What you need to know before your trail

Nestled in the quiet countryside sits the cosy village of Little Monkham, home of The Star and Sixpence, a renovated pub owned by sisters Sam and Nessie. As the locals welcome the new season, it appears that change is afoot in their tiny community, and not all of it for the better . . .

Nessie is moving in with her boyfriend, leaving Sam alone in the pub. But with the arrival of new chef Gabriel causing a flutter among the women of the village, it seems that Sam might not be so lonely after all. Having just recently come out of a relationship, Sam’s attraction to Gabe is inconvenient, but that’s the least of her worries when an unexpected visitor arrives at the pub, determined to stir up trouble.

As Gabe and Sam grow closer, Little Monkham’s latest arrival threatens to reveal a secret that will turn more than one world upside down. Can Sam and Nessie work through the fall out, or is it really last orders at The Star and Sixpence?

Travel Guide



Welcome to Little Monkham in Shropshire

This place might be fictional but once you visit, you won’t want to leave! There’s a little fictional village in Shropshire called Little Monkham and at its heart is the Star and Sixpence pub. The pub changes over the novels as do the characters – in fact it’s these comings and goings that provide the magic and the walls of the pub hear and see it all.

We visit the pub throughout the seasons – from the heartwarming, cosy log fires and wide armchairs in the winter, to the open doors and posh lemonades in the summer. This pub is the heart and soul of the community. And it’s a small but happy community in Little Monkham.

Take it to your heart as it will take yours!
