Find out what Devon Life magazine has in store for readers in its February issue...

Surfing in big business in Devon but how much do you know about its history? In the February issue of Devon Life magazine Sally Parkin of the Original Surfboard Company reveals her fascination for researching the sport.

There’s also a feature on Bill the Potter, a former monk who now has a ceramics workshop in Swimbridge near Barnstaple.

And there’s news of how you can dine at talented North Devon chef Thomas Carr’s new Ilfracombe restaurant for just £10 during the Exmoor Food Fest.

A Devon field is the focus for a unique photography project featured in the February issue of Devon Life magazine.

For 12 months photographer Matt Austin returned to the same field and captured the scene as a year unfolded. The fascinating images of the changing seasons form a major feature in the magazine and dominate the cover.

There’s a look back 160 years to the February of 1855 when mysterious hoofed footprints appeared across a swathe of south Devon, from Topsham to Totnes, sparking rumours that the Devil himself had been at large.

And with Valentine’s Day on the horizon the magazine has a romantic feel with features on couples who fell in love in Devon, a gift guide for lovers and advice on how to tie the perfect Valentine’s bouquet.

Plus there’s a chance to win a fabulous Valentine’s hamper from The Shops at Dartington and a romantic hotel stay.
