Regional Reporter - South West England
Harriet lives on a dairy farm in Somerset with her partner and their dogs. Life on the Mendips is a combination of stunning, peaceful, and exceptionally lonely – so, she likes to talk! With her dog of a lifetime, Tally (not that anyone is picking favourites) at her side they enjoy trying new things, and will turn their hand to whatever comes their way. Having grown up in the Cotswolds, life in Somerset is still a fairly new venture to Harriet and Tally so there is plenty to be seen, learnt and shared.
