  • More hot holiday gossip! (Sorry, obsessed.)If you’re gagging for a local spa stay feast your peepers on Torquay’s @lincombe_hall. Back open on 20 May, it’s one of the many coastal delights on Muddy’s Weekend Escapes 2021 (link in bio). I took these pics back last October when I first got wind of their new £2million (!) spa and have been desperate to get in that pool ever since. Get in quick before it gets booked up!
  • Help! The Egyptian feta and pomegranate grain salad from @packedmealprep is far TOO delicious for something that looks so healthy. I’m waiting for the family to come back from the park for dinner but I just can’t stop scoffing! Hey, at least it’s their muscle gain range so it won’t make me fat(ter). 😉
  • What’s that I spy? Could it be a defrazzler of a hut tub lodge stay? You betcha - I popped to @kentisburygrange for a nosey and after its shock closure in 2020, it’s back open for luxury stays, including 16 palatial en suite rooms in the country house hotel or one of 11 2-bed lodges, complete with hot tubs, waterside views, tv baths - and they still have lodge availability for July. Min stay three days, £275 for up to five people in a lodge, and 11 leafy acres to explore. The fine dining is out (it used be a Michael Caines restaurant) but The Coach House remains, serving up family friendly gastronopub fayre. They also have brand new 1-bed stone lodges without self catering for the lovebirds. Check it out!

  • You want beer gardens and outdoor eateries? You got ‘em! Here’s my updated round up of over 40 places to scoff and quaff around #Devon, including pubs, restaurants, cafes, and because it’s still a tad parky, ones with heaters so you can leave the muffler at home. Link in bio - do tell me any good ones near you please.
