A winter, west country weekend away for Mrs BB's birthday and for once some fine, if cool and breezy weather.
First stop for breakfast was Lyme Regis, great bakery/deli in the high street and a walk along the deserted beach. I've previously thought Lyme was a bit run down, but with the sun out and the cold clean air it was really nice with lots of new cafes and restaurants down near the Cobb, the harbour and location from the film The French Lieutenant's Woman.
Lunch time stop was at Looe for pasty's and yet another walk on another beach.
Then down to Bodinnick ferry and the short crossing to Fowey.
The river moorings were completely empty in complete contrast to the summer's bustling and busy scene.
And up to the top of the hill where Fowey Hall Hotel sits majestically with views or the estuary and a welcome with roaring fires in the lounges. It's a great family hotel with kids club, games room, pools and spa.
