The West Country region

Bussells Farm nestles in the beautiful Exe valley between Exeter and Tiverton. This is the ideal position to explore and experience all that Devon has to offer.

A five mile trip through the country lanes and reach Crealy Park, easily the best childrens' play park in Devon!

To the South lay the beaches of Exmouth and Torbay and beyond to Plymouth with its fabulous harbour and old town Barbican.

Travel West and you soon reach Dartmoor and its beauty, peace and tranquility. Something for everyone, with Bussells as the perfect base.


In the immediate area is the lovely Devon countryside with its many small villages and local pubs. Ideal for walking or riding. Two miles away across the fields, is the National Trust property of Killerton House with a great programme of summer events. Four miles away, over the hill, is the ancient city of Exeter, the Cathedral, the Quay, the restaurants, and shopping!
