We managed to have an early summer holiday visiting family in Devon last week and decided to stay in one of the excellent Airbnb locations. There was the most perfect place just where we needed it, a Rustic Chalet with two bedrooms, lounge/kitchen with woodburner (which we didn't use due to be such lovely weather!) and bathroom all set in amazing grounds, with a games room in the bar ideal for rainy days.
Anthony the host was so welcoming and allowed us to use all the grounds with swings, zip wire and a huge trampoline which the boys escaped to as soon as they woke up.
This was our view from the bedroom one morning...heavenly!
With such glorious weather we visited many places with family, my father in-law Jim, partner Jane and lovely Polly moved to Kinsgsbridge last year so they knew some fantastic spots to take in the views.
The wildlife was amazing at the chalet, does anyone know what this odd bug is which was lurking in the hedgerows?
Of course we had to visit the beaches of Devon, so many to choose from. The boys learnt from their granddad how to throw the perfect flat stones for skimming across the flat sea. Then we all decided to draw faces on them, spot the Jane Foster one!
The evening light was so restful, with swallows flying around us nesting in the alcoves of the farmhouse roof.
Definitely take in the cliff walks if you venture down, great places to blow away those cobwebs, we really enjoyed the walk from National Trust Overbecks to East Soar Outdoor Experience, perfect place to refuel on tea and cake before heading back.
As you can see, I let my hair down!
It was very hard to tear ourselves away ......wish we were there!
