A sunny Sunday in South Devon :-)

This is Torbryan, in South Devon.

There isn't much in this little hamlet 

but what there is, is very lovely.

You can't beat a sunny Sunday in South Devon and whilst the holidaymakers

who have already arrived in their droves, head to the popular 'touristy' places,

we head to the Devon lanes and the beauty of birdsong and relative peace.

Torbryan has a church and it also has an inn...The Church House Inn.

It's a delightful inn, with a restaurant and accommodation.

The Church House Inn was built in the 13th century. 

It has many interesting features,

including beams and oak panelling.

There were many church houses in Devon, which were used for parish feasts,

at this time. Later on, many church houses became inns.

Torbryan was once on the main stage route from London to Plymouth.

South Devon at its very best!

looks utterly beautiful - so nice when you can find somewhere off the beaten track and away from the grockels especially now the summer season is coming!
