Hope Cove – Devon 2013

Devon is a county in southwest England. It encompasses sandy beaches, fossil cliffs, medieval towns and moorland national parks. The English Riviera is a series of picturesque, south-coast harbour towns including Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. The South West Coast Path follows the coastline, taking in the towering cliffs of the northern Exmoor Coast and rock formations on the fossil-rich southern Jurassic Coast.

🙂 Beautiful beaches

Our annual Easter Camping trip took us to Salcombe Bay this year. Salcombe is a beautiful coastal town sitting on the banks of the Salcombe Estuary. It is within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the prettiest towns in the south of the region. It is also famous for its crab. It has its own crab festival, as well as many local restaurants that serve big plates of whole crab spilling out their shells, accompanied by chips and mayonnaise. The coastal walks are stunning. We camped at Karrageen Camping Park which is close to Hope Cove and has spectacular sunsets. They allow fires and dogs.

Our friends happened to have their boat moored nearby so we had a real treat going out o. the water with them and enjoying sundowners and snacks.

Back at the campsite we cooked up a storm and sat around the camp fire enjoying each other’s company…
