Air B&B Getaway
I like nothing more than getting away with my favourite person and celebrating New Years snuggled up in the Devon Countryside sounded like a great offer to me! So this is what we did! We stayed in a lovely Air B&B in Kingsbridge called the Stables and it was perfect for out one night stay. It had loads of space but was cosy and comfy too. There was a well-equipped kitchen which we used to make ourselves a nice meal accompanied by some champers.
We stayed in, the winds hollowing at the windows, and played games including draughts and monopoly. We must be getting old as we were falling asleep by 11pm and were wondering how we would make it till midnight to watch the fireworks! We did and toasted to another healthy, happy year together in 2018 🙂
After bacon buttys and clearing up we took the short (but rather flooded) journey to Torcross. We parked up and walked along the seafront admiring the views.
It was pretty chilly but there were loads of other people out taking in the fresh air and going for a NEw Years Day walk. We walked back on the other side of the road through nature reserve bit and took in the views over the lake.
It was really nice to walk along and contemplate the new year – what we wanted to achieve and what we were looking forward too. I enjoyed the hot flask of tea when we returned to the car too!
There’s also a big war tank to have a look at!
Lunch at Strete Gate
We drove further along the coast and stopped of at Strete Gate Beach for some lunch. We had packed a picnic and so enjoyed this whilst overlooking the beach. There was a family playing bowls which was quite amusing to watch. We didn’t have enough time to go for a wander here as we needed to get to Thurlestone in time for our afternoon tea but it looked like a lovely beach for a walk.
