Road Trip Day #24, North Cornwall Coast to Exmoor National Park, North Devon.

Scroll down to content

Today we have a 2.5 hour drive to the Lynton/Lynmouth area of North Devon.  We took the fast route as the coastal roads would have taken forever and the narrow windy roads would have been too much for Sandy.

Road obstacles, we are on the sidewalk.

Very tight quarters on these roads.  Two trucks creeping past each other.

Our last two days of our 25 day road trip will be spent in Oare where we booked a converted barn on the estate of Yenworthy farm.  This is a very spacious place with two floors and multiple bedrooms and bathrooms but there were no other options available.  The big plus was a washer AND dryer so that we would arrive in Germany with clean clothes.

After checking into our Airbnb we drove to Porlock and had a wonderful lunch at Ziangs On the Weir of spicy Indonesian/Malaysian street food while sitting on picnic benches overlooking the harbor.

We spent the afternoon doing washes, planning tomorrows hike and working on blogs.
