Dh MAY have to work while we're away if a job comes up that we really can't afford to turn down.

We're staying near Westward Ho! and I just wondered if anyone local to N Devon know of any internet cafes etc in case he need access. It would save him having to come home .

All advice gratefully received!

Still beaming from Thomcat's great news and totally unable to do any proper work, I found This for you Puff

Except that the link doesn't explain it's a map showing an internet cafe in Barnstaple...doh
but you get the picture, UpMyStreet.com will find you somewhere. I think there was even one in Bideford, even more handy for Westward Ho!

I think most local libraries have them too- even Lyme Regis does

(when I say "them" I mean computers with internet access, of course!)

yeah there is one in bideford

People's Network rocks tamum (unless you are a librarian in which case you have been known to get a bit p*ssed off with your former reference/quiet study room being transformed into a magnet for norty teens and their smutty printouts...)

Thanks folks - you are brill !

Koo - yes please re recommendations - we're staying 5 mins from somewhere called Northam.

Would love to know about some good restaurants for romantic meals out (must contain excitement - me and dh will get some nights out ALONE!), plus child friendly pubs with garden for them to run wild in.

I did ask on another thread about places to go, things to do, and got some good ideas but anything you can add would be most welcome , particularly beaches that are secret gems, only known to the locals !

Koo....OMG another Mnetter from N.Devon...I thought I was the only one!!!!
Im in croyde...where are you?

The Big Sheep. No, really, they have a room of PCs with free internet access in the indoor soft play area. But you probably won't be able to drag yourself out of the ball pit to concentrate on work.

Thanks for the recommendations so far Koo - .

Children are 2, 3 and 4 (one is my niece).

jayzmummy Thu 23-Jun-05 20:39:17

J goes there because he has Autism.
I know your shop!
I board as well....I really am the beached whale when I squeeze my lardy ol' backside into my suit.
Where do you go?


Sorry we have hijacked your thread

The Milk Way is a good place to go for the day...and Killarney Springs is good fun for little ones.
