A few days around Bere Ferrers

Not so much a blog as a photo-montage to give a flavour of our few days around this lovely quiet backwater.

Arrival in plenty of time for a nice Sunday lunch at the local Olde Plough Inn before checking into our B&B … with rather a lovely view over the Tavy estuary.

And here it is at water level, with the Church of St Andrew, which helpfully is adorned with some wonderful banners depicting the town’s location on the peninsula (that’s what ‘Bere’ actually means in fact)…

   

And here’s an external view…

We did some adventurous walking involving negotiating unexpectedly boggy ground and frisky cows, but we survived.

Let’s not forget the football. Tavistock put up a good fight but the Bluebirds won 6-0 and Ian was chuffed to get such a close-up view of the team. It was a pleasant evening in a nice little ground, but you couldn’t help thinking an even playing field would have been fairer, both metaphorically and literally. It was a tad undulating.

 

Today we’ve had a day out by train, on the Tamar Valley Line up to Calstock, where we had a dramatic arrival over the impressive viaduct, crossing the Tamar into Cornwall. Plenty of walking from there to the National Trust property at Cotehele and around its impressive environs: woodland, gardens, mill, craft shops, quay and the house itself. The latter was a bit oppressive being filled with ancient dark tapestries and no electricity, but the outdoor parts were great. We had comfortable cloud cover on and off, and even the odd shower of rain!
