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.

rather odd – and huge – Ilfracombe statue

I love the funicular cliff railway that took us down to Lynmouth (and back up again)
we had the car to ourselves going down to Lynmouth

The sky turned very dark and we headed for shelter to let the short, sharp shower pass by
Blue skies soon returned

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…
the cake was so yummy I was half way through it before I remembered to take a photo!
We had intended to stop off at Dunster Castle on the way home, but it was tipping down with rain, so we just went home. A really great week, but always nice to get back home to Bath and our two cats.
