Home sweet home!
Would i come back? Would our little kids come back? Without any doubt, tomorrow, next week or year. I struggle to relax but here for the first time in years I stopped and enjoyed. I sat watching the world from the window sill, just watching the boats, steam train and general life. The house is so homely to the point of making you consider making a life just here! We only had a day of bad weather but at all times the house was so cosy that getting out required a big effort! But its worth it to walk, take ferries and explore. The only minor downside is 78 most quite steep steps from Fore Street to your house. You get used to that and for me in my 50's, it wasn't bad at all. If you need supplies its an adventure, ferry across to Dartmouth or drive towards Paignton for your major supermarkets. 20 mins at most. There's a post office nearby selling basics and two good pubs with food within a few mins stroll. We loved the Ship, great food and real beer plus lovely friendly people. How do you sum up a holiday were your sad to leave and want atleast another week, minimum!! A million thank yous for a great stay in an awesome location. We will be back:)
