Living in Plymouth definitely has its perks, one of which being that its right slap bang in the West Country and being in the west country means that we have the best of both worlds-access to the stunning countryside and being down the road from the coast.
I recently went to Teignmouth which is just under an hours drive from Plymouth and although the Autumn weather made it a tad chilly by the sea, the views and quaintness of the seaside town makes up for it.
If you’re ever going to go to this seaside town, the arcades on the pier are a must but this time we just played a bit of a kick about on the beach and did a bit of geo-caching, which is kind of like searching around for hidden stuff and signing it. If you’ve never heard of it before, Google it and give it a try (especially if you’re competitive!).
I’ve lived in Devon all of my life so have always been able to visit places like Teignmouth. I can understand how people from up north can appreciate it so much more, but that’s not to say I don’t take it all in down here or that I’ve ever gotten bored of it. I think that next time I decide to go to the beach I'll have to wait for the summer to roll around again, so in the mean time I think I'll take a crack at some of the other places around Plymouth that are on offer.
