Slapton ley


By cmsue


The weather was a bit better today, so of we went again to Slapton ley,via Blackpool Sands, they are both in South Hams,Devon.
Blackpool sands.

I just love this house on the cliff edge.

Close up, Boy o Boy i wish i lived here.

Not sure what this plant is?.

This house is right on the beach, below this is there view.

So onto Slapton Ley. The largest natural lake in S Devon.

The Manor house,with its own private Ley bank,all you have to do in the morning is go out side and catch Fish for your brekkers

How about sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine on a sunny evening Mmm

Now down to Beesands, a lovely working fishing village.The front beach where its popular for rod Anglers.

I thought some one might like to go on holiday there, so i took a snap of this advert in the window of a really cute cottage

This is the cottage

The next two are of the veiw from the cottage.

Can you see the light house at the end of the rocks.

Oh There it is a bit closer

Wouldn't you just love to sit in that conservatory for breakfast : )

In summer, yes yes! But living too near the sea can be no joke in winter when there is nothing to temper the wind, and gardening is limited too because of the salt. Better to live a few miles inland and save the sea for treats! Then you can avoid the beaches altogether in August and enjoy them the rest of the year when they are deserted! (That's what we decided anyway)

I agree Steragram, I would rather live on higher ground but have the coast as a nearby treat!

Hi All ,We are very happy where we live, we have the best of most worlds, in a very quiet road with the River/Quay just 120 metres in front of us, Teignmouth Sea front/ beach etc just 400 yards away. We are on a slope about 85 feet above Sea level and Dartmoor is just 16 miles (20 mins in the car) away. Being so very close to the Sea we have NOT had a proper Frost yet this year, ie below 3c, we wouldn't swap it for "all the Tea in China"
