It is within easy reach of some of the loveliest beaches of the north Devon and Cornwall coastlines, as well as the wild beauty of Dartmoor and with countless family attractions in between.

You’ll find yourself stepping right into the pages of ‘The Wind in the Willows’. The farmhouse and cottages are surrounded by fields, walks, a 5 acre wood and a fishing lake. There are ducks and geese, swallows, house martins, and you will no doubt find hedgehogs and moles. At sunset you are likely to catch a glimpse of the graceful red deer in the woods, and there is also a large fishing lake, perfect for fly fishing.
