Our Devon Bucket List

Although we have been living in Devon for over 6 years now I still don’t feel like we have seen half of what this beautiful County has to offer.

I thought it would be fun to create a Devon bucket list. I’ve included some slightly more unusual places as well as a few tourist spots. We prefer to discover hidden places that are off the main tourist hotspots. Continue reading “Our Devon Bucket List”

We generally sail from the River Yealm to Fowey in one go and on average it takes us about 4 hours, although we did sail straight from Fowey to our home port once which took around 9 hours!
