Or even better, ask the discerning, style-savvy locals who hang out on Instagram. Each of these gorgeous indie campsites has been personally recommended (or tried out by me) and chosen for their locations, facilities, views and atmosphere — with plenty of glamping options for camping softies too.Read more

Happy St David’s Day! Happy Spring! Happy first day of the month! And happy days to one very lucky Muddy reader who is about to float off with a luxury weekend at Another Place The Lakes in Ulswater, The Lake District.

Tonight, I will be downing tools, turning off my phone, and commandeering the sofa, remote and wine from 9pm – 11pm as not one, but two, fantastic TV shows arrive on the small screen.
First up, at 9pm on BBC1 is The Replacement, a three-part thriller. Original Muddy Editor Hero was lucky enough to go to a preview screening of the first episode and, believe me, it is edge-of-your seat stuff.Read more

So who better to do a monthly round-up of her favourite new releases?Read more

Any of these take your fancy?Read more
