Valentines day is upon us - Flowers and chocolates are at the forefront of every supermarket. Here at Peregrine, we believe that one of the best and most romantic things to do on Valentine’s day is to forget everything and just get back to nature.

There’s nothing quite like a relaxing romantic stroll with your partner for Valentine’s Day. The lush green countryside is perfect for a quiet reflection on how in love you are…or maybe the fresh air will just contribute to an argument about who’s walking too fast or which path to take to get back to the car park. Either way, you can be happy you have done some exercise and spent some quality time with each other.

Here are four of our favourite tried and tested romantic walks around the UK.

Lulworth Cove - Dorset

The beautiful white pebble beach and crystal clear waters of Lulworth Cove is the perfect coastal walk, set on the Jurassic coast. Formed by the combined forces of the sea and a river swollen by melting ice at the end of the last Ice Age. Lulworth Cove is an English Heritage site, full of history. Dogs are permitted on the left side of the slipway so be sure to bring them along to take in the scenery on this romantic walk.

Pen Y Fan - Brecon Beacons

This one is certainly made for the adventurers - Rising above the Brecon Beacons is Pen Y Fan stands at 886m high. This makes it the highest point in Southern Britain with the breath taking views across mid Wales. You don’t have to be a professional hiker to tackle the summit - the easiest route taking just over 2 hours with plenty of kissing gates along the way.

Cheddar Gorge - Somerset

Cheddar Gorge is one of England's most iconic and spectacular landscapes. Just 45 minutes from our home town of Bristol this circular walk makes for the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle. What better way to end a walk then to pop into a local pub, we recommend The Bath Arms Hotel in Cheddar to quench your thirst.

Friars Crag - The Lake District

Nature at it’s best. Home of the memorials to Ruskin and Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley, one of the founders of the National Trust. The painter, John Ruskin described the view as one of the three most beautiful scenes in Europe, you can’t argue with that! The 8 mile level trail circles the lake, leading you through woodland and marshes.

Peregrine Below Zero

Here at Peregrine we want to make sure our jumpers and coats stand up to the test of the most extreme weather. We thought there would be no better way to test this than by getting in touch with our friends at family run business Husky Tours Lapland. They face some of the harshest winter weather and with over 80 huskies to look after there is no escaping it.

Firstly could you give me the history of Husky Tours? What made you decide to start a sledding business?

In December 2005 I was working for an adventure company that sent me to Kiruna, Sweden. I had a group that went for a husky trip, where I met my current husband. He was one of the guides and he took me on the ride of my life!! From there I ‘missed’ my flight home and settled in Norway for a little while untill we could find neutral ground in Svappavaara. We worked as freelancers for many the other dog sledding companies in the area at that time, we had more and more requests to run trips on our own. Having the knowledge of how others run their companies we decided to try things a little differently. Create a company to share our passion with other adventurers, and try to live the outdoor lifestyle with our dogs and family!

We’ve heard Lapland can reach below - 40 degrees, how do you deal with/prepare for the coldest months?

Here we have experienced minus 48! The way we prepare is to layer.. and layer and layer! This is where merino wool comes in!! It’s all about dressing properly! We run our trips at all temperatures, so it’s imperative we have excellent gear. Keeping your neck and head warm is really important. as is your feet with warm wool socks.

What sort of different husky tours do you offer?

From our sit back and relax tours where guests get to sit on the sled and just enjoy the ride and the scenery (particularly the amazing aurora borealis in the evening) to tours where the guests get to help harness the dogs, drive them together with a friend and overnight on our weekend trips. On our combo trip, there’s a combination of both sitting and driving. One person sits and the other person drives the team of 5 dogs. Halfway the guests get to swap over so they get the best of both worlds. For those that want to drive their own team of dogs this is also available as just a day trip, an overnight tour staying at our homely lodge or a weekend trip!

What’s your favourite part about husky sledding and why?

The incredible feeling of freedom. When you are on the sled, with 8 dogs in front of you, complete silence, starlit sky, aurora borealis above you..it doesn’t get any better than this!

PEREGRINE X U.W.E Fashion Comm’s

Peregrine Clothing

Online video is fast becoming the dominant way for consumers to satisfy their entertainment and information needs so it has become fundamental that independent businesses utilize the medium for content marketing.

Fashion and video have always married together well as a means to capture the brands handwriting and narrative and also to sell the garments therefore we are thrilled that for the second year running we were invited to work with the University of The West of England and their BA Fashion Communication students on an exciting video development project.

The context of the module was to create a short fashion film representing our Spring Summer 2019 collection which features sustainable fabrics like acrylic created from post consumer plastic recovered from the sea and certified organic cotton jackets finished with a natural Bees Wax dressing for waterproofing.

Consumers are spending more time looking at videos and a fascinating fact taken directly from the students brief is that in the past year 40% of Youtube users turned to the platform to learn more about a product before buying

We visited the students to talk them through the brands D.N.A as British, Heritage brand with a modern twist, and also to discuss the SS19 range in more detail exploring the stylistic choices and the shapes and colours used. The student groups then visited our Headquarters to select and collect their chose garments to be shot and styled for their shorts. The students did conceptual research looking at a broad range of subjects from fashion films to shop visits and journal work where they highlighted the work they would be drawing on and that which they would be discarding. They also did further research into us, the brand and our values, identity and competitors.

A few weeks later we went back to U.W.E and reviewed the rough drafts of the films paying close attention to the styling, tone and themes captured. We are sure you will agree that the calibre of the work was strong and compelling and it was exciting to have a younger generation interpreting and creating on behalf of the brand.  

Below is some feedback from Codie Scott who was a member of the winning group on what she enjoyed and found challenging about the project: -

This project brief has been my favourite so far and film is generally not my ‘go to’ but has thoroughly inspired me go a little further with it, thinking outside of the box and working as a team. When it came to challenges I thought my answer would have been working in a team of people who have thoroughly different ideas and styles, however I think our ideas couldn’t have fitted together better.
Its difficult to say because as a group we feel that what we created we have come to love (and you never are fully satisfied with your own work) I think our biggest challenge was fitting in time schedules, other uni work and outside employment, we underestimated how much time certain things would take us so I really would probably say as a group our challenge was time management.

Big thanks to Codie, Annaliese, Amelia and Leah for the beautiful stills below and their hard work on their video production: @codielscott @fletcherannaliese @amelia.moya.art @leahdelahunty_uwe

The Christmas Jumper

Peregrine Clothing

There’s a chill in the air, the nights have drawn in and (dare we say it) Christmas is just around the corner. This is the perfect season for knitwear, so why does the phrase ‘Christmas jumper’ provoke such trepidation?

Contrary to popular opinion, Christmas jumpers don’t have to be gaudy and unsustainable. They can be stylish and loved all year round!

Based on a traditional Scandinavian pattern, our Larsen Crew neck is the perfect subdued alternative. The Larsen is crafted from Merino Wool and made in England. This jumper is durable, temperature regulating and made from pure natural fibres. Perfect for those chilly winter evenings.
