The West Country region
Handley Farm is ideally situated for exploring Exmoor National Park and the vale of Taunton Deane. The spectacularly rugged north coast of Devon and the coastal resorts of Lynmouth, with its cliff railway, Combe Martin, and Ilfracombe are within easy reach. Woolacombe has a wonderful stretch of wide sandy beach and is a good place for surfing. The sandy beaches of the south coast resorts of Exmouth, Sidmouth and Seaton offer good safe beaches for families and are all less than an hour’s drive away. The National Trust has several houses and gardens in the area worth visiting, including Killerton, Knightshayes, and Arlington Court.
Leisure pursuits include walking, riding, fishing, sailing and cycling, or you can just relax and enjoy the countryside! Handley Farm is close to Wimbleball Lake, where you can go fishing or sailing, and there are numerous waymarked walks around the lake.
Walkers will enjoy exploring the many peaceful lanes and quiet footpaths around Handley Farm, or you can stroll down to our well-stocked coarse fishing lakes (exclusively for guests’use), where you will find a variety of wildlife.
