Our beautiful miniature shetland foals, Marley our own home-bred foal in the middle, Khaleesi the tiny dainy blue dun on the left and Summer the very pale palomino on the right!



They were so much fun throughout the summer, there's nothing piglets love more than to try and find a way to escape! There were so many guests who would have liked to watch their antics all day!

DON'T FORGET: We also have 3 reindeer who are now quite tame and you can groom and hand feed them.... they LOVE carrots!

See The Farm page for more information on our animals...

Country Ways is lucky to be in a region with so much to do with Exmoor to the north and Dartmoor to the south. . The beaches are also all very different with the lovely rocky coves and cliffs to the north and the long sandy surfing beaches to the west of us. There are also interesting wildlife beaches and beaches that are dog friendly all year round.

There is plenty of activities to suit everyone. Click on our North Devon Information Page for full details of Riding - Golf - Walking - Surfing - Cycling - Other Activities

However it may be that a wander around the harbour at Lynmouth or along the cobbled streets of Appledore is more your style. Srolling down the narrow streets of Clovelly is also very popular with our guests, although walking back up the steep hill is not always treated with such enthusiasm.

Children always love the sea and surfing lessons are available at Croyde. If the weathers bad you can use Cascades, the indoor adventure pool at Croyde, or go to one of the many visitor attractions such as the Milky Way Adventure Park or the Big Sheep near Bideford. For adult visitors to north devon there are also top quality places to visit - Rosemoor Gardens, Arlington Court, Tapeley Park to name but a few. Family Attractions    All weather places of Interest
