Ever since her Grandad took her on childhood rambles across the Norfolk countryside, Sarah has loved getting out into the great outdoors. Fortunately, she's managed to turn this love into a living.

Whether she's floating down Welsh rivers, hiking around the Cornish coast, topping tors in Dartmoor, bird-watching in Norfolk, spotting stags in the Cairngorms or strolling straight into the Cotswolds from her Bath front door, she's happiest when exploring at home.
