They follow on from two walks books covering the length of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and will continue along the entire length of the South West Coast Path between Poole and Minehead.

The spectacular scenery along the 630 miles of the South West Coast Path is enjoyed by thousands of walkers every year, each location has a story to tell about the processes that have shaped it. These books will help you learn as you walk, gaining knowledge that can only enhance your enjoyment.

Today, as we had no guests arriving we met up with friends to spend a day at Newton Abbot Racecourse. The racecourse is only 8 miles away from our guesthouse and is a real fun day out whether you are a betting novice like me or a gambling professional. Normal admission prices are from £12.00 but every meet that takes place on a Monday offers a two for one offer.

Unfortunately, although some of us had success on the gee gees, Steve and I only managed some seconds and thirds but the atmosphere was so addictive it was just fun to have a flutter!

The next fixture is on Tuesday 14th June and is an evening meet - see you there!
