The perfect place for a retreat. North Devon Countryside among green fields and river, with indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and fresh spring water.

Our tranquil location has its own clean natural water source and meandering footpaths down to the pond or river.

The 30 acres of grounds surrounding is not actively farmed and so, being free from pesticides, we have an abundance of wildlife. Regularly spotted roaming the fields are red deer, hares and badgers. Birds including buzzards, woodpeckers, barn owls, nuthatches and bullfinches can be seen either soaring high in the sky or eating from one of the many feeders dotted around.
