As we approached our first wedding anniversary with a three month old baby we weren’t sure if our plans of a road trip to celebrate were slightly ambitious and maybe a pub lunch would suffice. But we decided to brave the unknown and boy are we glad we did. Travelling with a baby of this age is actually not as scary as we first thought (as long as you plan ahead and make the most of nap times).
We decided to explore the border of Devon and Dorset staying in a little village called Honiton. It’s usually an area that gets overlooked as you drive through quickly making your way down the coast. For us though it was the perfect base to explore the stunning beaches and countryside villages of this beautiful part of the South.
Perched on the top of a hill overlooking the stunning jurassic coast, The Hix in Lyme Regis is a very rare find. It's informal style is such a breath of fresh air for a seafood restaurant. Welcoming babies and dogs it's got a crab shack feel but with exceptional locally sourced seafood dishes created by world renowned chef Mark Hix. The cockle popcorn was our personal fave.
