3 Restaurant review: Gidleigh Park

Gidleigh Park and Michael Caines

Just when you think you must have made a wrong turning, you spot the sign encouraging you to keep going because your two-Michelin-starred destination is, indeed, just another mile along what is little more than a track. And its definitely worth keeping faith in your SatNav, because Gidleigh Park is rather special.

4 Discover our destination of the month: St. Barths


Fêted the world over for its exciting gastronomy and the tranquillity of its eight square miles of volcanic rock, St. Barths hit the headlines more recently for extensive hurricane damage. But it takes more than a 185mph wind called Irma to stop this island in its tracks and rebuilding is already underway.
