The plan was for us to leave Rode on Saturday morning, arrive in Dartmouth for lunch, explore, etc, and for Chris & Katie to join us on Sunday morning
Later on we repaired to our room, and relaxed on the four poster (Olivia had a camp bed in a corner!), with Liz unwrapping her prezzies. Around 7pm we wondered down to the bar and had a pre-dinner drink in the company of a lively group of revellers preparing for a pre-Christmas knees up somewhere else in Dartmouth. Dinner was fantastic, and despite choosing several rather pricey items from the menu, I discovered the following morning that it was all included in the price.
The next morning we drove to Totnes to pick up Chris and Katie from the station, then drove back again to Dartmouth for a further wander around the back streets (finding loads of other interesting shops we'd missed the previous day). We lunched in a great Fish & Chip restaurant on the quayside (Rockfish), with a roaring fire and paper tablecloths and crayons for drawing!
After lunch it was time to hit the road - we decided to take a slightly different route back, and caught one of the little ferries to the opposite bank before heading back to Somerset, via Exeter. Despite a bit of rain on the Saturday I was very impressed by Dartmouth, and equally impressed by Brown's....we may be back!
