We are 15 to 20 minutes drive to the stunning Jurassic Coastline, recently awarded World Heritage Status. Historic Sidmouth is the closest beach, a mixture of shingle and sand at low tide. The pretty fishing villlages of Beer and Branscombe are only a few minutes more, both shingle. The famous Cobb and beaches at Lyme Regis are about 40 minutes away and are a very popular family day out. The golden sands and sand dunes of Exmouth are also about a 40 minute drive.


The farm is situated in The Blackdown Hills, a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are walks from the farm. All the beaches above are linked by and give access to the South West Coastal Footpath and Honiton is an access point for the East Devon Footpath. Further afield are the stunning and unique National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor, both easily reached in under an hours drive.
