This week Addi and I are down in the Devonshire countryside; we’ve headed off for a week and boy do we need it. We left it late for our holiday this year and decided on a staycation in one of my favourite parts of the country. Our base for the week is the amazing Great Gutton Farm and our 400 year old farmhouse is roomy, well equipped, right in the heart of the countryside, has acres of space to roam free and an amazing indoor swimming pool.
As holiday breaks in the UK go this is a good place to be; within an hour you’re on some of Britain’s best beaches and there is a lot to do in the local towns and villages and yesterday we headed to the Miniature Pony Centre in Dartmoor. Addi is getting into horses now (much to my delight as I was a keen rider), and we’ve just started horse riding lessons so she was excited to see what a miniature pony was and from the website there looked a lot to do and so on a sunny day it was the perfect day out.
