary school organised a scarecrow trail this weekend and being fine upstanding citizens of Instow, we had to take part! Local residents created a gob-smacking assortment of scarecrows around the village for people to find. After buying the scarecrow map it was a case of finding the little chaps outside people’s homes, at […]
