…it’s holiday time! In August, a general lightheartedness prevails while everyone makes the most of the summer break. If you’re planning a trip and thinking of taking your dog, read our Ruff Guide on page 48 for suggestions of places to stay and what to consider. Staying closer to home? Then you might like our ideas for creating a garden room (page 78), making your own lollies and ice creams (page 154) or organising a post-harvest picnic (page 38). We are also taking creative inspiration from two immensely talented women – Clare Curtis captures the Suffolk landscape and the views on her allotment to turn into striking linocut prints (page 98); while Felicity Irons, who we first featured in 1997, is still plying her trade as one of the last…

Malham YORKSHIRE August is the perfect time to visit Britain’s largest county. Not only will you find festivals and activities (including Yorkshire Day and Malham Show), there’s also a good chance that the fickle weather will work in your favour and illuminate the famous landscape in glorious sunshine. Base your visit in the village of Malham, near the southern edge of the Dales. A settlement since the Iron Age, it’s surrounded by dramatic limestone scenery, including the cliffs of Malham Cove and Gordale Scar. WHAT TO SEE Visit Malham Cove – from the top of the 80m cliff there is a spectacular view across Yorkshire. Walk over the limestone pavement and, if you’re lucky, see the peregrine falcons that raise their young here: there are walks for all abilities and on the way back…

tales from the blacksmith’s cottage

Downsizing from this family-size cottage – with its dining room, office for each of my parents, larder, outhouse and double garage – to something more manageable necessitates a clear-out on a grand scale: it’s time for a garage sale. For my father and me, this is catharsis: get rid, start over… ah, that’s better.

He’s a war correspondent: he heads towards wars. “What stuff?” I ask, holding the phone to my shoulder as I decant his collection of Just William books onto the garage shelves. “Everything,” he whimpers. “Toys, music – I’ve got all my stuff there.” My father holds up a box of teddy bears and points towards…
