The East Devon Way
The East Devon Way links footpaths, bridleways and stretches of country lanes to create an inland route from Exmouth, through the East Devon Area of Outstanding Beauty around Barritshayes and on to Uplyme.
Linking into the East Devon Way are four circular or local walks. These provide one of the most delightful walking areas anywhere and many of the hills, woods, ravines, rivers and hill-forts are accessible only on foot.
As well as a wealth of unusual bird and mammal species to be seen, you will also come across architectural gems marking history from Bronze Age to present day. Colyton, Sidbury and Woodbury were originally built by the Saxons and some evidence of this still remains. Many fine houses and churches were built between 1300 and 1700, though some farms date from the 11th century. There is certainly evidence that there was a Barritshayes Farm on this site in the 1300’s.
World Heritage Jurassic Coastline
The ‘World Heritage’ Jurassic Coastline is only 4 miles away and the south-west coast path offers miles of walking in Devon along what must be one of the most magnificent and interesting coastlines in the country. There are towering cliffs behind pretty fishing harbours such as Beer and Axmouth, coves and wide beaches and spectacular views all around.
Our holiday cottages and accommodation have full central heating which enables us to open all year and we have a separate drying area for wet boots and coats. The swimming pool is open from May til the end of September for relaxation after a hard day’s walking and the games room and tennis court are available all year round. Well behaved dogs are welcome at a small extra charge.
