As we say….. ‘whatever the weather, our welcome is always warm!’



So, snow is on the way,

That is what they say,

But we are open, warm and cosy

To keep your cheeks feeling rosy.

Come to Devon and you will find,

A welcome of the warmest kind.


All the members of North Devon Farms wish all our guests, ‘old’ and ‘new’ a very Merry Christmas and we wish you every happiness in 2018!Merry Christmas

Thank you for your choosing to stay with us in Devon.

If you have never been before then we would love you to come and visit. Devon is  a beautiful county whatever the season or weather. Even when it’s chilly you will receive the warmest of welcomes on your stay.

Verity, by the artist Damien Hirst, still attracts visitors and still divides opinions, many love her, many are not so sure. Why not pay her a visit and make your own mind up! Ilfracombe harbour.

While you are there check out the Christmas markets, sample our local food and drink and walk our fabulous beaches…… the perfect stay!





Dulverton by Starlight is a magical event held every year, open to all. Every December the pretty Exmoor town of Dulverton is decorated with Christmas trees festooned with lights, and for one Sunday all of the shops are open for people to do some local Christmas shopping. Festivities take place all afternoon and into the evening. Dulverton has a wealth of independent shops, businesses, organisations, restaurants, takeaways, pubs, cafes and tea rooms all of whom help to make this a special place to visit not just for Starlight but all year round.

‘The ram’s are in with the ewes and will be with them for next 3 weeks so that 2018 lambing will take place over the 2018 Easter holidays @huxtablefarm
Do come a visit to enjoy natures delights, witnessing a lamb being born and see them gambling in the fields’


Still so much to see and do and still so many places to stay. The weather may be getting cooler but the welcome is always warm.
