North Devon - June 2017

On Saturday morning the skies were grey but it didn't deter us, we were up early ready for our walk into Woolacombe via the pretty coastal village of Mortehoe. 

Once we arrived in Woolacombe we rewarded ourselves with a lovely full English breakfast and coffee before having a wander around.

Again, we cheated and got the bus back to the site in the afternoon (it was uphill all the way after all!).

We spent the afternoon packing up ready to head home after our short break.

Our next booked trip isn't that far away (thankfully).  In just a few short weeks we will be heading north for a week in the Lake District.

North Devon - June 2017

Due to a work commitment and the inclement weather we decided to cancel our 3 night stay in Bristol.  Not to be defeated though, we re-booked 2 nights in north Devon and stayed on the lovely C&MC site just outside Woolacombe (Willingcott).  It was lovely and peaceful too.

We arrived on the Thursday afternoon and spent it chilling out before wandering down to the local pub (a 10 minute stroll directly from the campsite) for a few pints and a nice meal.

On Friday it was dry so we decided to walk into Ilfracombe along the cycle path/old railway line.  It runs directly from the site and is about 4 miles, all downhill on the way too! We got caught in a couple of hefty showers but once we'd got into Ilfracombe it was dry and sunny.

We stopped off for morning coffee and ended up staying for lunch before wandering around the lovely harbour (the home of the Damien Hurst statue Verity - horrible in my opinion!), the little town with it's quirky shops and the gardens near to the Landmark Theatre.  We cheated and got the bus back to the site where we spent the evening.
