The
Experience

Deep in Devon lanes, skirting wild Exmoor yet sheltered in a quiet green fold, two warm, peaceful boltholes for families or friends. The converted barn is neat and tidy with a log-burner in the sitting room for chilly nights. Bedrooms are snug (two are under the eaves but you won’t hit your head) and there’s a downstairs bunkroom to keep kids happy. You can whip up suppers in the spotless kitchen and dine on the patio while children run freely through 53 acres of farmland – they’re totally safe and will love the treehouse, chickens (there’s a rota!) and purring cats. The cottage is comfy and so easy for families with plenty to amuse you on rainy days. Step into a pretty kitchen, there’s open plan living/dining downstairs and pleasant bedrooms up. You can barbecue down at the lake, play pool in an outbuilding, listen out for owls. Amanda and Adrian are chatty, down to earth, and full of ideas and energy. But you can be as energetic (or not) as you wish. You’re close to coast, moors and Barnstaple, a mile from the Tarka Trail, ringed by a constellation of villages with pubs and shops, buried in a pocket of peace.

Local points of interest from Amanda Budd

  • An abundance of wildlife to photograph from our hide: deer, buzzards, foxes, hares and a resident otter family. Stunning landscapes to paint or photograph, ask for further details on the exclusive use of our art studio at the lakehouse.
  • Love North Devon is an idyllic Georgian 53 acre organic estate in the heart of a south facing valley, on the edge of Exmoor in North Devon. Not only are we suitable for families but Love North Devon is great for couples who want to get away from it all.
  • An abundance of Farm Shops, Cider Orchards and quaint country Gastro Pubs all serving award winning home-cooked food, all within a 5-mile radius. The market towns of South Molten, Ilfracombe and Barnstaple have daily markets to explore.
  • Explore our ancient broadleaf woods, play in our treehouse, Swim or Fish in the fresh water Lake, or for the brave, glide off our 40ft long water side. No need to leave the farm.
  • Exmoor Zoo, NT Arlington Court, RHS Rosemoor, North Devon coastline and the long golden sandy beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde all within a 15-minute drive. Full and comprehensive guests guides in the Barn
  • Delicious Devon Welcome Pack on arrival, choice of Teas and Coffee, often seasonal vegtables from our organic garden, plenty of eggs, cider and our famous Cardiac Chocolate Cake or Devon Cream Tea.
