Content: After a 3 or 4 hour drive from my hometown Wolverhampton, we finally made it to Devon. My partners family always stay at Ladram Bay Holiday Park. This was my first time here and I absolutely loved it ❤️ I’m not usually a fan of pebble beaches but this place just stole my heart 🥰 It reminded me of Thailand with the little cliff remain sitting in the middle of the this beach.

Content: After a full day of swimming in the sea and the holiday parks swimming pool/slides and outdoor water obstacles, we got ready for dinner. We went to the on site Pebble Restaurant and it was divine! 😋 I had the most terrific time and the food was spot on! I was so surprised at how good the food was! Most camp site food is less than average 😆

Content: After wandering around the beach we strolled into the town which is right on the sea front. We saw a cute cafe and a roast in a pasty caught my eye. I have never had a pasty that tasted like this 😍 I would honestly go back just to have it 😂

Content: Towards the bottom of the main sea front I found a small fish stall. I just had to get some prawns and crab! 😝 It seems like all I did on this day was eat and enjoy the views 😂 There are lots of shops that we went into, I just didn’t take many pictures. I brought a shark tooth from Morocco and my friend purchased a crystal 💎

Day 3 - 3 Jun 2021

Exmouth Beach

Content: We got up and ready in our swimwear and drove down to Exmouth beach. It was busier than I thought it would be as there were still restrictions in place. The beach is standard and the sea was brown but a beach is a beach and we made the most out of it 😁

Content: We went to have fish and chips again but it was awful 😞 The chips were oven chips and the fish cake tasted nothing like fish!! I was really disappointed ☹️ However, next to this chippy stand there is a play area for children and sand. Also beware of the seagulls again if you’re eating 🤣

Bath House

Content: We ended up going to the pub about a 10 minute walk down and having drinks and dessert 😋 The cake was spot on and the pint was good👌

Content: Once the rain cleared up we drove to Kynance cove which is a 10 minute drive from the Holiday park. You will have to pay for parking here or you can park further down the road in the town and walk along the edge which will take about an hour. This is the best beach I have ever been to in England. The water is so blue it makes you feel like you are in a different country. The sand is so soft and a lighter shade. Just be careful that you don’t get caught out in the tide. It’s very easy to go and look in the caves and come back and not realise that the tide has been coming in. We only went to look in those caves for about 25 minutes and by the time we came out to go back around the cove, the tide was up to our shins.

I have a mixed berry smoothie whilst my friends had a coke and a cider🥤 There also many little birds that live in a bird house right at the restaurant and it’s awesome just watching them fly around whilst looking at the view 🐦 This is where we also saw seals! This is the only part of the coast we saw them on! 🦭

Content: Continue walking along the coast until you get to Housel Bay. The coastal view is crazy. You will see signs that say caution ⚠️ because the cliff edge is unstable. You can feel the difference in the ground with each you take so please be careful. We ended up walking down to the sea across it. Oh and you might see a few cows and sheep along the way 🐮
