April 24th 2017: Devon and Cheddar: Murviland

Monty the Motorhome has returned to his birthplace (for the motorhome conversion) and spent the day having his annual health check - well it should be annual, but we missed last year.

Murviland is only 15 minutes drive from our CL of last night, so really handy. We may well use it again in the future.
The Murvi works were a hive of activity, so business seems to be thriving. Mr Murvi himself (also known as Rex) greeted us and sorted out our needs, then whilst all the work was being done we had a walk to the local village of Ivybridge. 
After a cup of overpriced coffee at a little cafe by the river we picked up the ‘Town Trail’ - a way marked route around the village. We have been to Ivybridge before, but never realised how big the place actually is. It lies under the lee of Dartmoor and the village spreads up the lower slopes, making the Town Trail quite steep in places, but the reward is good views.

Monty was really by early afternoon, so we departed and headed to Cheddar.

Our site for the next two days is the Caravan Club site in Cheddar itself. We arrived to find it almost full, which was a surprise considering it is Monday and out of season.
We had a walk around the town to get our bearings and dined at The Bath Arms - veg burger and steak/ale pie.

The weather is turning much colder, with a possibility of snow flurries
