the getaway...

We had been looking forward to our weekend away for what seemed like ages, but it proved not to be straightforward with childcare not quite working out the way we had planned and friends stepping in to save the day. 

We had decided to treat ourselves to a weekend away and found the most amazing beach hut in Devon, unfortunately we couldn't book a weekend near our 10th wedding anniversary in August, so we opted for whatever date was available, which was the first weekend in October. 

I had imagined us sat in woolly jumpers on the beach, how wrong can you be - we had a heatwave! It was as if we were in the Med.

Our own private beach and wood fired hot tub too, which was even more exciting as our boiler at home has been broken for over a week. 

We watched the fishermen check their lobster pots, people kayaking by, and two blobs in the distance that we thought could be seals turned out to be two swimmers who wanted to investigate the beach hut a little more closely! Definitely too busy for skinny dipping!

  3. I've had my eye on this place for ages, purely as research for our cabin of course! It looks idyllic and how fab that the weather was so hot for you.

  4. That looks amazing. What a find.

    I think I may have to book it!

  5. What a perfect weekend to go there - things must have been destined so that you went in October not August! It looks breathtakingly gorgeous and private.

  6. Oh my gosh, it's such a special place to go! And the hot tub? So fun! I think I'd forget all about tire trouble after seeing those views!
