A couple are able to look out their window every day and see Ladram Bay – even though they live 50 miles away from the East Devon beauty spot.

Sharon Sweet, who lives in Bridgwater, Somerset, with her husband Garry, has turned her garden wall into a giant canvas for a painting of the scene she has enjoyed on family visits to Ladram Bay Holiday Park, near Otterton.

The 48-square-foot artwork shows the beach with its landmark off-shore sea stack, and even includes the couple’s three sons - Max, Sam and Jay – on paddle boards.

Sharon and Garry first started visiting Ladram Bay Holiday Park 10 years ago.

“After the park re-opened in July, we booked a holiday at the park and arranged for the painting to be completed while we were away – and the result is absolutely fantastic,” said Sharon.
