Following on from her book of the same title, Sue will transport you to all parts of our coastline and introduce you to many different fascinating women.

Coach visit to Cadhay and Ottery St Mary (Friends Only Event)

Come and join us on a day out to Devon!
We start the visit with a tour of the splendid church at Ottery St Mary (with Flower Festival) which was first consecrated in 1260 and which has been described as
‘Exeter Cathedral in miniature’.
Lunch is then booked at the local garden centre (not included in the ticket price), after which the afternoon will be spent at Cadhay with a guided tour of the beautiful
Tudor house and a cream tea to finish. Built in 1550 with a few later additions, Cadhay is a stunning example of a 16th century manor house, which has stayed the
test of time, having survived the centuries in various states of love and neglect. It is now owned by furniture maker Rupert Thistlethwayte, a direct descendent of the
original Poulett family, who has spent the last 10 years restoring the beautiful house and gardens.
