The wanderers

About Us

We're explorers at heart 

WestCountry Wanderlust is the passion project of two best friends. Neither of us were born and bred in the West Country, but both of us have forged families, careers and a lifestyle with the West Country at the centre. 

We're foodies, explorers, content creators and guides. We have explored so much of the South West and want a place to share the incredible things we've uncovered.

If you want to experience the West Country like a local, to uncover its secrets and wander off the beaten path, you've come to the right place. 

James Brooks 

Founder & Adventurer

As a West Country resident, I've explored the best it has to offer. My passion now is to share what I know, the insider knowledge so that people can explore like a local. I've been writing and capturing my adventures across social media for well over a decade now. My favourite thing about the West Country is it's amazing foodie destinations and stunning beaches.

Family Man and Writer 

I grew up in a city in the midlands. I moved to the West Country in 2009 and fell in love. Big open spaces, history and amazing food are what keep me here. I love exploring through the eyes of my children as they learn about the landscape, the natural environment and our connection to it over the years.
