All things 'lush' at Connybear Farm!


I hope that my 'newly opened cafe' appeals to you!
LOL ;-)
I just love today's header pic...a big thanks again, to my friend Margaret.
Anyway, if that does not whet your appetite, then here's something else which might, if you are holidaying in South Devon!


A couple of days ago I received a text message...



'Sal, you just have to visit this lush place.'


'It's called Connybear Farm and it's on the back road, between Newton and Torquay.'




Anyone local knows that this is the road to take, if you don't want to be stuck in a very long traffic queue to Torquay, especially during the summer season.







So off I went this morning, with my mum, not knowing quite what to expect.






Well...it wasn't a disappointment!







It was fab..lots of vintage bits mixed with new...





Work in progress too!

A fab allotment!


And what every gal needs when she goes out for the morning...


A place to sit and natter!


With views over a wonderful county.



And take a guess at which blogger I bumped into as I arrived!
I had to check to make sure that she had not got her camera!
And yes, it was a lush morning!
;-)

Do hope that connybear farm doesn't mean that that sneaky road to take to miss the tourists becomes just as blocked with people going to eat those delicious cakes on your header. How could you post such scrumptious fare when I am trying not to eat cake!!!

Rosie said...

The cakes look gorgeous - I'm sitting here with a mug of tea wishing I had a nice slice of cake to go with it:) What a super place to visit - it looks as if you could spend ages there:)

Those cakes look scrumptious!!!!!! I spy a coffee and walnut cake(I always have C & W cake when I go out, noone in my family likes it, so I never make it for myself!!)
Connybear Farm looks like a lovely place to spend a few hours,such lovely things to look at, and so much money to spend, lol!!!
Did you buy anything?, I think I would of been tempted

Hi Sal, what a gorgeous banner!

How lovely it was to see you this morning! What a gorgeous place it is, Connybear Farm .. unfortunately because of my friend's flipflop dilemma we didn't get to stay for tea, but I shall remedy that very soon!
