There is approximately 5 acres of land to be explored, with almost 2 acres of mature woodland. The land is managed to allow access in the form of pathways with the remainder allowed to mature during the seasons with wild flowers. We are fortunate to have a wide range of wild flowers, including, Snowdrops, Wild Daffodils and Bluebells. During the Spring and Summer many more wild flowers are to be seen. The benefits to the wildlife is clear to see with many species of butterflies and other insects Seats are available around the land to rest awhile and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this natural environment.

We have lived here for 22 years and in that time have raised a family in a natural and healthy environment. We now find ourselves maintaining and enjoying our surroundings. This seems the perfect time to share our enthusiasm of our home with others whilst allowing us to continue our management of the land..

Location description from owner

The England region

We are situated 2 miles from the market Town of Barnstaple with it's wide variety of shops and Pannier market. A regular bus service runs from outside of our property to either Exmoor, or into town. Connections are then available to many other areas, including coastal resorts with their Blue flag beaches and associated water sports. Barnstaple railway station runs regular train services to the City of Exeter, County Town of Devon and beyond.

Goodleigh

We are located next to and overlook the River Yeo and The Barnstaple to Lynton steam railway which ceased operating in 1935. Efforts are now underway to get parts of the railway operating again. The land at Snapper which includes the "Snapper Halt" station is now maintained by "Exmoor Associates" a charitable organisation. We fully support this project and like to share our knowledge of the project and history with our guests.

This is an ideal location for those people who enjoy to see and hear wildlife. There are many walks available both locally and further afield on Exmoor and the coast.

We aim to promote the use of local businesses which include the New Inn Public house in Goodleigh, which is recommended for it's varied home cooked menu. We use small local businesses in Barnstaple including butchers and delicatessens. Markets are held daily in the Pannier Market where small independent traders operate, we encourage and recommend guests to visit those traders that we have personally dealt with.

We are members of the "National Trust" and are regular visitors to the most local property "Arlington Court" We continue to gain experience and ideas from their land management.

“Lovely apartment, great location in North Devon”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2016

Just out of barnstaple yet surrounded by countryside, snapper mead is in a great location to access all the places of interest along the north coast. It is an apartment but it feels very much as if you are in your own house; very spacious and with everything you could need during your stay. The grounds and gardens are fun to explore - with lots of places to sit outside. A very special place!
