The journey started an hour late after we slept in. It's been glorious hot sunshine with one shower when we were out buying provisions. We called at a friend's halfway down to have bacon butties. It wasn't long until we were at the world's biggest traffic jam near Bristol. Sally Traffic said there'd been an accident.
Closer to where we are staying we were treated to some lovely roller coaster esque single track lanes! At one point I shut my eyes! One thing though, people of Devon, it is polite ( deemed by us oop North ) to wave to the person who slowed down, pulled in to the edge as far as they could, so you could drive past. I swear the only people who acknowledged us had roof top boxes on like us, I concluded that we are either, unwittingly members of a secret roof top box society, or they are tourists like us, not from Devon!
The owners are lovely, the log cabin is lovely. The view is lovely. The hot tub is lovely. The peace and quiet is lovely.
TOMORROW WILL BE LOVELY - for , as some of you may know already, I'm going to meet up with Tracey, from My Beautiful Life ! I'm so super excited!!!

If you and George meet up with them ( it's a pity you weren't there this week! ) you'll have an awesome time :-)Delete
Oh, there's some wonderful lanes down Devon way, aren't there? I used to go there a bit when my ex in-laws lived in Ilfracombe. I loved it - the area, I mean!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful time wih Tracey and a fantastic holiday. Have the bears gone with you?
Yes, they were given the option of staying home, but both wanted to come!Delete
Looks just like the hotel we stayed at in Devon, it has chalets, hotel was called Lake ViewReplyDelete
The website is on the next post Marlene, there are just four lodges here and I can't say I've seen a hotel - but maybe there is one overlooking us. We are right next to a gateway to some kennels, though you can't see the premises and I've not heard any barking!Delete
The M5 near Bristol/Cribbs Causeway is always one big traffic jam, unfortunately. Your hols place looks lovely.....I am envious of your hot tub, I love them. Any chance of you saying where it is? I don't blame you if you want to keep it to yourself, though!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful time with Tracey today.
We did have a great day - I posted the website on my next post but if you google Valley View Devon you should find it.Delete
looks fab, have a great time.xReplyDelete
It is! We did! Thanks xxDelete
Enjoy every minute and try to keep the naughtiness to a mega level.ReplyDelete
The time just flashed by Pam. The naughtiness was delicious! I think if alcohol had been consumed, we'd have been raucous too!Delete
Woo hoo! A holiday and a meet up! XxReplyDelete
