Guests are invited to relax by the stream, or explore the 100 acre farm and enjoy its' wildlife, we often see buzzards and Exmoor's majestic Red Deer.

From the farm there is easy access to footpaths to the moor or around the coast on the famous South West Coast Path. The local bus stops at the top of the drive for those who would like to leave their car behind.
