Last weekend saw the Bass family pack up the car, wave goodbye to Abbie at the kennels and head for the M5 and down the country to Devon. We haven’t been away since our trip to Disneyland Paris so we were so ready for a break, although it did mean I had to miss a couple of days from university, which I felt bad about.
We arrived at Ladram Bay, a beautiful part of South Devon, nestled between Exmouth and Sidmouth and were shown to our stunning Sea View Apartment. The video below really doesn’t do it justice, it was stunning and very clean. It even had a dishwasher, I don’t have one of these at home!
The whole site is stunning and well maintained with good amenities. Part of the reason for our trip was so I could sit on the judging panel of the Ladram Bay’s Got Talent finals show for the children and teenager categories. This happen on the first night we were there so after a quick chip shop tea following our arrival, we headed off to the Three Rocks, which is where all the entertainment is held.
I was one of four judges on the night and oh my, there are some very talented youngsters out there, watch out X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, some of these will be heading your way very soon!
The shoreline to this are is amazing and with the stony beach, we didn’t have to worry about sand getting into places you really don’t want it to!
On the Sunday, we headed out after a quick round of crazy golf and revisited the Donkey Sanctuary we went to 6 years ago. This is a great place to visit if you are near by, it is free and there are lots of activities to do there, during the high seasons.
On the way home we called in at a lovely water-mill in the village next to the site, I will do a post on this later this week so watch out.
We had a fantastic family weekend and everyone really enjoyed it, even the teenager!
We love this part of Devon and will be returning very soon.
We received our accommodation free in return for being a judge on the panel, I decided to write this review as a thank you for the great time we had. All opinions are entirely our own.
