How fate intervened and Tobago was born
Why Bexhill, and why Tobago?
In one of those slightly tipsy meals out, where you plan your future and talk about your dreams, Julian and Catherine Lloyd Evans hit upon the ingenious plan of buying one of the iconic 1960s ‘Caribbean’ Bexhill flats, and doing it up ‘all mid-century style’. “It’ll be so cool,” they said “We can get an old record-player in there, and have proper British Ercol furniture and orange walls, and we’ll let it out especially to weekenders looking to escape the hustle of London. Bexhill’s the new Brighton – with the promenade recently tarted up and the De La Warr pavillion on the doorstep, not to mention Di Paolo’s gelato ice creams. It’s a lovely place to visit.”
Now, normally, with these alcohol enthused conversations, that would be the end of it.
But fate intervened, in the form of a sharp nail.
On Sunday, as the Julian and Catherine piled belongings and daughters into the car after a half-term visit to the grandparents, Catherine’s dad peered closely at the car. “There’s a nail in that tyre.” he said. Julian ended up getting the train back up to London in the morning, while Catherine and the girls waited for a new tyre to be fitted.
One obligatory ice cream with the girls at Di Paolo’s later, Catherine decided she might as well pop into some estate agents to ‘just see’ about seaside flats.
One manic week later they’d put an offer in on Tobago. 6 months later it was theirs. 6 months after fabulous builder and renovator Wolfie had worked his magic, it was ready for its first guests.
