Hello & welcome to Fabulous Places! My name is Deb, I’m a mum, wife, event planner and a lover of visiting new places and shopping!
Fabulous Places is my blog featuring a handpicked selection of my most favourite places I have visited in the UK so far. I’m also including a few extra places from further afield that I just can’t leave out! I love finding gorgeous little shops, coffee shops and eateries… the ones you approach and literally cannot walk by, you just have to go inside! For me, visiting a new area is all about seeking out the little gems, especially those slightly hidden and only found through research or word of mouth.
Here you won’t find long, drawn out reviews of each and every detail nor will I be giving places a rating or comparing them to others. I prefer to offer more of a visual record of my visits and explain a little about the reasons they’re included as part of the blog. I will let you know what I like about it, what I bought, which room I slept in etc. etc. but I prefer to let photos speak for themselves, in most cases anyway!
The concept of Fabulous Places is not new, since 2008 the website covered my hometown of Derbyshire. The website was slightly different but the ethos has always been the same. I am so exciting to now be a blogger, sharing the places I have found during my visits to places around the UK as and when I visit them.
Fabulous Places began back in 2008 when I turned my list of shops, eateries, coffee shops etc into a website covering my home town of Derbyshire. Since the launch the website has grown into a hugely successful ‘where to go’ resource. I also present 3 hand selected food and gift events each year at The Roundhouse in Derbyshire.
I love to visit new places and would search out gorgeous little shops and places to go for coffee and cake, but finding them on the internet was always a task that rarely successful. Over time I found I had a directory of shops and eateries I would recommend. One Sunday morning over brunch my now husband suggested starting a website. My husband, the web developing superstar, built me my first website and from that day Fabulous Places became my career.
I hope you enjoy browsing the blog and find some fabulous places for you to visit. I would also love to hear your recommendations! If you know of a fabulous places, do get in touch!
