Playing away - North Devon heaven!

A different winter break this year, a National Trust cottage on the South West Coast Path. In a tucked away Combe, just off the A39, we descended the rough track to our Coastguard cottage of excellent standard, including the wood burner with eco- logs! On my first days explore I walked down to Peppercombe beach, a rocky but picturesque place accessed by moss covered trees with some rare lichens on them. Birds were plentiful along the stony track and included marsh tit, treecreeper, nuthatch, coal tit and song thrush. The ultimate place to stay, I think, is the Landmark Trust painted cottage with stupendous views across to Hartland Point. 
Snowdrops are out by the stream and even some early primroses. 
The first exploration also found me the South West Coast Path for tomorrow’s adventure!
