... to appreciate the view. In the afternoon in particular, the wind must have been gusting up to 50 or even 60 miles an hour, as at times we were struggling to stay on our feet, never alone walk! We had started the day walking cross country on roads, as we did not have the time to follow the SWCP all the way round Hartland. So we headed due southwest from Clovelly to rejoin the path about 2 miles north of Welcome Mouth. The view of the cliffs ...

... the wind had really strengthened: Bertha alive and kicking again! But she was not crying so, though frequently buffeted, we were dry. The views were great and the pace, well, pacey! That's the thing about new joiners: fresh legs and feet! What I would give for fresh feet! Yes, only feet as after a rest day, all our socks are clean!! Anyway, company speeds the day along as we caught up on news etc. The going was never dull either as ...

Back in Britain

A travel blog entry by nathancrang on Aug 09, 2014

Hi everyone, I arrived back in the UK yesterday after a very long journey about 26 hours total - fortunately I didn't feel too bad after it, just a little tired! I've had an amazing trip, thanks for reading the blog, it's been nice knowing that people have been keeping up with what I've been doing whilst I've been on my adventures. Even whilst I've been travelling I've planned a few more trips - I've well and truly caught the "travel bug"! I hope to see you all soon and show you the ...

... certainly noticed the "downs"! From Goodleigh, the walk into Barnstaple was easy. The suburbs of Barnstaple incorporating the ubiquitous Tescos, Asda and Homebase are nothing to write home about so I won't. We received a very warm welcome from Maggie at the Poplars bed and breakfast: a welcome that included a big slab of cherry cake. We are going to enjoy our day's rest ...

This hotel was a complete let down... Management needs a total overhaul and attitude adjustment. I would not recomend this hotel to my dog to stay at! Pay a little more at for a cleaner, comfortable hotel you will be glad that you did.

Best Holiday Yet

from

Just returned from a weekend stay in bideford we stayed at the Durrant

and it was a very pleasent and enjoyable stay the staff were very frendily and always helpful the food was excellent,we were served in the restaurant by a gentlemen called David who really made our stay one to remember the hotel does need a litte work on the outsde but the inside is nicly looked after our room was well decorated and very clean the washbasin needs some attention otherwise it was very nice. I have read some of the other reviews and really can not belive that these people stayed at the same hotel. Well worth a stay.

The worst hotel in England!!!

from

We had to pay for our weekend when checking in - I should of realised then!!

As there is no way I would of given them a penny for some of the worst food ever presented to me (the gravy on my side salad was rather unappetising)! Hostile, impatient and completly unmotivated staff. The water in the pool was green! The smell in male toilets in the reception was repulsive.

I wished i could convey to you how bad this place was.. and just wish i'd read these reviews before booking

The only good thing about it is the endless stories I am now able to everyone about our stay!!

Please don't go there it was appalling.

ALmost there, not quite

from

On the whole this isn't a bad hotel. It does need a lot of work to modernise it, but on the whole the new owners appear to have concentrated on the essentials first. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The interior appear appears to have been repainted and there is new carpets. The food is a good quality on the whole and the staff are friendly.

The outside of the hotel is not in the best condition. The bar area is pretty small for a hotel of this size and the disco in the main hall is absolutely dire! Sack the DJ or better yet, get rid of the entertainment altogether.

Very unpleasant!

from

In need of re-decorating and modernisation.

Like being in an old peoples home.

Dirty & Smelly

Breakfast was disgusting.

booked for two nights but could only stand it for one!

Found much better hotel nearby.

Don't waste your money!

Lovely stay

from

Terrible

from

Just returned from a 4 day break,This hotel was nothing like it looks on the internet,on arrival there were plants growing out of the guttering and the complete outside is in total need of a face lift,inside the decor is very tired 80's that also needs a complete overhaul,also there has been a recent addition to the hotel,an indian resturant which leaves a smell of indian cooking throughout which can be unpleasant,The cooked breakfast was not to a very good standard which resulted in us having breakfast at the local safeways.

Terrible...dont bother!!!!!!

from

Awful, like being in an old peoples home.

Rooms and hotel filthy, desperate for a good clean and HUGE update!!!

Smells disgusting!!!

Rooms dirty and out of date!!!

Please dont waste your money!!!
