Katie loves nothing better than trekking up the Sugar Loaf mountain with the family to indulge in the breathtaking views of the Monmouthshire valley… (also nothing to do with the vineyard conveniently placed at the foot of the mountain!)
Caffè della Seggiovia in Sauze d’Oulx. John’s favourite bar in his favourite village, tucked away in the Italian Alps. It’s a small friendly place where they bring you free homecooked Italian food and snacks while you have a few drinks, invariably under bright blue skies surrounded by the snowy mountains.
When Colin isn’t working he is never happier than being with his wife Michelle, their 2 Labradors and too many horses. He still competes and enjoys the thrill of show jumping and x country.
Dans favourite place is anywhere with his partner, whether that’s chilling watching Netflix or out having adventures and travelling together.
Louise is most happy when spending time with her husband and family. She is an animal lover, especially dogs and given the chance, would have a house full of them. She also enjoys watching movies at the cinema accompanied with a big bar of chocolate!
Lauren is happiest on a shopping spree with her friends. When not trawling the shops she’s at home with her 4 dogs, 2 cats and 4 beard dragons!
St James’ Park – Newcastle – as a long-suffering Newcastle United supporter Phils favourite place is the meca that is St James’s park!
An adventurer at heart, Julie is happiest while on holiday with her friends, be it in the wilds of Mayo, Ireland, or Washington D.C in the USA. Throw in a tasty food place and it is smooth sailing from there!
Keiron is happiest whilst in the Sea, be that dipping his toe during a beach walk with his partner or whilst Scuba Diving in the warmer months (which is ironic given his allergy to Fish).
Catherine loves being in the woods or at the beach with her husband and golden retriever Luna.
Cerys’ happy place is anywhere with her husband and son, however if that place also happens to have ice cream then she’ll be smiling from ear to ear!
Ellie loves nothing better than visiting Tintern, Wye Valley near Monmouthshire for the breath taking scenery. A little haven of escapism!
Outdoors in nature, especially in the mountains.
Jim loves to be in, next to or just generally within sight of the sea be that surfing the waves, walking on the beach or spending time with the family.
Alun’s favourite place is Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower Peninsula. He makes sure to visit at least once every year with his two teenage boys and Wally, his faithful dog.
Jason loves when he’s at home fixing broken hardware with endless amount of open browser tabs and a cup of tea/coffee attached to his hand.
Anne-Marie’s favourite place is the Arctic. With each dropping degree in temperature, she gets a degree more alive (though this has only been tested to about –20 so there are probably limits…)
Ciara is happiest when sampling her favourite street food or waking up to a nice new view in the VW (weather permitting!).
Rhys loves nothing more than going home to help out on his family farm, it’s only 15 minutes from where he lives now but is definitely his favourite place. After that it would be Italy, especially the Amalfi Coast, simply stunning even if their roads are terrifying.
Kris’ favourite places are the kitchen and the dining table and would gladly spend his life simply moving between the two only venturing outside to light a barbecue.
James is happiest when exploring the Welsh forestry, pure escapism, get as far away from civilisation as possible and be surrounded by the amazing natural environment we have. Usually accompanied by small people carrying sticks.
Paige is happiest sat on the benches over looking the iconic Roath Park lake lighthouse armed with her coffee and paints! (when the sun comes out… maybe even an ice cream!)
Holly is happiest on the beach with her family. In the wind, rain or shine there is nothing better than the sound of the waves and the feeling of sand underfoot.
Andy likes to be amongst nature or great design (preferable both), whether DIYing, walking, swimming or cycling, though in all instances he’ll want it to be in the sunshine and ending up in a good pub. Or three.
Matt’s absolute favourite day out is a trip to Durdle Door beach along with his family, dog, dinghy, body boards and plenty of food!!
David’s favourite place is his home, a tranquil lakeside property on a farm in the Cotswolds. Its location brings together all his hobbies.
Jack was once a music producer & produced tracks with artists across the country and over seas. Jack enjoys long walks, cold swims and most recently, golfing.
Victoria loves nothing more than going to New Quay in Wales on sunny days. Sitting on the sea front with an ice cream from Crème Pen Cei and watching the Dolphins out at sea.
