Finding the world’s best beach in Wales

There’s a list online counting down the top 25 beaches in the world. I can’t say I thought during my weekend in Wales that i’d be able to tick one of the best in the world off the list, but I did.

Taking a trip to Somerset’s Lavender Farm

I’m a big believer in using the internet to find new places to visit and when I saw a follower on my instagram account post pictures from Somerset Lavender Farm, I knew I had to go.

And after around 40 minutes driving through country lanes while…
