** Basic food supplies**
You will find tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper & cooking oil in The Little Barn. In addition we are happy to shop for you so that at least you will have the essentials on arrival. Please let us know what you would like a couple of days beforehand. Products are sourced locally where possible and charged at cost price.
As we run a smallholding with animals to look after we are always around to give you help and advice about the local area, what to do and see etc
DOGS. We welcome well behaved and cat friendly dogs who won't chase the local wildlife including our hens, ducks and young lambs. Please keep dogs on a lead when near livestock. There is a charge of £2.50 per dog per day.
Please be aware that being surrounded by beautiful farmland does very occasionally mean that the sound of a tractor can be heard in the fields at night. There are also one or two days in the year when there is a definite whiff of ‘organics’ in the air! If this happens during your visit we can only apologise as we have no control over this, but hey…… welcome to the countryside!
SHOPS: Our community shop (2miles) is excellent for basic supplies but is closed PMs on Mon, Thurs, & Sat, and all day Sunday. The nearest supermarkets is a 20 minute drive.
Well behaved dogs welcome by prior arrangement. We can supply medium sized dog cage.
My husband Peter and I live in a farmhouse in beautiful Devon with our dog, cat, sheep, ducks and chickens. Since our four children have flown the nest we have travelled to many parts of the UK and Europe. We like to explore coast and hill paths particularly out of season away from the crowds.
Now it's our turn to become Airbnb hosts and to share this relatively unknown part of Devon with our guests. It really is a magical place untroubled by mass tourism. We are always on hand to give help and information but if you just want to do your own thing we'll leave you alone!
