I am looking for someone to do a short talk on the events in Slapton and area in the run up to D-Day for a group of French people who will be visiting in May 2014. Can anyone help?
Hi, about 10 years ago I was in hospital in exeter. An old lady was going in to town. I needed to buy a new mobile phone and asked to go along.
When I got there I saw an amazing place, it had some old roman/Athens looking remains which were very big, and a totally different looking building, it is only the frame left, made of a sort of brown stone with small bubbly holes like a wispa chocolate bar, it was very weathered.
I would like to visit it again, but don't know exactly where it was too.
About 40 minutes bus drive from a hospital in exeter Devon.
Please help me find this place again, I have drawn a picture here;
Thank you for any help.
Any suggestion where I can get a decent street map of Brixham and the surrounding area ?
I was in Brixham a couple of weeks ago and was unable to locate one nor did I find the Information Centre ( I now know it is inside Hob Nobs but how do you know that from the signposts in the harbour ?)
Thanks in advance

Hi, my question was wiped during login, however I wondered fi anyone could recommend a dog friendly beach near to Tavistock or dog friendly places to go this weekend.
I'm staying with a family, but I was shy to ask if it is cold during the night and if I need thicker sleeping clothes, or if they use heating in the house during the night. What is the usual?
Would you please advise me on what would be the best clothes to bring and what shoes for a 2 week stay this June? I had some ladies telling me boots would be fine ( dhgate.com/lady-polly-black-... to wear with a dress. Will I look strange to others by wearing boots in June? Should I bring ballerina shoes?(polyvore.com/ballerina_shoes...
What do people usually wear? I don't want to stand out, just be feminine.
What do you recommend ? What is the weather usually like in June?
We are staying in Exeter in November on a girls weekend. We are looking for somewhere to go on a Saturday night. Ideally somewhere that is open late with music that we can dance to but not a full on club, a bar with music and an area for dancing would be great but with the option to sit and chat as well. Anyone know what the Monkey Suit is like? Or any other suggestions welcome.
I'm traveling from Chicago to Tavistock for a family wedding next week, and plan, at this point, to take one of the local buses from the National Express bus station to Tavistock.

Am shortly taking a short break at Ilfracombe, having never visited before. As traveling via train, I have a pick up from Barnstable to Ilfracombe on my outward journey but would like to know the best transport from Ilfracombe to Barnstable train station on my return. Thank you for any help.
My partner and I are looking for a place to stay in Devon for around 10 days that is relatively 'central'. By this I mean we will be in the middle of a travel web North and South and on relatively good roads. We are considering Beer (because we prefer small, but not too small) and Exeter (because it seems central). We are wary of picking somewhere that looks accessible, but from which we will have to spend 30-45 minutes on tiny laneways just to get out / in. A year or so back we stayed in Falmouth in Cornall, which was exactly what we wanted - a good size with lots of pubs and restaurants, beautiful and a good choice of accommodation. It was also easy to get just about anywhere in Cornwall from there. We fell in love and are looking for similar in Devon. Any suggestions? Also, specifically, what are roads in and out of Beer like?
Hello, I am planning a trip to the UK and I am taking my 75 year old father back to meet up with his sister and husband. I would like to book a property that can sleep up to 8 people.

I have been looking but it is very confusing. There will be my aunt & Uncle..in there seventies, my father, my cousin, myself and partner in there 50's....any idea ? we plan to visit in September

Probably a silly question but my wife and I would like to know if we need to pack insect repellent when we come to SW England in July? Do you have mosquitoes , sandflys or wasps? Alas I'm allergic and swell up a bit if bitten :(
My wife and I have 2 weeks in a rental car going round the south west starting and finishing in Southampton in July before joining the Celebrity Eclipse cruise into the Baltic.
We would like any tips on routes to take and recomended B&Bs / Farm Stays along the way. We want to avoid motorways as much as posible.
We realize July is peak season so if you know of places that wont be too crowded would be great!
