Our Break In Devon

Sunday, February 24, 2013

I thought I’d do a quick picture-heavy post to show you some of the images from our recent break in Devon. I always like to be pretty active when I’m away from London and having the dog means that there’s no excuse not to take some lovely picturesque walks by the sea… Even if it’s a still a tad bit chilly and I have to walk along looking a bit Eskimo-like in my puffer coat!

We spent most of our days within an hour-or-so drive of Plymouth, and spent quite a fair bit of that time eating. As. Per. Usual.
We tried out some dog friendly places, such as Saveurs French bakery and the Millbrook Inn (which I found on the Budweiser Budvar Top 50 Gastropub Awards). I’m going to review them both on Dog Friendly UK sometime soon, so keep an eye out for those posts. You really don’t have to have a dog to go to either of them and I’d definitely suggest a visit if you are near either, in the South Hams district of Devon.

We also ate at the new Gary Rhodes restaurant at the Plymouth Dome whilst we were away. Unfortunately, I have to say it was a very odd experience… I really wanted to like it, but I’m not sure it’s a place I’d recommend to anyone who really loves food. It was great value for money, but just not my cup of tea, with some slightly odd dish accompaniments that, in my opinion, were a little pointless.

Anyway, we had a great time and I’m looking forward to going back again some time in the warmer months.  I’m gaining some serious winter podge, so this week will all be about hitting the treadmill again and cutting back on those nasty things we call calories. *Face of gloom*
