Private Retreat in North Devon
In the olden days, wealthy business men and their families, plus their extended households, would leave smoky old London during the summer months and retreat to their private country piles to take in the fresh air and enjoy the stunning vistas.
We think this is a marvellous idea. We appreciate that you may not be able spend the entire summer at Ash Barton. But a weekend or midweek break is highly recommended if you want to recharge your batteries and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
And if you want to leave the cook, the manservant or the lady-in-waiting at home, there are plenty of restaurants just a short drive away. And the local Tesco will also deliver food right to the door. That’s progress.
After searching for 18 months we have found the perfect venue. Able to enjoy all aspects of the house and grounds as a mixture of sunshine and rain. A big thank you to Pete who looked after us and worked 24-7 to make the weekend a success.Tricia and David’s 40th weekend
