Newhouse Farm Cottages' location in mid-Devon makes it the perfect base from which to explore the whole of the county. With Exmoor National Park to the north and Dartmoor National Park to the south, day trips to enjoy the spectacular scenery, wildlife, tors and falls that these Parks have to offer is a must. 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.
