Hello! I hope you’re enjoying the GoWildGoWest website.
You might be wondering who we are. I’m Georgie, and my sister is Becks. Between us we have 4 kids, 4 dogs, and occasionally a few lambs, chickens, tadpoles or other family members and friends in tow.
Becks is from the beautiful moors of Devon and I live in deepest, darkest rural Somerset. You’ll usually find us out and about enjoying the amazing natural playground that is the South West of England (and Wales!)
What’s the story?
Since long ago when we were youngsters, we’ve always loved to adventure outdoors, explore new places, challenge ourselves, and try new things. After having kids, nothing changed. We both enjoy watching our children discover the awesomeness of nature and the huge playground that is our environment. We’ve encouraged their natural curiosity to discover everything the world has to offer from watching bees and butterflies to exploring different animal tracks and poos. We’ve adventured on canoes, built rafts, hiked up mountains, bird-watched, camped, star-gazed, walked, paddled, run, climbed, swam, snorkelled, sledged….. we all get a little cabin-feverish when left indoors.
We set up GoWildGoWest to share our experiences with those that like to explore and are looking for new adventures. Whether you’re thinking about a short family walk near Bristol, an awesome kayak adventure along the River Dart, hidden beaches in Cornwall, mountain climbing in Wales, or family-friendly campsites in Devon, we’ve written about where we love to go and what we love to do – experiences that we hope you’ll enjoy as much as we have!
