Butchers Row – Food glorious food!

As the name would suggest Butchers Row @butchersrow is a street that used to house a whopping 33 local butchers shops.  

It was a thriving local shopping area, however the supermarkets moved in and one by one the butchers shops closed their doors permanently.  Fast forward 10 years or so and Butchers Row has been given a new lease of life.

The butchers are gone, but the food theme remains!  Every beautiful grade 2 listed unit is now occupied by local food makers.  

There’s a shop for every foodie craving: wood fired pizza @stonedfood, stunning cupcakes @thecupcakerybarnstaple, an asian feast @eatatblock, a local cheese board @southwestcheese, an artisan sarnie @ArtiSaniBarnstaple and so many more!

Take the super hot chilli challenge at the latest store to open @northdevonchillies!

This unique street can be found in the centre of the market town of Barnstaple.  Just a 30min drive from Coastal Cabins Glamping, Barnstaple is a great day out with plenty to keep all ages entertained.

Bath – the city of baths

I normally try and keep our local reviews well…local. Being a good 2.5 hours from Coastal Cabins, Bath is far from local. However technically Bath is still in the Westcountry so i’m squeezing this one in because Bath is BATH.

I love Bath. I lived there for my formative University years and it’s just so magical. In the winter it’s freezing, and in the summer it’s packed full of tourists – but despite this I just keep going back.
We managed a little break away and stayed @thebirdbath_ A truly bonkers and amazing hotel which I would highly recommend. With dinner at their sister hotel @no15gp Just LOOK at those toilets!

We only had 24 hours but managed to fit in the @bathskylineparkrun with lovely views across the city. Then across to @royalcrescent_hotel for afternoon tea followed by a few hours browsing the many inspirational interiors shops – check out @grahamandgreen , @OKA, @indiajanehome and @haydesign
Now i’m off to plan our next visit…

If you’re travelling down to Coastal Cabins Glamping from London or Midlands (or anywhere really!) then why not stop off in Bath on the way.

Darts Farm – A Foodie Haven

If you are travelling south to Coastal Cabins Glamping then this is a slight detour, but well worth it!  

Just off the M5 near Exeter you’ll find the food lover’s haven of @dartsfarm.  The award winning farm shop is literally brimming with home grown veg, organic breads, local wines, artisan cheeses, meats (@dartsfarmbutchers) and so much more.  And of course there’s a cafe – a bloody good cafe!

But there’s more to @dartsfarm than seriously tasty food.  Under the same roof you can also browse luxury home and lifestyle products from brands like @AGAOfficial and @FiredEarth.  

It’s also the perfect stop off if the kids need to let off a bit of steam.  With a huge playground (free!) on site it was a welcome sight for my 3 year old.  The resident pigs, cows and llamas are worth a visit too! 

Darts Farm is 1.5 hours from Coastal Cabins Glamping, just outside the town of Topsham near Exeter.  It’s a great stop off en route, or part of a day trip to the Exeter area.

My oh my Bideford!

My oh my Bideford…haven’t you grown! Having been to school in Bideford I always had an element of nostalgia for the town. But my memories tended to focus on sticky bars that (thankfully) no longer exist.

I thought it was about time I went back during daylight hours, and had a really good adventure in my old ‘home’ town – and i’m seriously glad I did!

Bideford is most definitely worth a visit. Pick a lovely sunny day, park up next to the stunning Victoria Park and wander into the town along the riverside.

Walk up Bridgeland Street and hang a left down Mill Street and this is where the real adventure starts. Almost immediately you’ll stumble upon my new favourite shop Sunshine & Snow. An eclectic collection of homewares and gifts in a beautiful setting that feels straight out of London or Brighton.

If you can prise yourself away then continue your stroll and pop into Hip & Waisted for a bespoke handmade belt. Browse Shore Drift for coastal nicknacks, then take a left and explore the nooks and crannies of Josie’s Interiors Ltd.

Don’t forget a quick trip to Hiron & Son’s Artisan Butchers. Pick up some seriously good steak to cook in the BBQ cabin later that evening when you get back to Coastal Cabins base camp.

Saunter back to where you started via The Italian Kitchen for the best pizza lunch. Before you go, let the kids run off some steam in Victoria Park whilst you grab a coffee and patisserie at the french restaurant Café du Parc overlooking the park. If it’s a sunny day make sure you bring swimwear, the splash pool is one not to miss!

For those travelling without kids also check out Number Eight Restaurant for some seriously fine fine-dining.

Stay at Coastal Cabins Glamping and check out everything Bideford has to offer. It’s just 15 miles from us.

Travelling down the M5? Stop here!

Are you travelling down the M5 to reach Coastal Cabins this summer?

If you haven’t already discovered the wonders of Gloucester Services then this may actually change your life! After a hot and sweaty trip to the midlands last weekend with our 3 year old, stumbling across this place was like an oasis in the dessert.

Serving only the highest quality local produce, the restaurant is fabulous and did I mention there is an indoor climbing frame/play area for the kiddies? The journey took a lot longer than we planned…but this time it wasn’t because of the traffic jams, but because the other half couldn’t drag me away from the farm shop!
