This holiday will involve short sessions of gentle garden work on the South Garden with refreshments, evening talks and a trip to Bicton Botanical Gardens.

The multi-award winning South Devon Railway (SDR), a seven mile line which runs along the stunning valley of the River Dart between Buckfastleigh and Totnes, is one of Devon’s and the West Country’s best loved tourist attractions and is the longest established steam railway in the south west. When you ride the South Devon Railway you can also visit the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm and Dartmoor Otters &Buckfast Butterflies: 3 great attractions, 1 amazing day!

2. Exeter, with a visit to Exeter cathedral and Exeter’s underground passages.

Exeter is a city that inspires. A place with a rhythmic beat. Most of all, it is somewhere to get away from it all. A place to get up, get out and visit. There really is so much to be explored, from the city’s rich heritage and culture to the miles of quayside walks. Modern day amenities, cafes, bistros and shops are abundant and make for a splendid atmosphere whilst out venturing.

Exeter Cathedral dates back over 900 years, but there has been a Christian presence on the site we know today as Cathedral Green since Roman times. Explore this ancient place and discover the stories of the beautiful vaulted ceiling, stunning stained glass, and intricate carvings of stone and wood. Exeter’s Underground Passages were built in the 14th & 15th centuries to bring a supply of fresh drinking water into the city. A visit to Exeter’s Underground Passages includes a 10 minute film presentation, a 25 minute tour underground and an opportunity to explore the interactive exhibition.

3. Theatre trip to Sidmouth Manor Pavilion

(or, depending what is on at the theatre, a visit to Sidmouth Norman Lockyer Observatory)

Sorry, no making beds, preparing vegetables or queueing for the bathroom these days — but we will queue for dinner... and woe betide anyone not sitting male/female or saying yes or no at the yes-no dinner!

About Janet Dowling

Janet Dowling: Storyteller, Writer, Life Story Coach

I am Janet Dowling (as if you hadn’t guessed!). If you stir the pot that is me, bubbling up from the depths are a storyteller, a writer, a community storyteller, a life story coach and a creative supervisor. Good things, as they say, come in small packages. But that is a whole other story!

I’m also researching material for Devon Ghost Tales, a book to send shivers down your spine. It’s a slow process, as I can’t work on it after dark because I manage to scare myself! Mind you, looking in a mirror does that! Devon Ghost Tales will be published by the History Press in October 2018.

I work with metaphor and storytelling to enable people to explore new ideas, discover different perspectives of themselves and others and create their own changes in their lives.

I am passionate about the role that metaphors and stories play in our lives, and the opportunities that they open up for all of us. Stories enable listeners to learn about different ways to overcome struggles and adversity in their own way, to explore different perspectives on life, to give them hope for change and eventually fulfil their life goals.

Sometimes we have to have some magic just to make the leap in our imaginations, so that we can envisage a future that can be different. Knowing more about how the future could be, gives us the strength to change our own paths.

Programme

Monday through to Thursday 10 to12.30 pm (2 and half hour sessions)..Afternoons are free to do what you wish

How to learn a story to tell

How to tell a story

Putting flesh on the bones of a story

Preparation for the story telling performance if you wish on the final evening.
