Horse and girl in a field


I'm Shannon. In a nutshell, I'm a 25-year-old who loves nothing more than spending my days outside and my evenings cosied up indoors.

Welcome to Tales from the Country, a countryside lifestyle blog for those who dream of escaping the hustle and bustle of life and about embracing all that comes from living in the British countryside.

Founded in 2012 my blog initially began as an online diary, chronicling the ups and downs that come with horse ownership. Since then my blog has changed name a couple of times and has evolved into a far more organised place. Featuring posts on a range of topics including horse ownership, outdoor adventures, UK Travel and book reviews, there are posts on enjoying the cosier elements that come with a slow country lifestyle too.

You can also find me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I also have a monthly newsletter featuring some exclusive behind-the-scenes moments, a few of my favourite items and much more.

There are a few posts that you might want to get started with, such as this one about how my horse helped my mental health or, if you're a fan of the outdoors, these outdoor adventure posts might be a good starting point. I've also got plenty of Travel posts if you're looking for some travel inspiration, or perhaps you're looking for your next read, in which case you should check out my book reviews.
