MOOR TO SEA - THE IVY BARN BLOG
We have been granted a premises licence in order to sell alcohol to guests. So if you fancy a glass of wine or a bottle of beer when you arrive just let us know. You can relax on the swing seat or at the table and chairs in the guests' garden overlooking the village, weather permitting of course. It is such a lovely spot to sit. December isn't far away so we are sure Rik will have the mulled wine or cider on and will be making his lovely mince pies for you to taste.
Mothecombe beach is open again for you to take your four legged friend for a run on the beach. The sea is a bit cold but we have seen some brave paddle boarders out there still with no wet suits on. The Schoolhouse is also still open from Wednesday lunch time so after a brisk walk on the beach you can warm up with a hot chocolate or coffee.
We are really pleased to be able to tell you that The Mildmay Colours which closed in January 2019 will be reopening soon. Plans are in hand for it to be re-opened in December in good time for Christmas. We will of course keep you updated as soon as we have more information or if you ring to book we will be happy to update you. We are so excited as The Mildmay Colours is the heart of the village community and it has been sorely missed by many. For those of you who have enjoyed the open mic and jam sessions in the pub this will continue as will the fun quizz nights that Rik and Nicky used to run there.
We would like to thank Michael Patey-Ford for the Holbeton village photo taken on Bank Holiday Monday.
