The Lookout from Ladram
A warm welcome to 2019…
After a successful winter we’re very much looking forward to what is all set to be another sensational season at Ladram Bay.
We’re not sure we can promise the weather of 2018 but be sure that your holiday will be just as hot with plenty going on throughout the season.
The Three Rocks
At the Three Rocks Complex, we are really excited to kick start our 2019 season. This year we are looking to expand our beverage options further with the addition of Strongbow Dark Fruits as well as Tarka 4 – a local lager on draught. We will be stocking a number of locally-sourced choices including an increased range of Luscombe products, plus a more contemporary choice of craft cola and lemonade.
With a keen focus towards increasing demand, we will be providing a late-night food service in Waves Bar during weekends and at peak times. This will include our delicious, homemade pizzas, nachos, cheesy chips and more. Further to this, Ozzie’s Shop will be expanding its product range with various toys being introduced as well as different confectionary.
Over the winter period, our Head Chef Matt has been lucky enough to have explored South-East Asia, which has had a great impact on the direction of the new menu. Aside from the Asian influences it also inhabits a greater connection with our region of Devon; with more attention given towards locally-sourced ingredients and use of dishes traditional to the southwest area. This has also meant that we will be expanding our use of local suppliers too.
Kitchen development has not only laid way to a change in dishes, menu themes and plating styles, but has also meant that we have invested in new equipment- such as a stone-base pizza oven.
We’re delighted to be welcoming back most of the old team in time for another fun-filled season alongside some new friendly faces.
We’re pleased to introduce a subtle change in aesthetics as the central grocery area has been altered to a lower level of displays. Please do come and see our new gift area with a more linear display and additional bespoke to Ladram products.
A new faster, seamless service and provision down at the Beach shack has been confirmed with the addition of a second till terminal and the introduction of a new oven for hot pasties and treats. Sarah and Sam are very excited for another season, are hoping for another ‘warm one’ and look forward to seeing you soon.
We have a great selection of 2019 holiday homes that will be on the showground should wish to have a sneak preview. We also have a superb variety of new pitches should you perhaps be considering Holiday Home Ownership at Ladram Bay. Prices start from just £19,950 – pop into the Sales Office or call the team on 01395 568398 to find out more.
Last year was an exciting time for us at Coast, the main highlight was achieving The Good Chippy Award 2019. Huge thanks to all that may have voted for us, it has been an enormous boost to our team knowing we are so respected by our customers.
This season we are looking more at the vast array of customers’ needs in regards to dietary requirements, such as Vegan and Gluten Free options. Through the winter we have been working with our suppliers to find suitable products that can be served so that no one gets left out at meal times. Please call in to see the menu or ask for details.
Our gluten free menu will still be served on a Monday, Thursday and Sunday, However as always our chips are allergen free at any day of the week.
Sports & Leisure
Ian & the team would like to welcome you back for the 2019 season and can’t wait to see you again. It might still be a bit chilly outdoors but its lovely and toasty in the pool so be sure to come and say hi whilst taking a dip.
For the more adventurous, we are still offering our great Start activities which include our impressive Climbing Wall sessions plus popular Aqua jets activity (new for 2018) with something special potentially on the way too!
Goodbye to Lynne Hodge
After 12 years of dedication heading up the accounts department at Ladram Bay, Lynne Hodge will be retiring in April. Whilst we’ll be sad to see her go, we look forward to hearing of her motorhome adventures around Europe – we’ll be sure to give her a premium pitch upon her return to holiday here! Best of luck Lynne and thank you very much for your commitment.
