Broadsands in February 2013

By Bridget & Christopher Bowring, owner of The Quayside Hotel.

A trip to Broadsands was surprisingly enjoyable despite the cold. Only 15 minutes away by car, walkable by the Coastal Path if you are feeling fit!

The beach was busy with dogs and owners making the most of the large sandy beach and two little boys equipped with buckets and spades were exploring the rock pools.

The steam train came rocking by letting out a whistle to the beach huts below, still facing inward in their winter place.

Outside the food caravan visitors sipped steaming mugs of tea and some younger and braver purchased ice creams!

The promenade led up into the hills and over a lovely grassy area great for dogs and walking.

The view of Brixham Lighthouse beyond the pretty bays is stunning and the path tempting – must return when the weather is kinder and follow the path over the hill!
