Where is it?

Tofino on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.

Apart from its beautiful scenery and rugged coastline, with beaches to die for, there's an essence of time standing still there. Its simplicity was a huge part of its charm and life seemed easy and slow. It also reminded me a lot of Scotland too, as did much of British Columbia.

Why do you go there?

I went to relax in between a hectic filming schedule and the minute I landed at Vancouver Island I felt my shoulders drop.

How often do you go?

We went twice but I would jump at the chance to go at any opportunity again.

How did you discover it?

When I was filming the ITV series, The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco, out there I kept asking: where is a must-visit place? And the same answer kept coming back. Tofino. It didn't disappoint.

What's your favourite memory?

The journey to get there is part of its charm. You take a small sea plane from Vancouver and fly over the most stunning views of lakes and luscious greenery until you land on water and taxi slowly to a tiny airport on the island. It's incredibly romantic.

Then there's a short drive to Tofino through gorgeous small towns full of character, lined with dense woods and forests. Tofino itself feels like it is perpetually on holiday. You can walk for miles along its vast open beaches, stopping for drinks at local shacks and bars.

One evening we came across a beach party where people were building camp fires, playing music and we stayed there until the sun came up. It was magical.

Who do you take?

I went with my husband Davy, but I want to take all my family and friends.

What do you take?

A good book, music, walking boots and a bikini.

What do you leave behind?

Stress and the constraints of time.
