Heading up this sneak peek is the village of Padstow.

A gorgeous wee fishing town on Cornwall’s northern coast, it all started a getting a bit busier when chef Rick Stein established a restaurant there. But its none the less charming for it.

Neil McAllister visits this week, taking the time to explore the thriving harbour and nearby scenery.

Small Matters

There’s a lovely feature from renowned nature writer Polly Pullar in this week’s issue, too. Polly’s talking about the wee wonders of the natural world, recalling a safari where everybody was fixated on finding the “big five”, but missing out on all the little things nature has to offer.

Kirsty Wark

We’ve also had a chat to TV’s Kirsty Wark. Best known for presenting hard-hitting current affairs programme “Newsnight”, Kirsty’s talking to us about the release of her new book, “The House By The Loch”. (You can read Fiction Ed Shirley’s review of the book here).

On top of all this, it’s National Picnic Week, so Cookery Ed Marion has pulled together some gorgeous recipes for outdoor eating.

In our health section, Colleen Shannon is talking about dealing emotionally with cancer.

All that, and we’ve got another Pan Macmillan coupon for you! With it, you can pick up Pam Weaver’s new book for just £2.99 from WHSmith.
