Knowing the nice weather is due to break, himself suggested a walk and lunch out at Sharpham, an estate on the river Dart, that has it’s own vineyard, with award winning wines, and a dairy that produces some of our favourite cheeses. I didn’t take much persuading!
It’s been a few years since the last time we visited, but I think we should come more often as the views are spectacular. Last time the dairy wasn’t even built, and the estate manager sent his dog with us to show us the walking route, and we have fond memories of the old labrador, who clearly enjoyed taking visitors around and making it clear the longer route was the one we would be taking. The dog is now gone, and the dairy building and cafe in place, but the river and walk and the vines are much the same. A really beautiful place
