What a choice ? music from Frankie Valli or from fantastic films. You can?t do both

by Admin30. April 2016 11:21

You could be in Barnstaple with Let’s Hang On who will take you on a musical journey through the history of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The alternative is to be in Ilfracombe, listening to a varied selection of film music with the North Devon Sinfonia, enjoy variety from Harry Potter to Schindler’s List, to Tom and Jerry – what a treat! Over to you now - will it be Barnstaple or will it be Ilfracombe?

How many edible things Chilli can you think of? You have one minute to find at least five

by Admin29. April 2016 11:21

The first is easy – chilli peppers (you know the sort that grow on chilli plants, not the red hot musical kind). Chilli chocolate, one of my favourite, chilli preserves and chilli sauces, going strong. How about chilli fudge – I’ve never even tasted that, but I could if I go to the Devon Chilli Fiesta at RHS Rosemoor on 7th and 8th May. Add talks, cookery demonstrations, special guests, music and children’s activities and it sounds to me like the day will whizz past. There will be lots of chilli products available to buy as well, so that should heat things up a little when you get home!

There?s at least two ways to do PAW Patrol in North Devon on Sunday 1st May

by Admin28. April 2016 11:21

One way to do to do Paw Patrol is to take your dog and set off on a glorious long walk on the morning of Sunday 1st May while you are on holiday in North Devon. In case you came on holiday without the dog, over half of the Choice Cottages properties welcome your furry pawed family members on holiday too. The other way is to head off to the Big Sheep where Marshall from PAW Patrol is making his first visit. Whichever you choose, you will have a great day out, and if it was the doggy member of your household that made it special it’s one great day out you can repeat every time you holiday!

Handsome prince meets beautiful queen under wicked enchantment ? Swan Lake in Ilfracombe

by Admin27. April 2016 11:21

Martin Bourne’s Swan Lake Is the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway and is particularly unusual as the corps de ballet are all male! You can now see this ballet performed live through a simultaneous screening on Thursday 5th May at the Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe. If you want to make a real outing of it book for Prosecco and canapé’s before the screening too.


Time to treat yourself at the ever popular Rosemoor Spring Craft and Design Fair

by Admin26. April 2016 11:21

From 30th April to 2nd May, at RHS Rosemoors’s Craft and Design Fair, you can browse amongst stalls of beautiful handcrafted items for home and garden. This three-day fair showcases a wealth of West Country creative talent and includes unusual and unique handcrafted ceramics, jewellery, clothing, handbags and glasswork, among many other products. There’s also DevonArtPop, a pop up exhibition by local artists and a further exhibition of works by Pam Cox. You really do get value for money with your entry fee for the gardens for this event.

We?re all going on a Whitsun holiday, we?re going where the sun shines brightly - we hope!

by Admin25. April 2016 11:21

Sunshine is a good reason to head for North Devon for the half term school holiday, but good as Choice Cottages are, they can’t promise good weather. What they can assure you of is fantastic quality self catering holiday homes, stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and lots to do. Whether you prefer riding the waves or riding a roller coaster (a new one opened at The Big Sheep a few weeks ago) you know you’ll wish your holiday was longer. Book up now if you haven’t already reserved your property – lots of other people are thinking about staying in the UK for their holidays too.

Last minute holiday weekend idea for a fantastic, fun, festival break in Ilfracombe

by Admin24. April 2016 11:21

Free admission, fantastic festival food available and a full weekend of music – what is there not to enjoy at the Landmark Beer and Music Festival. Oops forgot to mention the great selection of local brews for you to work your way round too! But first you need to browse the choice cottages left to rent for the weekend so that you have local accommodation to enable you to go to the festival and enjoy the music (and a beer or two).
