Well the weather man promised us a nice day on Wednesday so I had to make the most of it - so off to the North Devon Coast to a place called Hartland - after a pub lunch at The Hart in Hartland (amazing beef sandwiches made with devon ruby beef - sorry any vegetarians!!) we were all set for our walk. We parked at Hartland Quay
and headed towards the lighthouse. There are spectacular views towards Lundy Island
- it is really stunning and after a while you come across this lovely cottage called Millhouse part of the Hartland Abbey estate.
But we are not the only ones that think what a fabulous location as this cottage was used in the BBC adaptation of Sense and Sensibility.
As you can see they altered it a bit by added a false front door. But doesn't it look pretty, we then continued our walk to the village of Stoke,
we came across this amazing tree across the path
you had to crawl underneath it to continue and then the first signs of christmas a holly bush with loads of berries on it.
We ended up although a little muddy at the lovely church in Stoke,
it had the most amazing ceiling
It was such a beautiful walk and as I look out of the windows today I am certainly glad that we took advantage - no sewing today the house is looking a little neglected!! Off to a auction tomorrow in a small village of Hatherleigh so hoping I can find some lovely things!! I will let you know.
