Our location puts us in easiy reach of North Devon attractions and award winning beaches as well as the traditional market town of South Molton. We are open all year round and have a number of special breaks that we think you would enjoy. Christmas, New Year, Easter, Halloween and Bonfire Night as well as being great for pamper breaks thanks to our private hot tubs and range of holistic therapies.
North Devon is an excellent location for golf, fishing, walking, cycle trails and horse riding. We are located only 5 miles from Exmoor National Park with its abundant collection of walks, picnic spots and Exmoor ponies and deer.
Back on the farm we have animals for children to feed and enjoy. Spring lambs to bottle feed and take for walks. Spring chicks to handle. (Check with us for dates of bottle feeding and chicks). Collect eggs from our hens and have free donkey rides.
Our baby sitting service (qualified) is ideal for anyone wanting to have an evening out without the children. And to make arriving just that little bit easier, why not take advantage of our pre ordering grocery service and we will put your grocery away for you before you arrive.
