Last weekend we went along to House of Marbles in Bovey Tracey to see Santa in his grotto. Here’s what we got up to… Continue reading “Santa’s Grotto at House of Marbles in Devon”
It’s currently the Summer holidays here in Devon so to help keep the kiddies entertained I created a Devon bucket list. It has a few touristy places on it but it’s mainly hidden gems located throughout Devon. Continue reading “Venford Falls The Hidden Double Waterfall in Devon”
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”

Last weekend we had some fantastic weather. The sun was shining and it was very hot. We decided to head over to the Yealm on Saturday with the intention of stopping off at Cellar Bay so the kiddies could have a swim in the sea. Continue reading “A Day at Cellar Bay”
Last weekend we decided to head more inland as the weather wasn’t great for coastal cruising. One of our favourite places to go is up to Calstock in Cornwall on the River Tamar. Continue reading “An Adventure in the Tamar Valley”
We were really lucky to have some fantastic weather in April so we made the most of it by going away most weekends on the boat.
One particular weekend we went over to the Yealm. We picked the kids up from school on Friday and we went straight down to the boat. We spent the evening on our mooring and put our new bbq to the test. Continue reading “Fun on the River Yealm”
Even after living in Devon for nearly 6 years now we still haven’t seen half of what this beautiful county has to offer. Our excuse is that it’s a huge area and one of the largest counties in England.
Since we have been living down here we’ve discovered lots of hidden gems so we thought we’d share 10 of the best with you. A lot of these places are tucked away and can be very hard to get too, so only really for people that are up for a challenge! Continue reading “10 Hidden Gems to Visit in Devon”
Wild swimming is a fairly new term to me, when we were growing up we just used to call it swimming in the river however I must admit the term ‘wild swimming’ sounds so much cooler! Continue reading “10 Breathtaking Wild Swimming Locations in Devon”
On the first day of our July holiday we headed over to the Yealm from Saltash. The weather wasn’t great; grey skies, poor viability and intermittent rain. Our plan was to get over to the Yealm as soon as possible so we could get settled in there for a few days whilst the weather improved.
We’ve been to the Yealm many times before, check out our child friendly sailing in the River Yealm post.
This time we had the kiddies Grandparents coming to stay with us for one night so we decided to moor on the pontoon in the Yealm. We normally just pick up a swinging mooring but we thought this would make it easier for everyone to get on and off the boat, especially as our guests weren’t ‘boaters’.
