Food and Drink in North Devon
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.

- Licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies
- Reception/party capacity for 200 people
- Indoor heated swimming pool
