“Hot Chocolate Heaven”

**********************

The rambling part…
So our week is nearly over – about time I told you all about where we are staying…

We are at Watermouth Castle near Ilfracombe in Devon. It was built in 1845 so is not a “real castle” but it looks the part and is grand enough to impress the children – and the adults.

As discussed yesterday, the front of the castle (approached by a suitably grand sweeping driveway overlooking the sea) is open to the public. At the back, part of it has been converted into a set of holiday apartments.

This is the way in…

This is the separate building with the heated indoor pool in…

Come on into the apartment…

The master bedroom…

One of the twin rooms …

The other twin room has normal single beds – but does have an AMAZING glass window!

The lounge/dining room…

the wonderful wonderful view (even with storm clouds overhead!)

So lovely to have a fire today – storms and hail outside!

The little kitchen (it is wider than the archway and extends about six foot each way behind the arch – but is big enough)

The downside of this beautiful place – is no mobile phone signal – and no internet. But it’s not all bad as there is a great little place nearby which has internet access, softplay to keep the kids amused on days like this when it rains…and they serve amazing hot chocolate πŸ˜€
