Initially we were disappointed by Wooli; the ridiculous amount we had paid, combined with the “generous” photo’s on the web ( the owners are estate agents, what did we expect!), meant that we thought we were in some luxurious lodges for Christmas.

We stayed our first week in the seaside town of Seaton. A slightly jarring mix of quaint old and grotty new, applicable in equal amounts to architecture and clientele. The slightly crusty element does have advantages though, one being Byrne Jones, a cross between a museum of Victorian grooming products (one suspects they still crush the local stones for toothpaste) and an ultra-modern photo reprographic laboratory. Our one successful purchase though
