|The view from our B&B over the Otter Valley at Newton Poppleford|
All future B&B stays will be measured against this benchmark.
We wove our time away around Reg Meuross's concert at Sidmouth Folk Festival. Little did we know that when we saw him accompany Jess Vincent at Westonbirt's Tree Fest 3 years ago, we would find ourselves sponsoring the vinyl version of his latest album, which was launched at Sidmouth.
Westonbirt proved to be a pivotal moment in our lives, just as finding the Erigeron steps in my last post was a pivotal moment for my gardening.
The concert was magical, followed by beach side fish and chips and a general soaking up of the festival atmosphere. The next day we discovered the village of Beer, thanks to our B&B hosts and rounded off our stay with a trip on the electric tram at Seaton.
Even better was the lack of internet in our lives for a few days :)
