Enjoying A Riviera Early Summer
Well, I think it’s fair to say we deserved the wonderful weather we enjoyed in May.
After the often soggy winter months, the May Day bank holiday was an absolute belter, with the sun beating down on the English Riviera and showing off the area to its best. Thoroughly delightful. That was then followed by a really dry spell throughout the month, culminating in a superb Whitsun Week.
The threats of heavy rain and thunderstorms completely missed us and we had many guests enjoying a few drinks on our Garden Terrace. Days out of the on the beach or taking a trip on the award winning ‘Round Robin’ seemed especially popular ways to spend some time. The latter is wonderful way to explore South Devon, involving steam train, river boat and bus. More details are below – recommended!
When you’re not out exploring and enjoying the local area, there’s also our nicely secluded garden at The Somerville to sit in and enjoy at your leisure. It’s a great asset of which we are rather proud – and it’s now starting to come out in bloom properly. The hanging baskets, beddings plants and roses – of which we have a good, large selection – are all looking.
It may be warmer weather, but we’ve introduced a monthly special to our hot choices on our breakfast menu – and we’ve very pleased with how well they’ve been going. The biggest surprise so far was the toasted muffin with smashed avocado, topped with poached eggs and gratinated with Parmesan cheese.
Of course, some meat eaters will be saying “it’s vegetarian” as if that’s something wrong, but whatever the ingredients, it is truly delicious! Now, what shall we do for June …
