I’m always amazed at how nature bounces back from all that is thrown at it, like the freezing, snowy conditions we experiened during December & January; Snowdrops are always the first signs that Spring is on it’s way, bringing a little joy to those who see them.

Thoughts of summer and holidays away, help us get through the darker, winter days and with the worry of rising costs, we have been thinking of ideas to share with you of things you can do for free, whilst staying at Huxtable Farm, situated within North Devon’s Area of Outstanding Beauty and close to Exmoors Dark Skies Reserve.
