It turned out I was the only one to book this tour. So Natalie gave me and my husband a choice of several venues, and we had a lovely hike to an interesting place mentioned in Persuasion (Pinhay), and a great tour of Jane Austen sites in Lyme with many insights I would not have known on my own. We... More

Natalie provided a well-prepared walking tour throughout Lyme. She knows her Austen as well as other literary figures. Janeites and Austen beginners alike would enjoy the tour. I am convinced that hers is the right argument on which are the steps Louisa Musgrove foolishly jumped from!

The day was fantastic. Natalie was interesting and knowledgeable. All the major locations were covered and we got to see some truly staggering scenery which was a huge plus. The length of the tour was good and Natalie made us feel like we were a group of friends walking with each other. It was so relaxed. My only negative is... More

Natalie is a relaxed, informative and approachable tour guide and we thoroughly enjoyed her company. She obviously has a depth of knowledge and is an ideal person for the role. On a blustery cold but sunny lunch time with a small party of 'retirees' she gave value for money. We came away feeling 'Well, I didn't know that!' and feel... More

A fantastic tour, very interesting. Natalie is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and brings the book to life. If you are a fan of the French Lieutenant's Woman you will love this tour.

Thank you very much for your feedback and your kind comments. You're right - I do love that book - almost as much as the town it is set in. Best, Natalie More

I have taken two school groups on Natalie's Mary Anning walking tours. Natalie is knowledgeable and entertaining. She speaks to the children on their level, without ever patronising them. We all enjoyed every minute!

Natalie is approachable and relaxed and is willing and able to answer any questions we threw at her. She knows everyone and everything about Lyme. I loved the atmospheric readings from The French Lieutenant's Woman, read in situ looking over the Cobb and beneath the trees in the Undercliff. I particularly appreciated being able to look round John Fowles house... More

Obviously well researched by Natalie who has a wealth of local knowledge and a real enthusiasm and passion for her work. Really glad we found her and will definitely be rebooking should we revisit Dorset in... More

Loved the opportunity to walk in Jane Austen's footsteps and to think about why she selected those particular locations for Persuasion. Was also impressed with Natalie's background knowledge about Lyme a she pointed out which buildings were and were not present during Austen's time. We went on a second tour about the remarkable Regency fossil collector Mary Anning. The heavens... More
