Twixmas In Topsham

A short hop on the train and Steve and I found ourselves in Topsham one grey afternoon between Christmas and New Year.  A favourite spot of mine for tea and cake consumption and a mooch. I love the array of independent shops and cafes here. It makes Topsham feel special – different from the boring run of the mill chains that you find in many towns the length and breadth of the country. Plus, they have an awesome selection of charity and vintage shops that keep me very much entertained!

Not having had lunch, our first port of call was the newly opened Sara’s Petite Cuisine. An Instagramers dream with the marble table tops and soft furnishings in subtle tones. Very much to my taste but perhaps not so much Steve’s. With the weather being questionable Sara apologised for the lack of cake selection. Baking everything from scratch in the morning she has to ask the question “what will today bring?”. The weather had been apocalyptic earlier so she had limited the amount of baking so as not to have any waste at the end of the day. It didn’t bother me. A delicious Mille-feuille was calling my name as well as a cup of tea. Steve opting for coffee with milk on the side. I am so glad he did because the Udder milk jugs were a genius addition to our table.

From here we took a walk through town (where Steve picked up a flapjack for the journey) and then beyond to the beautiful Goat Walk. One of my favourite walks with views to die for. It really is stunning alongside the water.

Our last stop to warm up before our train home was The Globe. A cosy pub with a log fire. Steve and I managed to bag a fireside seat to defrost. A perfect end to my Twixmas in Topsham.
