Snatching moments


So today we're off on a last-minute UK break! 

We're not going abroad this year, but needed a little break to get away from home and stretch our legs. We didn't, however, want to stretch our wallet too much so have booked a modest couple of nights in North Devon... Combe Martin to be exact. We didn't really have much of an idea where we wanted to go but had heard the area around Croyde and Ilfracombe is beautiful - on the outskirts of Exmoor with gorgeous beaches, it sounds perfect. So after browsing AirBnB's finest (cough, cheapest) offerings we settled on a few days in Combe Martin, and we're on our way!

Walks
Pubs
Cream teas
Books
Picnics

It doesn't get much better than that! I'm hoping the sun comes out, but made a last-minute raincoat purchase just to be safe. It's a pretty snazzy Trespass number and I anticipated pulling off cagoule-chic, but I just don't think it's to be. If you've been to the area and can recommend anywhere to eat, things to do or places to visit we'd be super grateful for any tips! You can leave a comment below, or drop me a tweet.  

Here's to a relaxing few days - see you on the other side!

  2. Oh gosh, that bit of Devon is the dream! We used to holiday there every year when I was little and it's just gorgeous. Go to the beach at Croyde and walk around the headland if you like that kind of things, then there is Saunton Sands, and Woolacombe/Putsborough beach - it's so pretty round there, I'm just a little bit jealous... :)
