1 of 3 luxurious detached barns on working farm close to exmoor national park a stay here at this private 650 acre estate is a real country experience, superb views over open countryside and lovely private walks direct from the door. conveniently located on the edge of exmoor national park yet only 40 minutes from the glorious beaches of saunton sands and woolacombe (ideal for surfers and bathers alike). The estate is home to one of the largest herds of heritage ruby red devon cattle in the country and the owners are passionate about sharing the countryside experience. You can make the most of the countryside and location with a night safari hosted by their own gamekeeper with possible sightings of deer, otters, barn owls and other wildlife. You can also indulge in the luxury of hiring the onsite chef to cook a meal or two during your stay. Barbeque packs of farm produced meat are usually available offering farm fresh food with low food miles! or why not buy an arrival ready meal. If you have the chance to venture away from the estate, you are only a short drive from south molton where you can browse around an array of shops, supermarket and numerous pubs and restaurants and visit the popular cattle and pannier markets. The towns of barnstaple (15 miles) and tiverton (17 miles) have theatres, cinemas and many more shops and restaurants. all properties have impressive exposed oak beams and vaulted ceilings.
