My other half used to holiday every summer at a welsh hill farm with a print on the wall by Sir John Millais. It's called 'The Boyhood of Raleigh' and he was excited to discover a blue plaque informing us this was the very wall depicted in the painting.
Another lovely walk is along the Marine Parade heading towards the River Otter and is suitable for any age.There are seats along the way to sit and take in the breathtaking scenery.
On the west side of the beach is the River Otter with lots of wildlife.The pathway is suitable for anyone.Its a lovely small river and so peaceful.The other side of the river has some beautiful red cliffs with trees growing on them, a beautiful site,you can see all the birds...

A Slice of Lyme: A Slice Of Lyme
There was a lot on offer but we only wanted something light. We enjoyed our lunch of very tasty baguettes and panini with chips and side salad served with a smile. Having a baby with us in a cosy area didn't cause glum faces as sometimes happens. Being sweet toothed I...

The cliff walk rises steadily from the beach - it's not that high up or much of a climb really. Some of the buildings along here are quite interesting, including the round summer house with the thatched roof in the picture.
