Gitcombe’s Guide to a Great Family Fun Day Out in Glorious South Devon:

Last Updated on : 29th March 2016

Start the day off with breakfast at The Venus Café, Blackpool Sands Beach.  click here

Feeling energetic after breakfast?  Why not go for a swim or try paddleboarding/kayaking/wind surfing in the safe cove of Blackpool Sands.  (Life guards on duty during peak summer months).

For lunch head to the Anchor Stone Café, Dittisham. click here


2If you are a lover of seafood this is a MUST! In the afternoon while away the hours crabbing off the pontoon at Dittisham.  The target to beat is 256 crabs caught by a family staying at Gitcombe last summer.  (HINT:  The crabs LOVE bacon!)

Whilst the children are happily crabbing, parents can enjoy one of Devon’s local ales from The Ferry Boat Inn (locally known as the FBI). click here (On the first Sunday of the month from April to September the FBI have ‘Rock on the Beach’A great fun day out for all the family with live music, a BBQ and a massive Paella made from scratch).

3When you are all crabbed out, head back to Gitcombe and relax in our outdoor hot tub and admire the stunning views of Dartmoor while little ones splash and have fun in one of our pools.
