Yesterday we introduced our neighbours The Devon Fudge Company (you can read all about it in our previous post!) and today we would like to introduce The Devon Beach Company! A charming business based a little further down the road than our fudgey neighbours. Gordie and Marilu brought The Devon Beach Company to life in 2015. Although the company was initially proposed as an online business, during the summer months Gordie and Marilu decided to open the first Devon Beach Company shop in Churchstow, Devon!
The wonderful Devon Beach Company products are inspired by the gorgeous surroundings of the South Hams and allow all to introduce some of the beautiful coast into our hearts and homes, no matter where we live! All their products are influenced by the serenity and beauty of the local landscape, sea and sky. Deep blues, natural textures and subtle finishes all chosen to create chic coastal living where ever you call home.
Whether designed in-house or sourced from around the world, their range has award winning, eco-friendly and truly functional features. From comfy cushions and bean bags to kitchen couture and luscious lighting, all naturally influenced, to help bring a relaxed coastal mood to your home.
We also adore their luxurious beach range including their bestselling hooded ponchos, Turkish towels and sand free mat which will make any trip to the beach feel like a breeze!
The Devon Beach Company are also able to take bespoke soft furnishing orders for your home, rental property or boat.
We have one beautiful apron designed by The Devon Beach company to be won, along with a box of our popcorn! Just pop over to our social media pages (Instagram, Facebook or Twitter) and follow the directions! (This competition launches at 5pm tonight)
It’s December 1st, which means that it’s Day 1 of our Christmas Advent Competition! EXCITING! Our first wonderful partner is Atlantic Surf Company. We love that they are from Devon, just like us, and we love all their clothing too!
Atlantic Surf Company makes cool, funky, eco conscious clothing in deepest Devon. They hand screen print their surf inspired clothing and have created a fresh new look and style which we just can’t get enough of!
Atlantic Surf Company have also teamed up with The Wave Project, a charity that changes the lives of young people through the magic of surfing! The Wave Project began in 2010, when the local NHS Trust in Cornwall funded The Wave Project to run a six-week pilot scheme, to examine the benefits of surfing on the emotional health of young people working with professional services. The pilot project used a psychological evaluation to assess whether six weeks of surfing helped the group, who were referred by a range of services such as CAMHS, social services and mental health charities.
The results of the pilot showed that going surfing once a week helped people feel more confident, improved their outlook and gave them a sense of fun. Encouraged by the results, The Wave Project was established as a not for profit company. Atlantic Surf Company give 10% of all profits to this charity to keep this amazing project running!

If you haven’t heard already, this Christmas we are running our biggest competition to date: 24 days of wonderful competitions, with 31 prizes to be won! Each day we are working with a different company, offering very exciting prizes (which of course all include a box of Portlebay Popcorn!).
It’s now Day 2 of our marvellous advent competition, and we have teamed up with the very, very cool team at Jubël!
Jubël? What’s Jubël do I hear you say? Jubël means ‘a feeling of joy’. Although this doesn’t tell us exactly what the Jubël product is, you can’t deny that it’s already sounding exciting!
Jubël was born in the Alps at an après ski bar, when co-founders Tom and Jesse discovered a popular beer tradition, known locally as a “demi-pèche”. This alternative take on a shandy blends the syrupy sweetness of peach, with the refreshing taste of a classic beer, warming you from your ski socks to your fetching bobble hat! Finding nothing like it back home, they decided to bring peach to the people, and so quit their jobs to launch the beer, brand and business in Cornwall.
Jubël bridges the gap between bland beers and super sweet ciders as a natural peach lager and at 4% ABV it is refreshing, easy-drinking and perfectly balanced. Jubël launched in May 2017, and is now available in 250+ pubs and bars across the South West, from Bristol to Lands End!
Don’t forget to enter our Portlebay Advent Competition! Just head over to our social media pages (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) to be in with a chance to win some very exciting goodies! GOOD LUCK! (This competition launches at 5pm tonight!).
If there’s one thing we like better than making and selling all of our lovely handmade produce, it’s working with other people who love to do the same.
