In praise of 'Brit Stops' and the Grampus Inn

Post by Geofffry on Thu Oct 11, 2012 3:51 pm

At the recent Shepton Mallet motor-home show, we signed up to 'Brit Stops', the scheme to provide free, overnight stops for motor homes. Following 5 days at Pentewan Sands in Cornwall ( great site ) we made our way up to the north Devon coast, to the little coastal village of Lee, near Ilfracombe. We selected this, as it is the location of the Grampus Inn, listed in the Brit Stops handbook. This was of special interest to Sue
( the other half ) and myself, as we are keen, amateur musicians and the Grampus has acoustic, open mic night on Fridays. Having phoned ahead, we could not have been made more welcome... we had a free, level pitch in the car-park, 50 feet from the pub door... we enjoyed an excellent meal in the bar ( not a Brit Stop requirement, but a courtesy, as we had to eat anyway ) and the played music with a bunch of excellent musicians, til about 12.30! Can't recommend the Grampus too highly... or Brit Stops for having them on the list. Try it, you'll like it!

Hello Geofffry,

We were interested to hear about your `Brit Stop' stay at the Grampus Inn. We live very close to Lee (in Ilfracombe) and have walked over the Tors to Lee many times sometimes stopping at the Grampus for refreshments and a bite to eat.

Before the current owners there used to be a charity `its a knockout' type games held in Lee Called the `Grampus Games' which was fun and as part of the winning team 2 years running we won a trip to Lundy Island. Lundy Island is another great place to visit but you have to leave your motorhome on the mainland!

We might have to have a look at `Brit Stop' to see if it is worth us joining. drinksallround
