Valleyside Escapes makes TV debut on BBC Spotlight

Mar 29, 2024 | Valleyside News

Season six is officially here! Wow – what a way to start the season by Valleyside Escapes being featured on TV! This week we were interviewed by Kirk England, the Environment and Tourism Correspondent, from the local BBC TV Devon News programme Spotlight to discuss the tourism season ahead for a feature he was producing.

It was a pleasure to show Kirk around our Maple safari tent and he was able to witness the beautiful views! Fortunately the day he visited us it was dry and reasonably fine but the day the report was aired there had been snow along with a yellow weather warning – not a great start to Easter and the tourism season! You can watch the full report below but if you would like to skip to our bit Emma is interviewed at 3.30. Please note this is only available on BBC iPlayer for a limited amount of time! Having spent the first part of her career helping others being media trained it was a strange position to be the other side of the camera!

The weather is very mixed at the moment but as Emma said in the interview we are still very excited to welcome glamping guests for the Easter holidays and we are really looking forward to the season ahead! We encourage glampers to bring their wellies so they are fully prepared! Hopefully the April showers have arrived a month early and next month will be fine and dry!
