Claire has 20 years experience in the media and public relations industries and is the award-winning blogger behind Tin Box Traveller – one of the UK’s top family travel blogs – as well as the founder of Devon with Kids.

She moved to Devon in 2015 I couldn’t believe her luck to be living in one of the country’s most stunning holiday destinations. Claire and her family have now travelled all over the county for family days out and stays in some of the top tourist spots. 

After sharing a lot of West Country adventures on Tin Box Traveller, she decided that Devon was so awesome that she wanted to dedicate a new digital space to it. And in 2020, Devon with Kids was born.
