The (Not So) Famous Five Go West!

Thank goodness the better weather has arrived because we are off on holiday for two weeks!  Although we have holidayed in Devon a few times, the girls are going further west than ever before with a trip round much of Cornwall, followed by stays in South and East Devon.  To say we are excited is an understatement!

We have been invited to stay at some lovely locations, such as the beautiful Tregenna Castle Resort overlooking stunning St Ives Bay (above), which offers amazing family accommodation, beautiful beaches and 72 acres to explore.  That should keep us busy!

We'll be visiting lots of towns, beaches and attractions, including the Eden Project (can't wait for that!) and the girls already have a bit of a bucket list to achieve:

  • 10 beaches
  • 5 playgrounds
  • 6 ice creams
  • 3 cream teas
  • 23 types of animal

With an owl sanctuary, Plymouth Aquarium and a monkey sanctuary already lined up, as well as the llamas and everything else at World of Country Life, Exmouth, I think they'll achieve the last one no problem.  And I'm sure the rest of their list will be achieved with much joy all round!

After a couple of other stops, we'll be finishing our trip at Ladram Bay in East Devon, which has fabulous leisure facilities including swimming pool, soft play and playgrounds, as well as its own private beach.

Keep your fingers crossed that the weather holds for us, and keep an eye out for our updates on social media.

And don't forget to enter our competitions!
