Footpaths surround our working mixed farm, where we keep Black Welsh Mountain Sheep, Red Devon Cattle and traditional breeds of pigs and chickens. We manage the land under a Higher Level Stewardship scheme, which ensures that the orchids and other wild flowers are preserved and the birds and wildlife flourish. We have our own meat available in season and eggs most days. We can recommend award-winning restaurants and pubs that are worth a journey, great farm shops and markets for superb local produce, and the usual supermarkets. We can arrange quality catering and box delivery on request. Bike hire can be arranged from Colyton and horse riding in the village. Tennis courts are located in Seaton & Sidmouth and there are excellent golf facilities at Honiton, Woodbury, Budleigh Salterton and Exeter.
Rural retreat near the coast: We are located at the end of a small country lane in gently undulating countryside. This part of rural East Devon is surprisingly near the coast; the fishing village of Beer and the unspoilt Branscombe beach, but also not far from the Cathedral City of Exeter and Dartmoor. Great for day-trips to all the beaches of Devon including surfing to Saunton & Croyde. Ideally located for exploring Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Cornwall and many historic National Trust houses and gardens are within easy reach.
