Life is busy, and life as a mum is even busier! That is why I’ve created Little Devon – a website for us parents looking for good, honest news, reviews and interesting articles to help make daily life a little easier and sometimes inspiring. Whether it’s discovering local classes to take the little one to and meet new mum friends; a hidden gem café with excellent coffee and cake; or fantastic products born, made or sold in Devon for our kids or even for us mums – Little Devon has got it covered.
Having moved to Devon a few years before I had children, I am even more aware that our children are privileged to grow up with sandy beaches, moorland national parks and medieval towns in their back garden.
We, at Little Devon (me and my team of two children), hope to do the hard work so you can simply pack the car and get out to explore our glorious county, making fantastic memories with your little one. We will also throw in some wonderful goodies made right here in Devon and articles written by local experts that feed the mind and help us to stay sane too. We test out and enjoy all the experiences ourselves so gladly accept tickets, products and experiences in order to review them (please email [email protected] if you have something you think we and our readers would be interested in, or see the ‘Work with us’ section below for other ways we can work together). That said, if the product, experience etc is not quite right, we will not write about it – so our readers can be sure to trust what they read.
How was Little Devon born?
Having not long moved to Devon, and certainly not explored it very well, I had the gift of ‘time to discover’ during maternity leave with my gorgeous girl (yes ‘time’ is very much in inverted commas!). I was in a whole new world of babies and I wanted to know what there was to do with her around Exeter and in Devon. Suitable events, walks and days out were frustratingly difficult to find and when found, lacking in detail. There was certainly no one place that achieved all this, so, after many-an-hour during night feeds trying to google and Facebook what’s on for little ones, what’s interesting for new mums, and where to have adventures in our wonderful county, the idea of Little Devon was conceived. I hope that Little Devon will help Devon mums in their mum journey. Because we all need a little help from time to time, whether that help is a 5 min break and a hot cup of tea, reviews of local classes or goodies, plans ready-made for a day trip, or to exercise the mind with an interesting article. That’s it. It’s that simple. We hope you enjoy.
Work with us
Little Devon is written by me: a thirty-something mum to two: a pre-schooler girl and baby boy, who both seem to be doing their best to grow up too quickly. We live in Exeter, Devon and enjoy exploring the best of what Devon has to offer. I’m happy to talk about any opportunity and work with brands where there is a natural fit for our site and our readers. If you would like to work together, we’d love to hear from you (if I don’t reply, please do chase, as I said above – life is busy!). Please do get in touch and we can discuss:
- Brand collaboration: product reviews and events, social media promotion
- Sponsored posts and affiliates: I’m happy to consider these providing they fit naturally with our content.
- Advertising: there are various bespoke advertising options such as sidebar display ads, banner and posts.
