Last day in East Devon and it was a good one!
Woodland walk first thing, then a trip to the estuary at Budleigh Salterton in the afternoon - I think I might have been there before, but there were plenty of new smells, sights and puddles to explore :-0
Managed to sneak in a couple of paddles in the river, as well as meeting lots of new doggie friends.
Then Grant got ...
... took her awhile to notice I wasn't with her!!! Soooo much funnier because two guys walking their dog Jasper saw the whole thing and took the mickey.
... to Tipton St John for a stroll along the banks of the River Otter. There's supposed to be wild beavers here, but we didn't see them (or any otters neither). Did meet a lovely older lady dog called Lola - she seemed pretty keen, but it didn't last ....I guess holiday romances are always brief.
Managed to sneek in a couple of good paddles in the shallows. There were lots of sheep with lambs (and a couple of really big ones) but I ignored them all.
... place to rest my drooly jaws on the back seat ;-)
We went to East Hill - not far away, and a nice mix of woodland and open heath. Corri & Grant thought they'd take the driest path, but LOL ... it was super muddy and I found lots of puddles to run through. I was pretty dirty when we got home!
All in all, not a bad day - I think East Devon is ok (but not as good as home ... old people are a bit boring!!!)
... after that.... jeez louise! if he wants to keep the stick then he shouldn't keep throwing it away and hoping I'll bring it back to him!
Played with Grant & Corri in the garden for a while, but they're old and get tired quite quickly so they wanted to go indoors. Indoors is boring, so I had some fun pretending I didn't understand what they were saying, until Grant gave me a treat to go ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Silversprings St Davids Exeter
Encouraged by the other favourable reviews we chose Silverspings as our base for our long weekend (17th-21st August 2007) in Exeter. What a find!!
Best hotel ever
I stayed at the Silversprings for a week, while I was working in Exeter, and it was such a pleasure to return to the hotel every night. The decor is luxurious and contemporary, and the room had everything I would want, even biscuits left for me every night. The staff are warm and welcoming, more than at any other hotel I've experienced. I felt very safe and cared for which is important for a woman travelling alone. The breakfasts were delicious and the service was attentive and friendly. It's the best hotel or B&B experience I have ever had, and I travel a fair amount.
Small first class hotel
Booked for three nights stay in a delux room and it certainly was delux , all the extras you would come to expect from 5* accomadation.
All staff very attentive and nothing was to much trouble from were to eat to the complimentary dvd selection.
Cannot speak high enough about the room and ensuite all in pristine order, lcd tv with dvd player was a bonus when the weather was inclement.
Having stayed in many supposed 4/5* hotels most of them do not come up to this standard.
Mr & Mrs Harper
I have never written an hotel review before, but was so bowled over by my experience at Silversprings, that I felt I really should sing their praises to others. I thoroughly recommend the Silversprings Hotel for the quality of service, the standard of accommodation, value for money and the little extras.
Warm and welcoming
Lovely hotel, immaculately clean, very welcoming and friendly. We stayed in a deluxe room, which wasn't large but had everything that was required. Excellent standard of decour, 6ft comfortable bed, small bathroom but had everything that was required. Lots of nice little touches like cotton wool, bubble bath, shampoo and conditioner.
Parking isn't as limited as people think, with two public carparks on the doorstep, on road parking and the private car park to the rear.
Breakfast was lovely, freshly cooked and lots of choice.
The complimentary use of the PC in the guest lounge was excellent, as was the DVD library.
I would certainly stay again, thank you to all the staff.
Nice little hotel
Nice little hotel well located near the station in Exeter.
Very well appointed rooms - lots of good touches, such as bathrobe, hairdryer etc.
Very friendy & helpful welcome too - I'd definitely stay there again!
Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights,after viewing the web page. As soon as we entered the hotel we were made welcome. Nothing was too much trouble.The staff were extremely helpful and polite.
This guest house was excellent. The owner goes way out of their way to make you feel comfortable. I think the small things that they do make the most impact. I got there after a long day of travel and they made a pot of tea for me...no added or hidden cost. Any time I got back in, they would always ask if I would like a tea in the lounge. It was very thoughtful. They have DVD's that you can borrow for the night...no added or hidden cost. It was well decorated and well maintained. The customer service was excellent. They don't run this like a business, they run it like they really enjoy what they do. The breakfast was also excellent. It is easy access to both train stations (Exeter St Davids and Exeter Central). It is an easy walk to the city centre and to the main university campus.
As previous poster says, parking is an issue, avoid bringing car if possible.
Had a three night stay here and enjoyed it very much on the whole.
