Abby Driver

Based in Newquay, Abby loves the dramatic cliff scenery and epic waves that can only be found on the North coast of Cornwall. The preposterous number of beaches to choose from, friendly year round community, ever tempting foodie scene, and sheer variety of things to do in each season also add to its allure. Think stormy, peaceful winters contrasted with the warm buzz of summer. Her perfect day in Cornwall involves walking her Golden Retriever, Lowen, on the beach, sea swimming and yoga, with some creative writing thrown in for good measure. After working in fashion in London, Abby loves to go back to the capital for a short break, while a road trip to Scotland and a spa and foodie weekend in Bath are both on the UK bucket list. Since moving back to Cornwall, Abby has worked at a marketing agency and written for a mixture of publications and charities across the UK and beyond.
