“I find the clutter of it overwhelming,” she told Woman & Home. “I think I’m not meant for a city… that isn’t the real me. The real me is quiet.

“There is, without a doubt, the beauty here. I can do nothing but connect with that. It makes me calm, it makes me happier and it sort of enthuses my mind with better ways of thinking.

She added that the area reminds her of her mother, who died in 2012 at the age of 77.

“I’ve gone back to where my family are,” said Dawn. “The sense of my mum is there and that is home for me.”
