Bed and Breakfast in Devon

A bed and breakfast in Devon makes the perfect base for exploring this wonderful county. We have an eco friendly B&B in the heart of Devon's countryside and a family friendly B&B in the East Devon countryside, close to the Jurassic Coast...

Eco friendly B&B in the heart of Devon's countryside

Midway between Exmoor and Dartmoor and surrounded by rolling fields, ancient woods and quiet country lanes, four star Ashridge Farm is an organic working farm in Mid Devon's beautiful countryside. The four star B&B is in a wonderful barn conversion that is really eco-friendly, using sheep's wool for insulation, natural water based paint, wood treated with natural oils and resins and all heating is provided by an environmental award winning wood pellet burning system.

Breakfast is delicious, whether you choose a full English, scrambled or poached egg from the Ashridge hens, fresh fruit and organic yogurts, Jill's homemade bread with her jam and marmalade. It will certainly set you up for the day! You can help Jill feed the chickens and collect the eggs for breakfast, walk around the stock with Richard and feed the lambs, or explore the waymarked trails through the farm's fields and woods.

Ashridge Farm is farmed with the environment in mind, and has won awards including Gold award Devon Wildlife Trust Approval Scheme and the Otter Trophy for Conservation; as a result there is an abundance of wildlife to discover on your bed and breakfast holiday. Get back to nature and enjoy total peace and tranquility.

Family friendly B&B in East Devon, close to the Jurassic Coast

Four star Barristhayes Farm is a great B&B for families - instead of just a family room, you get your own wing of the farmhouse with private entrance and breakfast room. Upstairs is a double bedroom (can be split into two singles) with a seating area, a twin bedroom and a bathroom. Enjoy a hearty full English breakfast served with a selection of cereals, juices, fresh fruit and toast, where possible using local produce.

Fantastic facilities will keep everyone happy - heated outdoor swimming pool, 8 acres of grounds and paddocks to explore, tennis court and games room. Although not a working farm, there are friendly sheep and horses to meet and feed, and you can also find out about their newly planted vineyards and re-established orchard.

Close to the pretty village of Colyton and ancient market town of Honiton, Bicton Park Botanical Gardens, Donkey Sanctuary and Escot, a great day out for lovers of nature and the great outdoors. Walks criss cross the hill and valleys surrounding the bed and breakfast, and just 100m from the East Devon Way which meaders through the Coly Valley all the way to Exmouth. The stunning Jurassic Coast and South West Coast Path and both nearby.
