Christmas in Devon
24.12.2014 - 27.12.2014 8 °C
Matt and I spent a lovely Christmas in Devon. We found a great place to stay on TrustedHousesitters. It's a beautiful cottage surrounded by farmland. We arrived on Christmas Eve and after a mini tour of the area, hunting for Christmas Bon Bons, then unpacking and generally getting organised, we settled down for strawberries, cream and Champagne (yes, I said Champagne) in front of the fire.
The next morning we got up early to call home, then put the turkey and pork shoulder on to roast. Needless to say we had waaaayyyy too much food. But what is Christmas without a little indulgence. We had a lovely brunch of ham steaks and eggs, with more Champagne. : ) Christmas, indulgence.
Once we were finished eating we redecorated their Christmas tree to add a little sparkle and rocked the Christmas Carols
We opened our presents which was a lot of fun, we had wrapped everything individually to make it all that much more fun.
Then we jumped back in the kitchen to do the veggies, dancing away to Christmas carols.
We had an incredibly decadent lunch and then chilled out on the couch and watched some TV.
Later I took the dog for a walk and checked out the gorgeous surroundings.
Boxing day was very quiet, and we headed off on the 27th, checking out the lovely town of Sidmouth on the way.
