Huxtable Farm Bed & Breakfast Accommodation
Escape to this beautiful, award winning en-suite 16th Century farmhouse bed and breakfast accommodation, situated near Barnstaple and Exmoor National Park.
Surrounded by open fields, woodland and panoramic views of rolling North Devon countryside, Huxtable Farm B&B nestles in the foothills of Exmoor. Relax and unwind with a holiday or a weekend bed and breakfast break in this comfortable, historic, 16th Century Medieval Devon Longhouse and carefully converted listed barn, with many original features, Tudor paneling, oak beams, log fires, uneven floors and low doorways! Tucked away in a secluded, peaceful position (away from public roads, yet only 2 miles from A361, linking North Devon to the M5) within its own 80 acres of Devon countryside.
This is an idyllic hideaway for exploring the beauty of Exmoor National Park, North Devons dramatic coastline with its historic harbours (Lynton/Lynmouth and Clovelly) and market towns (Barnstaple & South Molton). Discover National Trust Property - Arlington Court and visit the beautiful gardens of RHS Rosemoor, Marwood Hill or Castle Hill nearby. Surf, swim or paddle at the golden sandy beaches of Saunton Sands, Woolacombe, Putsborough & Westward Ho!, go horse riding on Exmoor or a bike ride on the Tarka Trail cycle path or visit family attractions; 'The Big Sheep', 'Exmoor Zoo' and 'Combe Martin Wildlife & Dinosaur Park'. With the Tarka Trail and Macmillan Way walking routes passing Huxtable Farm's entrance enjoy walks directly from the doorstep, a circular walk on Exmoor or along the South West Coast Path.
Abundant wildlife, panoramic views, breath taking sunsets & starry skies can be observed whilst you explore the 'Devon Wildlife' trail around the farm; A haven for bird watchers, photographers & artists.
All six rooms offer every comfort; with en-suite bathrooms (except one with a beautiful private bathroom), free WiFi, TV & DVD player, a wide selection of toilettries & tea making trays. Other amenities include a lounge with board games and small library, tennis court, sauna, games room, and a flock of Jacob sheep lambing during March/April.
Awake to a hearty breakfast, freshly cooked to order using farm and local produce, served with home-made bread, jams and free range egg, in the beamed medieval dining room with the warmth of the log fire.
