We have been using the winter to completely renovate the hallway and one of our bedrooms, in our farmhouse,so we will now have three rooms we can offer. It was a very messy affair, with plaster and dust flying, but now order has been reinstated, new plaster up, paint on ,radiator and pictures rehung. Already for the new season. The lawn has had its first cut, the snowdrops and daffodils are out and winter though not over, seems to be struggling to compete with Spring.
If you are looking to get away for a few days at Easter or the May half term and want to stay in the UK, then why not pack your bags and come to Devon! We are just off the A30, so very easy to reach.
Perfect for children and babies, with lots of room to play and a resident five year old to play with. Lambs to feed, piglets and ponies in near by paddocks and with the Miniature Pony Centre, The Waie Inn and the Eden Project not to far away, if the weather is not behaving,then there is plenty to do without getting wet.
If the sun is out, then the beaches of Bude,Widemouth and Crooklets on the North Coast and Dawlish and Exmouth on the South Coast, provide the perfect day out.
If you like walking there are some fantastic walks nearby, awash with Bluebells in May such as' The Deerpark', near Sandy Park or follow the River Teign from Sandy Park to Fingle Bridge, with Castle Drogo towering above you, on the side of the valley.
