Inspiring views and great food at Leonard’s Cove in Devon
Thinking of booking a holiday? Well I recommend Leonards Cove Holiday Park in Devon. As I have written before, the views from Leonard’s Cove are stunning and it’s a great base from which to explore the beautiful countryside of the South Hams area in Devon, including one of my favourite places in the world, the waterside town of Dartmouth.
I recently spent a week at Leonard’s Cove working working on a book – and it really was the perfect place for inspiration and peace. I rented the same lodge as I’d stayed in before (you can see some pictures here).
Located in the village of Stoke Fleming in the beautiful South Hams district, Leonard’s Cove boasts stunning views out across Start Bay and a range of accommodation from camping pitches to mobile homes, lodges and cottages.
I stayed in and cooked most evenings in a break between writing but on my last night I was treated to dinner by the owner at Leonard’s Cove at his restaurant Radius 7, a short stroll from the lodge. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the place was obviously popular with locals, which is always a good sign in touristy areas.
I settled down with a nice glass of wine… To start I had home-made bread and dips, which were delicious. My main a Radius 7 burger, made, as with everything they offer, with local beef. It was perfect – and cooked just right.
I normally skip desserts but could resist trying a couple of scoops of Dartmouth Dairy Ice Cream – and I’m glad I did, as it was delicious.
Next time I stay at Leonard’s Cove I’ll definitely be eating at Radius 7 again.
