Looking Down On The Fisherman's Cot From Yearlstone Vineyard

A Memory of Bickleigh

Although I have visited this pub for drinks and meals on many occasions, my most recent view of it was unusual!

I took the 55 bus from Tiverton towards Bickleigh and then climbed the steep lane uphill to the nearby Yearlstone Vineyard. My wife Elizabeth, sister-in-law Margaret, and I rewarded ourselves for the steep hike with coffee and cake in the vineyard bistro and sat on their terrace looking south down the Exe Valley.

And down far below us was the Fisherman's Cot - it looked so tiny down below us that it was like looking down on a toy train set with miniature buildings!
