Nature Breaks in North Devon
From time to time we all need a break from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. Getting ‘back to nature’ is one of the easiest ways to get re-energised, and the one of the easiest places to do it is in North Devon.
For a start, wander around the Ash Barton Estate. We have 25 acres of woodland, fields, gardens, wild flower meadows and lakes. And there are lots of animals to enjoy too. Our sheep and cows love visitors. And our hens are happy to provide eggs for breakfast. There are plenty of spectacular walks to enjoy nearby including the ever-popular Tarka Trail. Go birdwatching in Braunton Burrows, swim with seals near Lundy Island, or go fishing in Saunton Sands. Or visit the epic landscape of Exmoor National Park and search for red deer, butterflies and the lovely Exmoor ponies.
And when you’ve done all that, come back to Ash Barton, pour yourself a glass of wine, sit on our patio, close your eyes and listen to the birds twittering away. Bliss.
