Nice weather for ducks

If the last few weeks has taught us anything, it’s that the weather in England can be temperamental to say the least!

So what is there to do around here when it’s raining? Here’s our top 5:

1. Some may say this is cheating…but our first suggestion is to go to the beach! The old saying, ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing’ is very true. Waterproofs are the BEST.

2. If you haven’t got any waterproofs then hot foot it over to @affinity_devon and visit @mountainwarehouse and @trespass. For those of the non-waterproofs persuasion there’s also @ukgap, @nike, @crewclothing, @clarksshoes and more. Although if you have a young daughter then do NOT to mention there’s a @_claires_accessories_ 😂

3. Go to a pub. There’s nothing more English than sheltering from the god awful English weather in a traditional English pub. Eat, drink and be merry in one of the 4 great pubs in our local village of Hartland such as @thehartinn or @hartlandquay

4. Remember when you could just spend all day in the pub? If you have little angels that won’t let you do that anymore (boo!) then there’s always soft play. After over a year of no soft play I actually miss it a tiny bit. Little Stars @themilkyway is excellent, and WOW World of Wonders at the aforementioned @affinity_devon is also fantastic!

5. If you’re not brave enough to embrace getting even wetter and colder by going in the sea (you should though – it’s fun!) then why not go swimming indoors. It’s warmer. There’s a fab play pool with waves and a slide at Bude. No kids? Have a spa day at either @wclubbude or the breathtaking @sourcespasaunton

Whatever the weather – book your holiday to remember!
