An Easter Weekend in Chagford, Devon - 12th April 2009

Nosher, Isobel and Fred head down to see Sis and Matt in Chagford, Devon. Instead of the 6-hours-on-a-good-day flog down the motorway fighting the bank-holiday traffic, we decide to fly from Norwich to Exeter and get a hire car for the final stretch, a plan which totally rocks, with a much more relaxed door-to-door journey of around 3.5 hours - or about half the time. Once there, we visit the allotment to see what's going on, go out for dinner at The Globe in Chagford and drive over Dartmoor to visit Mother and Mike.
