We actually started our final day of holiday heading to Ilfracombe. The walk from the car park to the harbour was quite nice, but the town itself was something of a disappointment (apologies to locals!) so we headed off to Lynton and Lynmouth.

Lynton town hall!

We popped in to Appledore for one last mocha before we went back to Hartland, and I just want to show you this, the most major road in this part of Devon – the A39. Barely wide enough to pass another car in some places, with overhanging trees and a steep drop at the side…not what I am used to from an A road!

Just time to say goodbye to Appledore and the Coffee Cabin…
