Devon August 2013
Sunday 4th - Friday 9th August 2013
A trip to Devon: three nights staying with Dad, and two nights at the Hotel Endsleigh.
Arriving in Devon
Sunday 4th August 2013
Got the train from London to Exeter in the morning, then had lunch at the Beer Engine, followed by a visit to Janie's Mum.
Exeter, Reddaway's Cider and Teignmouth
Monday 5th August 2013
Spent the end of the morning / early afternoon shopping in Exeter (I bought a new tweed jacket!). In the early evening we visited Reddaway's Cider, and after that went for a stroll around Teignmouth.
Around the Exstuary
Tuesday 6th August 2013
A circular trip around the Ex estuary on foot, by boat, and by train, taking in Topsham and Exmouth on the way.
Dartmoor and Hotel Endsleigh
Wednesday 7th August 2013
Picked up a hire car in Exeter, and then drove across Dartmoor (stopping off at the Warren House Inn where we said goodbye to Dad and Janie) to the Hotel Endsleigh, where we'd be staying the next two nights.
Hotel Grounds, Millook Haven and Tavistock
Thursday 8th August 2013
Spent the morning exploring the hotel grounds which was lovely - should really have just stayed there all day! In the afternoon we ventured out to find the beach hut we have a photo of on our wall, at Millook Haven near Bude. Also fit in a visit to Launceston on the way back to the hotel. In the evening we popped into Tavistock for dinner.
Friday 9th August 2013
Lovely breakfast outdoors at the Hotel Endsleigh before checking out. Then drove back to Exeter, dropped off the hire car, had lunch at the Imperial in Exeter, then got the train back to London.
