The Lookout from Ladram – June 2019

As the weather warms up we’re looking forward to a hot, fun-filled summer at Ladram Bay and we’ve been pulling out all the stops to prepare for this year’s busiest period!

In addition to the many improvements within our individual departments, we’re pleased to have developed Pebbles Restaurant Balcony, with the inclusion of new furniture and an extended roof to provide shelter/shade in all types of weather. 

Our new Coastal landscaping planting scheme on park aimed to enhance our stunning location is well underway. The new car park entrance and brightly coloured flowerbeds are certainly looking 5 star.

Our Teamstar of the Month awards are well underway and we’re pleased to announce the star employee for March was talented Chef Lucy Doyle, of Pebbles Kitchen team. Lucy worked very hard prior to the start of the season to assist Head Chef Matt in creating our menu (even developing some ideas while away on holiday!) She helped preparing the kitchen, assisting with front of house projects and Complex paperwork – all while encapsulating the Ladram spirit.

We’d love to feature in the Top 100 sites for 2020 with Practical Caravan & Practical Motorhome. Vote for Ladram Bay as your favourite site here.

The Three Rocks

We’ve had a sensational start to 2019!
Our menu has been greatly received and we have been producing a number of exciting dishes, so keep a look out for the specials board. Favourites have included Hake, Seabass, Calzones and finally, Ladram Lobster, caught in our very own Bay. Hopefully you have had a chance to taste our stone baked pizzas. For increasingly daring toppings, look to Pizza of the Week.

Additionally, our extensive range continues to grow. We are now also stocking the Old Mout Cider range and Samford Devon Red. Ask the team if you fancy trying something new!

We are excited to announce the new addition of our extended balcony in Pebbles Restaurant – the finished product will provide cover on those wet and windy days! We have also had the great addition of the outdoor sofas and dog drinking station.

Holiday Home Ownership

An amazing opportunity has arisen …The Swift Toronto sits on a prime front row pitch within Portland View and boasts glorious uninterrupted sea and coastal views from its elevated position. The Swift Toronto’s internal colour scheme and décor fits in perfectly with Ladram’s seaside environment. The home offers high specification features & a generous living space. 

It boasts an extended front and side decking area ideal for enjoying al-fresco dining with friends and family in the summer months, whilst enjoying the ever-changing landscape. The exclusive Lodge development within Portland View is accessed via its own private entrance and sits within lovely, well-tended gardens. The Swift Toronto offers the perfect holiday retreat on the Jurassic Coast.

Sports and Leisure

With the summer fast approaching, our splash zone is ready to keep you cool on a hot day or the sauna & steam room is available now to aid relaxation. Whatever the weather, we are all excited to see you. 

We are always trying to add new offerings or equipment to the department and this year is no exception. We have just started taking bookings for our brand-new activity, Hover Archery! With our ambidextrous bows and soft tipped arrows, see if you can hit the bullseye or knock down the floating balls in the inflatable target range. Hover Archery is running throughout the summer and anyone aged 6 and above can come and try their luck at this fun & exciting new activity here at Ladram Bay.

We’d absolutely love to share your old holiday photographs of memories gone by on social media for #ThrowbackThursday. Do feel free to send your best pictures to carlanewman@ladrambay.co.uk. Huge thanks to Mr & Mrs Spindler of FO27, who sent this brilliant photo of their daughter outside our Gypsy Wagons 35 years ago.
