Alas today is my last trip of the year...... I'm in South Devon.
I set off very early (5:30ish!!) and drove through rain en-route. I looked at the sky and said Trish isn't here and the weather improved - actually that is true!!
I could have looked at 3 churches but I thought nah I'm going to laze about and went to Coleton Fishacre - given how steep the garden is in places laze is not wholly accurate!!
The house was built in the 1920's by the son of Richard D'Oyly Carte he of Gilbert & Sullivan fame (I've actually been to one of the Comic Operas at the Savoy and enjoyed it!!).
The garden is lovely but obviously not at it's best in mid-October. Alas no photos in the house.
Before heading off I had a cuppa and eyed the cake :D
The house is lovely, no great treasures but if I do win the Euro-Millions I might make the Trust an offer :D
The soup was Vegetable and the cake Lorraine's 1930 style Banana cake. I had a few nice sits reading. Good day.
My peace is about to be broken by she who brings rain.... ;)
