Retreats

Country Ways nestles amid private pastures & ancient woodland with mature gardens, breathtaking views & tranquil spaces to unwind. Barnstaple, Exmoor & the wonderful sandy beaches of the North Devon coast are all within easy reach.

The panoramic vistas unfurl beyond the lawns & fields to outstanding views across the Devon valleys creating a wonderful location where you can relax & re-energise.

Farmclub

Children adore our non-working farm (grownups too) which offers the chance to interact with our amazing residents. As family pets they are all friendly, well behaved & enjoy making new friends.

Wallabies, alpacas, miniature ponies & donkeys, reindeer, pygmy goats, chickens & geese...need we say more? Everyone loves our breakfast table for fresh eggs!

Facilities

The Corn Barn doubles as a fantastic communal games room with a full size table-tennis table to enjoy a family challenge, but be warned it does become very addictive!

Totally wheelchair friendly there is football table, table skittles & a good selection of garden games, a full music system with cd player & iPod dock (so bring your favourite tunes!) & a very good selection of popular & classic dvd's, videos & even xBox games - Shhh! We didn't say a word!

The view from the games room is superb & sitting on the terrace outside watching the sun go down is a joy. Only available to our guests, the barn is never overcrowded & is a warm, welcoming & engaging space everyone can enjoy.

Grounds

We have acres of space for outdoor activities such as football, cricket & croquet, while the trampoline bounces up to 30st & provides great entertainment (& exercise!) for all ages.

A lovely chunky wooden climbing frame with monkey bars, swings, climbing wall & lookout tower is fantastic for vivid imaginations, while little ones can enjoy a beautiful miniature gypsy caravan, lots of sit in cars & ride on tractors!

There is seating & a BBQ for supervising adults to enjoy the surroundings & the majority of gardens are wheelchair accessible via purpose built decking paths & ramps! Open views & quiet corners leaving you to relax with wild bird song, rustling trees & babbling streams.
