I went away with my family and we stayed in a converted barn in the village of Marlborough, just a couple of miles from Salcombe in Devon; and it was only a 15 minute walk from the beach at Soarmill Cove.
Unfortunately the weather was pretty rubbish for most of the week we were away, so I only got to enjoy the beach on the last day when the sun finally came out. So the rest of the week was spent visiting national trust properties and other places of interest.
On Sunday we headed into the town of Dartmouth, which is a lovely village set on the river Dart. We then took a passanger ferry down the river to Greenways, the holiday home of Agatha Christie.

Monday, we walked over to Overbecks, an Edwardian house with a lovely garden with a tropical influence. The house itself isn't anything special, unless you count the large taxidermy collection, it's really the garden that most people go to look at.

Aften lunch we then headed into Salcombe, where me and my mum ended up parting with quite a lot of our money. I myself bought a cream cardigan and a pair of boat/deck shoes in the sales.
