A quite park between Paignton & Torquay which is part of the South West Coastal Path. This park usually has a quiet and peaceful atmosphere as there’s little to do here. The old facilities that were once here have been removed for some reason or other. Now all that’s here are flowers, shrubbery, trees and the remnants of the old gas works.
Tuckers Maltings is one of only four malt houses in the country which still produces malt in the traditional manner, supply over 30 breweries in the south west and annually throw what is probably the best selection of beers at any beer festival in the country #tuckersmaltings #beerfestival
On approach you see the lovely mill wheel and building covered in ivy. I had no idea how big the grounds were. When the food arrived it was delicious and I really couldn’t fault it and while you eat you do have company from the free range chickens and peacocks for entertainment. It caters for anyone and everyone and certainly a place I’d be more than happy to return.
Once the home of the famous writer Agatha Christie, now owned by the National Trust. It has hardly been touched over the years and offers a glimpse into the private life of the Queen of Crime and her family.
A fun day out for all the family. If you like your sports, flowers or traditional games the Scoriton Summer Fair has it all. #Scoriton #Dartmoor
The oldest pub in Dartmouth, though It wouldn’t surprise me if you were to walk right on past it as there is next to no signage, just a small sign leaning against a plant by the door. Once inside though your met with old wooden beams, two fireplaces and very friendly staff.
Close to the historic Bayards Cove and the ferry across the river to Kingswear, this is another favourite of mine especially on a sunny day, it has one of the best view of any pub in Dartmouth.
The oldest building in Dartmouth dating from 1380 and still retaining many of its original interior features, oak beams, leaded lights and big stone fireplace
Tucked away behind Paignton harbour Fairy Cove is very well sheltered from Southwesterly winds, popular with local families and dog walkers.
Dartmouth harbour is a deep water natural harbour and one of the finest in the UK with a long history of maritime usage #Dartmouth #Harbour
