Devon

This weekend I took my third consecutive family trip to Devon. It was my granddad’s 90th birthday so a nice excuse to get away together and visit him. It helped that it was one of the warmest weekends in recent memory so a great time to get some fresh sea air.

This time we stayed a little outside Lee at Lower Campscott Farm. It was a shame to not be right by the beach, but it was a lovely little place – a real working farm with a herd of Dexter cattle, sheep, chickens who gave fresh eggs in the morning and a sweet pony. There was also a tea room/shop, communal green space for the 5 or 6 holiday cottages, and great views across the bay.

The walk to the beach, through fields and woods, was no hardship really.

Of course we still made it down to the beach too, and also did a day trip to a special little place that I’ll share more about soon..

    Beautiful pictures. I went to Devon and Cornwall at the end of June but the weather was cold and windy. At the end we spent more time in Dprset and West Sussex. I didn’t know Devon had such beautiful beaches. Thanks for the post . Anna

    Looks so pretty there. I haven’t been to that part of the world for a while, and never to Clovelly. So weird that you have to pay to get in though… Actually, the Hovis hill is in Shaftesbury in Dorset (unless there’s more than one). I found this out on a trip there last year – which came as a great surprise to me as I had assumed it was up-North!!
