Hartland in Devon - a breath of fresh air - amidst a flurry of flowers

Snowdrops  have naturalised in the woods over the years -

spreading down through the woods to the torrents of water below

So many walks - my favourite was the walk from Stoke - with its its high church tower - used it is said by mariners passing through on the turbulent seas -  as a marker -we certainly used it when we took a wrong turn - because our garden looked out towards the church

-Yes we started in Stoke  onto Hartland Quay - followed the coastline from Hartland Quay to Hartland Point 
Interesting walking countryside and a snapshot from every which way - and I took a few!!
Favourite walk for me was through the woods towards Blackpool and the Mill Cottage
- it was muddy along the pathways
but well worth it -
and to catch a glimpse through the trees of 'Barton Cottage' as it was called in 2008 - the cottage was used in scenes in the BBC adaptation of Sense and Sensibilty
The video  below - gives a quick glimpse of Blackpool Mill and the woods beyond
Blackpool Mill Cottage  belongs to the National Trust and can be hired out for weekly lets or short breaks - it is a blast from the past with no TV etc - but an idyllic spot

 Linking to Our World Tuesday - enjoy your week - Jane
