Out and About
Given our location in the gorgeous Devon countryside, it’s no surprise that there’s a wide range of activities for you to experience. Available in the local area, you can enjoy horse riding, fishing and shooting. If you’re willing to venture a little further afield, Exeter cathedral is rightly popular or you could even take in a rugby match and offer your support to the Exeter Chiefs.
We firmly believe, however, that some of the best things in life are free and with such glorious countryside quite literally on our doorstep, we would definitely recommend pulling on your walking shoes and exploring on foot. The Exe Valley Way passes the house and we’re nine miles from the edge of rugged Dartmoor. For an alternative view, venture just 12 miles and you’ll find yourself on the famous south Devon coast.
Good food and drink should always play a part in any indulgent getaway and the local countryside boasts a number of traditional pubs and cosy inns. There are two particularly idyllic spots within striking distance and, of course, Exeter has restaurants to satisfy even the most demanding gourmand!
