When choosing our camp site this year, I was mindful that we would have an active 16 year old boy to entertain for 2 weeks - a bit of a daunting prospect. So I chose a campsite that had a largish swimming pool - which we made use of every morning - and made sure it was in an area that had a lot of activities we thought he would like - kayaking, water slides etc but we discovered his favourite activity on the Millpond in the village next to the campsite - Stoke Gabriel.
He would have spent every day here if we had let him. He caught 135 crabs in total!
The "River Shack" here became a firm favourite place to eat. We didn't eat "in" (the outside eating area was so pretty), but I couldn't resist taking a photo of the comfy looking interior. I bet its cosy in here when its chilly outside. They have a lovely menu using local produce and a local butcher - the quality of the food really shows.
They opened up a few times during the evening too which was handy. One of the ladies who works there decorates the pebbles and buckets that they use. I thought that these were really pretty and a great idea.
I think that the River Shack is a little bit of heaven on earth.
Stoke Gabriel is a gorgeous little place. Apart from the River Shack, it also has 2 lovely pubs and a lady opens her house to become a Bistro on certain days and evenings. "Emma's" specialises in fish, fresh from nearby Brixham and we can highly recommend that too.
