Holidays In Downderry - a Memory of Downderry.

Uncle Tim owned the left side of Tremmor Cottage, next to St Nicolas Church, as a holiday home. He would let it out privately to friends and family. Subsequently he changed his holiday venue to the house next door - Firside Cottage. Unfortunately he took up permanent residence there a few years ago.
Thus my last family holiday in Downderry was six years ago. However, some of us did visit Downderry for a day this summer while staying in Dartmouth. It was great to be back after six years.

Downderry will always be a great figure-head of my nostalgic childhood memories as we used to go there for family holidays almost every summer.
