My name is Steph and I am the creator of Destination Downtime.

I’ve been fortunate enough to spend my childhood surrounded by countryside in rural Somerset, and have spent the last three years located by the sea in beautiful Dorset. The many brilliant days out and staycations I have enjoyed in the United Kingdom inspired me to create my blog ‘Destination Downtime’ encouraging people to explore more of what is on their doorstep, here in the UK.

I come from a marketing background, graduating university in 2018 with a First Class BA (Hons) in Marketing with Advertising Management, and a further 2 years working as a Social Media Manager which has provided me with some fantastic skills. The most valuable experience I have gained has come from building my blog and working as a Freelance Marketing Manager. I’ve built an engaged audience from zero to 10k and learnt so much about content writing, SEO, branding, and building an online community which I can’t wait to share with you.
