The amazing beaches of North Devon are under an hour away – take a relaxing walk and explore the dunes or be adventurous and have a surf lesson or go coasteering. The City of Exeter is less than an hour to the south and is steeped in history; visit the Cathedral and Underground Passages before stopping for a leisurely pub lunch. Then work it off by hiring a kayak or going for a bike ride along the quay!
Closer to home an array of activities awaits – you can play golf, try your hand at trout fishing, have a clay pigeon shooting lesson or ride horses, quad bikes, go-carts or even Segways ... the list goes on and on and on! Alternatively, stay put, relax and unwind in your cottage, and enjoy all that Newhouse Farm Cottages offer.
