Not a problem journey-wise, and stopped off on Thursday night at a splendid B&B in the A45 near Rugby called Home Farm ( It is run by a very friendly couple, Diane and Harry and their prize-winning dogs! A very comfortable night, and superb freshly cooked full English breakfast helped us to continue with the long journey to Devon on Friday.

We stopped a couple of times before arriving in Devon. The journey was pretty good, and only go a bit slow when arriving at Torquay. We made our way to Galmpton which is the village next to Greenway. Here we found a cracking local butcher and shop to stock up for the weekend.

We then went to Greenway, dropping our things off in the Lodge, before heading down to the house for a wander in the garden and our first Devon cream tea, which I don’t think we’ll beat all week!

We’re going to look around the house later this week, and partake of a cooked lunch in Agatha’s kitchen in the house – a bit of a treat!! Can’t wait!!
