Peppercombe House At the weekend one of us came back from holiday and the one who was holding the fort goes to Sweden this Friday: last week's posts were thus in anticipation, this week's are retrospective, a celebration of Devon, rain, time to read, family. We were here, at a National Trust cottage at Peppercombe between Clovelly and Bideford. It was heaven and although London is (now) quiet and empty-feeling, we miss the complete silence at Combe Cottage, which is only accessible on foot up quite a steep track and out of earshot of cars. And in spirit we were not so far from Persephone Books: the Trust has compiled a booklet with before and after photographs showing how utterly 'neglected' (key word from our website) the cottage was before the Trust did it up fifteen years ago.
