Torquay Birthday Celebration...

We spent this weekend with Tom's family in Torquay celebrating my sister in laws birthday! The weather was perfect! No unplanned drenchings this weekend!

We stayed in a beautiful holiday cottage called Cliff Lodge. It literally had all the amenities we could have imagined... Games Room with bar and full sized snooker table, Gym, good length Swimming Pool with a Sauna & then a Hot Tub in the decking of the Pool Room outside overlooking the garden and sea.

Our evenings were spent in the Games Room bettering various snooker abilities!(I'd never played Snooker before while Tom's dad plays Snooker twice a week)

On Saturday we all went to Babbacombe Model Village which was great for the adults and children. I had never been to a model village before so was slightly in awe of the how intricate the models are. I never imagined that there would be things going on inside the houses as well as outside.

After Babbacombe we headed down into Torquay to have food and mooch about the town. I'd never been to Torquay before and as it is hearlded as the English Riviera I probably had my hopes set rather too high for an off season coastal town. I think I need to go back there in the summer to visit it properly!

On Sunday, we had more of a lazy day in the house. It was a beautiful day though so Tom and I took the opportunity to go for a wander and to see if we could reach the sea... The countryside was lovely and so quiet. We found a nice spot to sit and share a Twix while watching the sea do its thing! We never reached a beach but discovered after that we would have done if we had carried on along the path! Shame we didn't, it was so warm it was definitely paddle weather!

It was lovely to spend another weekend with family in a different location. I really wish I could live somewhere so beautiful... I don't think I would ever get bored of spotting ships in the bay either! Simple things as ever!

I was very snap happy this weekend so here are pictures galore:

Sign isn't very clear - Clancy Abbey - sight of interest.

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

Would love to know if you think Torquay is a 'must visit' for the summer?
