Feel free to unwind in easy-going spaces with decades of input from family and friends: handcrafted furniture, well-travelled rugs, recycled fabrics, local pottery and paintings. Wander in the rambling, wildlife-friendly garden – see hares and stoats, butterflies and bees; find old outbuildings busy with the making of pots, and boards for surf and snow.
Come with the family; there’s plenty of kitchen kit to cook good local food and children love the space to roam. Come with your yoga group; the barn has the perfect sprung floor. Sit under the stars, play the piano, finish that book or choose one to settle down with by the fire.
Bring boots and binoculars and combine bird-watching – peregrine falcons thrive here – with walking a spectacular stretch of the SW Coast Path and visits to Docton Mill and Hartland Abbey gardens. Go swimming, surfing and cycling, take a boat trip from Clovelly or a day out to Lundy Island from Bideford.
