DEVON TRIP | PHOTO DIARY



Welcome to my little Devon trip photo-diary! There are many photos here, plus a vlog right at the very bottom if you want to see more of this beautiful place!

We stayed at a little place called 'Start Bay Lookout', right on the cliff edge, by the village of Hallsands, which was sadly taken by the sea in the early 1900's. Hallsands was said to have been founded in the 1600's, but it wasn't until the late 1800's that it had built up into a thriving fishing village, with over 35 houses, a pub and a family-run fishing industry. The lookout point, right by the apartment that we stayed in, has a full timeline of events, telling the story of the village through to its destruction in the 1900's. When you stand on the lookout point, you get to witness the full scale of what occurred and are swiftly reminded at the power of the ocean. Head to my vlog below to see the view from the lookout.

I hope you enjoy these pictures, let me know in the comments if you have visited any of these places!


^^ Start Bay Lookout is a cute, seaside- themed apartment, full of sweet little trinkets ^^
