We have some pre-Christmas availability, and bookings are already coming in for school holidays next year. So far it’s been a mild winter, great for beach and canal walks…a vibrant blue sky makes a big difference but Sandymouth is lovely whatever the weather. If you want to see Devon/Cornwall when the beaches are empty and the coast is desolate, now is the time…

Fun in the pool…

Fun in the pool…

After the rush of the summer, once the children return to school, we usually have a little lull, time to recalibrate. It is an added bonus for us to then be able to use one of the pools. The opportunity doesn’t last long, so we strike while we can. As holiday cottages go, having an integral pool is pretty good, because, on a miserable wet day, you can have family fun without going anywhere, so you lucky people get this included with your booking.

Review from Jeni Chown – 29th July, 2017

We’ve just come back from our break and it’s been great…

A big garden area for the children…huge cottage…well equipped…own swimming pool definitely recommended…

The weather didn’t bother us!

Managed a BBQ on a lovely day …the pool was great! Ollie wanted to move in…

Westward Ho! Via Wuzzy

Westward Ho! Via Wuzzy

2016-09-08-15-01-27 2016-09-08-13-26-49 2016-09-08-13-26-05 2016-09-08-13-25-55 2016-09-08-13-12-57Had a day out at Westward Ho! the other day, but with a difference. A lovely dog walk from Northam via Wuzzy. This was a new one on me, yet high above the beach is The Kipling Tors which lead you to the South West Coast Path.

To the west of the town is a gorse-covered hill where Kipling and his friends smoked pipes and cigars and read books by Huskin, Carlyle and Whitman in their hut in the middle of the densest patch of gorse bushes. This hill, the famous ‘Wuzzy’ of ‘Stalky & Co.’, his story about a boys’ boarding school based in North Devon, was eventually dedicated to the author and renamed Kipling Tors. In 1938 it was given to the National Trust by the Kipling Memorial Fund. It is well worth a walk simply for the views. Great dog walking country, too.
