Having just spent a fantastic long weekend with friends in their spectacular Devon house in South Devon, I could not resist sharing some of the hi-lights from our trip. Food, atmosphere and view does not come much better than Beach House at South Milton Sands. The fresh fish served here is delicious and the beach hut venue is relaxed and effortlessly cool, I could have sat here all day enjoying a lazy lunch with friends whilst looking at the panoramic views of the South Hams coastline, stunning!
Hire a boat and steer yourself towards, Dartmouth. You will not be disappointed as you cruise along the River Dart, through gorgeous tree lined river banks, passing Agatha Christie’s Georgian magnolia coloured mansion set high in the hills, before arriving with the beautifully pastel coloured Dartmouth town ahead. If you can find a spot to moor up, visit Mitch Tonks’ Rockfish for delicious fish and chips, which can be taken away or eaten in. There is also a fantastic fudge shop called Edward’s Fudge Kitchen, selling a huge array of flavoured fudges from Baileys, seaweed and licorice to classics like vanilla and chocolate, well worth a visit!
For drinks, head to The Crabshell Inn in Kingsbridge. Situated on the quayside this inn serves drinks and the best pizzas, whilst locals and visitors sample the latest paddle boards or get hands on advice and training on how to paddle board in style, perfect viewing to idle away a few hours until the sun sets.
Of course I have not touched on other South Ham delights, such as Blackpool Sands and Salcombe and many other amazing places I have yet to discover. However, if you are lucky enough to visit the South Hams area for a couple of days, our recommendations are not to be missed. We are already looking forward to our next visit…
