The Lookout from Ladram – July 2022

The sun has arrived here at Ladram Bay and we’re all looking forward to a busy summer season – we hope you are too. 

We’d like to say a big thank you to all of you who have commented on the cleanliness of the park and how nice the grounds are looking. We must admit, the flowerbeds are some of the best we’ve seen on any park, so a big shout out to all the hard-working gardeners and grounds teams. A big thank you, too, to the whole team here at Ladram Bay for dealing with everything that gets thrown at them on a day-to-day basis. We’re sure you’ll agree they’re all superstars. 

There’s been some famous faces here at Ladram Bay over the last few months. It’s been great to have been showcased on both ITV’s This Morning when we welcomed Josie Gibson to the park – airing in August – and Channel 4’s Best of British By The Sea earlier this year with Ainsley Harriott and Grace Dent. It’s wonderful to see our park get recognised nationally. It was also great to invite Exeter City Football Club for lunch as part of their pre-season schedule earlier this month. It never stops!

We’ve got various street food vendors coming our way throughout the summer months as well. Please let us know which ones you enjoy and we’ll make sure they keep coming back.

We’re pleased to introduce our recent Team Stars to you – these are the team members who shine in their roles and help create five-star stays. Make sure to say congratulations to them when you next see them.  

Sales 

Following a two-year absence, we’re very excited that we can host our ever-popular owner’s events once again.

Having sold almost all of our holiday homes by virtual tour for the past two years, we’re delighted that we currently have a limited range of holiday homes that can potentially be ready within a week or two, in time for a superb summer season.

The Three Rocks

We’re lucky to have so many of our amazing team returning from seasons past so look out for familiar faces.

Basking in the sunshine has inspired the bar team and we’re excited to introduce our Summer Cocktail menu as the fairly fruity and the magnificently magical emerge from their creative minds! It’s getting heated in here as the team compete in their summer incentive to see whose cocktail is the most popular. Let us know your favourites and tag us in your posts and stories with #pebblesatladram.

As always, we’ve found our selection of Small Plates to be proving hugely popular amongst you, if you haven’t had a chance to indulge, make time in the sun. Check out our specials board as Caroline and the team introduce us to some of their creations. This month we’ve seen some delicious choices including pan-fried Tuna Steak, Roasted Lamb Shank, Chilli & Pepper-Crusted Swordfish and fresh Scallops with Black Pudding.

To save disappointment, remember to book your restaurant reservations via the app, website, email or at the host desk, with forward planning advised.
