As much as I love words (have you been following my latest tweets? If not, you’re missing out on discovering what my current favourite words are, what a treat! Follow @jennybennion1) which is somewhat of a pre-requisite when being a freelance copywriter. I also often have this guttural hankering for places with very few words indeed, so last weekend I packed myself, my husband and my dogs off to Ingleton in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
The Ingleton Waterfalls trail has been attracting visitors since 1855 (so the sign at the gate told me) and even in sideways rain with occasional hail, it’s a thoroughly exquisite, lung expanding and mind clearing walk. For 2.5 hours I simply roamed along the trail stopping to look at some amazing waterfalls (made even more ferocious by the added amount of extra rainwater!) and generally ended up simply feeling better than I had before. The two highlights of the walk were definitely clambering along the rocks to actually stand behind the Thornton Force Waterfall (so loud that even stood next to each other we had to shout to be heard) and getting up to the top of the trail to find nothing more than an amazing view, a beautifully utilitarian farm track, more hail and an ice cream van. Two 99′s later, we set off back down the other side of the trail.
So, ramble done, head happy, legs cold and wet, feet deliciously warm in new thermal socks, we made the thoroughly un-arduous quarter mile journey to the Marton Arms Pub/Hotel. ”Ahhhh went my legs as we shambled into the lovely old, and splendidly warm, pub. ‘Hooray’ went my belly as my eyes transferred the view of a line of real ale pumps and a fantastic menu. And ‘Smile’ went my mouth as the genuinely friendly owner showed us to our sweet little room with view of spring lambs actually springing! And here we hit the main point of today’s blog, go to the Marton Arms. The beer’s great, the food’s fantastic, the rooms are lovely and the staff are wonderful - excellent service, friendly, welcoming and just generally nice people.
So nothing about freelance copywriting, but I did have lovely time
I’m Jenny Bennion and I am a freelance copywriter.
I believe that there is an art to writing more than just ‘good’ copy. In fact, I want what I write to be more than just ‘copy’. So if you need something writing then I will aim to provide you with something that is interesting, informative and most of all effective.
