Bank Holiday Fun

Posted by theglobeinn on August 25, 2017

Rolling countryside, sandy beaches, coastal paths and cosy creeks; South Devon is the ideal location, whether it’s for a short break away or a large family holiday.  There are so many things to see and do in the area around Frogmore; we are truly very lucky!

And with the Bank Holiday weekend bearing down on us, what is going on in our local area for people to see and do?  Here are just of the events we have discovered:

26th - 28th - Hope Cove Weekend

Three days of good old-fashioned family fun - children's races and sandcastle competitions, live music, entertainment, food and drink.

25th - 28th - Bank Holiday Rails And Ales

This August Bank Holiday, come to the South Devon Railway at Buckfastleigh for a feast of steam and diesel trains - and our famous beer and cider festival too! For this and other events visit

26th - 3th September - Dartmoor Walking Festival

A chance to explore the moors in an event sponsored by the Dartmoor National Park.

28th - Aveton Gifford Classic Car Show (Bank Holiday Monday)

The show attracts an eclectic mix of classic and vintage cars with something for everyone and has a friendly village fete atmosphere. Let's hope it's a sunny day! Aveton Gifford Classic Car Show

Landlord of The Globe Inn at Frogmore, John Horsley, said: “Whether you are after attractions, activities, beaches, museums, walks, and so much more – there is something for everyone you will be spoilt for choice.

“One of the things we enjoy the most when we not working behind the bar are the local beaches and for anyone taking a holiday in South Devon, their break won’t be complete without visiting one of the many beautiful parts of our coastline. From small secluded coves, to large golden sands, South Devon beaches are perfect for family days out, or long walks to enjoy the scenery.”

The Globe Inn is ideally situated as a base for a short break in the South Devon countryside, offering stunning on site accommodation or food options, including take away, for people staying nearby.

John continued: “We keep a lot of tourist information at the pub, so if you are stuck for ideas, why not pop in for a bit to eat or a drink and we can talk you through the things to see and do in the local area.”
