Our Ten Favourite Benches, No. 1

The first of our favourite benches

Puslinch Bridge, Yealmpton, south Devon

At the head of the River Yealm, queues of butterflies and a commonwealth of wildflowers mob the bench near Puslinch Bridge. It's a cacophony of very nice noise as Cirl Buntings hunt down chirruping grasshoppers. You might feel like a trespasser. Don't. Spread out a blanket on the bank, dunk your toes in the water and let nature irrigate your weary soul. This is an area of outstanding natural magic.

Take a Breather

Exactly what a holiday is for. And we believe the West Country is one of the best places to stop and take a breather, or experience a view that will take your breath away.
