Food in North Devon
Holidays, celebrations, weddings, parties and family get-togethers all have one thing in common. Food, glorious food. And it’s one of the things North Devon is particularly well known for.
Visit one of our nearby farm shops and pick up some local sausages for the BBQ or some Devon cheese. Or take a look at one of our local markets like Barnstaple’s historic Pannier Market. It’s one of the best food markets in the country. And if you’re looking for a great Devon wine, we recommend Quance Wines in Barnstaple. Their dry pink is lovely with seafood, salads and BBQs.
No visit in Devon is complete without a Devon cream tea. Tea by the Taw in Barnstaple is one of our favourites. But, of course, you can make them yourself in our huge kitchen at Ash Barton. Cut the scone in half, smother in cream then add the jam. Any other way is against the law.
All you need to know about Ash Barton:
- Licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies

Before even arriving at Ash Barton itself, the absolutely stunning views of the surrounding area hinted toward this being one of the gems of Devon. The grounds themselves, spacious and yet simultaneously homey, were an absolute delight. Wonderfully airy hallways, played off of nooks and crannies that made exploring the estate a joy.
