The Jolly Cricketers in Seer Green
JollyCricketers2The Jolly Cricketers is my all-time favourite and luckily it’s walking distance from home. Well known for its superb food and well selected drinks but it’s also a great community pub with an ever friendly atmosphere. Most pubs seem to suit one type of outing but this one does it all – I’ve been these for girl’s lunches, class nights out, dinner with friends, a game of scrabble with my daughter & our dog and even a book launch. And I’ve lost my husband there on more than a few boys’ nights out! Website: click here.

Forever Green in Old Beaconsfield
ForeverGreenWhenever there’s a special occasion to buy flowers I go straight to Forever Green. I just love choosing flowers to suit the person or event and seeing them transformed into a fabulous bunch. They always have such a gorgeous selection – and some great little gifts to tempt you too.

Heidi & Hudson in Gerrards Cross
HeidiHudsonHeidi & Hudson is so many peoples favourite fashion boutique, not just mine. Always full of beautiful understated elegant clothes from familiar and not-so-familiar brands. Located on the corner of Gerrards Cross High Street, there’s temptation on every school run! And the men’s fashion is just as good if your other half needs a bit of a make-over. Website: click here.

Hodgemoor Woods in Seer Green/Chalfont St Giles
HodgemoorA great place to get a little bit lost and walk Poppy, our slightly mad spaniel. There are some splendid ancient trees to admire but my favourite thing is how the wood changes with the seasons – from carpets of bluebells to autumn leaves. And ideal for cool walks on hot summer days. Website: click here.

Bekonscot Model Village in Beaconsfield
BekonscotBekonscot was my daughter’s favourite day out when she was younger. She would spend hours watching the little model train going around the town. Every little person I know loves this mini world. We always had fun making up stories about the people singing hymns outside the church and the fire in the thatched roof that never quite gets put out. Website: click here.
