Devon Adventure: Coastal Coves and Pretty Places

Hello and welcome back!

I've just returned from a week in Devon and I was going to daily blog each day like I did when I went to Scotland.  However, me being such a scatter-brained lady, I forgot to take my laptop away and therefore I had no way to document our adventures! So, instead I'm going to document a few days of activities per blog post to catch you all up on where I've been and what I've been up to!

Myself and my parents rented a beautiful coastal apartment for the week, overlooking the sea. We were in Bigbury-on-Sea which meant we could also see the lovely Burgh Island from our balcony too (so, naturally, I was singing Ben Howard songs all week).

We leaped straight into it and went exploring early in the morning of the day after we arrived. We found a beautiful cove called Ayrmer's Cove and my dad and I spent the morning clambering over seaweed covered rocks, finding rock pools and exploring.

However, this cove wasn't quite what we were looking for, so after an hour or two, we moved on to find somewhere else. That's when we fell across Hope Cove, another lovely little place that's well worth a visit.

Thankfully we were also blessed with the weather!

The following day we dud a bit of inland exploring and wandered into Totnes and then went on further to Dartmoor. This area of Devon is honestly the loveliest, everywhere we visited was beautiful!!

Somehow whenever I go somewhere and  I see flowers, they always end up in my hair. Dartmoor is covered in this beautiful purple heather and I just couldn't resist. This gorgeous rocky place was a little discovery we found en route to Hound Tor medieval village. We ended up never finding the village and we just spent the afternoon rock climbing and taking pretty pictures. It was an awful lot of fun!

Totnes is also definitely worth a visit. It's one of those towns with a real free spirit/hippie-ish vibe, wih organic food and outdoorsy shops everywhere. I was in heaven, I'd definitely recommend visiting there if you're in the area!

Well, that's today's update. Pop back tomorrow to read about my absolute favourite day of the holiday!

Until then,
