Hele Corn Mill: Well worth a visit; fascinating tour - passionate owner; Cream tea tastic! 


Hele Corn Mill is a working water mill in Ilfracombe and is a real hidden Gem. It was voted Trip Advisor No.1 thing to do in Ilfracombe. The owners take you round and you see flour being made, but from all the reviews the café is the place not to miss. Homemade cakes, cream teas, and other home baking using the flour ground in the mill. Just so you are not left salivating with no where to go the mill is closed on Saturdays during the summer holidays!

Reading the list of attractions coming to the North Devon Show on Wednesday 5th August I can’t imagine how they expect you to be able to do them all in one day. Wear your running shoes, start early and expect a busy day! One of the main attractions is the Rockwood Dog Display Team, there will also be carriage driving, Punch & Judy, falconry, a pipe band and show jumping. The horses, alpacas, cattle and sheep judging rings will give you a chance to see the area’s best livestock and a dog show too. The horticultural displays are always worth visiting, as for the food marquee…. With lots to sample and buy and celebrity chef demonstrations I could spend most of the day there and we haven’t even got to all the aisles of outdoor stands and stalls, including clothes, crafts, machinery, cars and so much more. Give me a wave as you whizz by!

You never need to grow up if you relive childhood holidays on the beaches of N. Devon

You never need to grow up if you relive childhood holidays on the beaches of N. Devon

 

Holidays in North Devon are as fun as ever. The beaches are just as good the sea as cold, the air as fresh and even better you can share them with your own children, so you have an excuse to do all those childhood activities, like rock-pooling, body boarding or sandcastle building. The only adult things you need to do is make sure the holiday home is booked! Then head to the theatre, with the whole family to see the boy who also never grew up and have ice-creams in the interval! Peter Pan is on at The Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe on various Tuesdays in August

On your Marks, Get Set – its exciting, strenuous & exhausting gig racing from Clovelly

 

The West Country has a long tradition of racing pilot gigs. Pilot Gigs are recognised as the first shore based lifeboats and rescues are recorded as far back as 17th century, but they were originally constructed to go out to sea to guide ships into harbour. The gigs used to race out to be the first to get the pilot on board and so get the payment for piloting the boat in safely. The modern six oar boats are modelled on the traditional gigs and the racing is more competitive than ever, especially when you add the excitement of the strong North Devon tidal currents into the race. Enjoy an exhilarating day of Gig Racing at Clovelly on Saturday 1st August.
