We were recently contacted by a lovely lady who was wondering where the best places for fairy watching were.
By installing a Fairy Door or Elf Door in your home, the little people know they are always welcome to pay you a visit, but during the day they do love to play outside amongst the long grass and tall flowers or in a tree hollow.
So we have complied a list of our Top Ten places to find fairies and elves at play.
Warning: Fairy watching is very different to fairy hunting, obviously you will need to look very hard but please tread with care! For your best chance of spotting the fairies, we recommend that you dress in colourful clothes, whisper very quietly and sprinkle Magic Dust as you go.
