Limeslake Farm is an unspoilt country valley homestead- 27 acres of farm, ancient woodland and river. Friendly farm animals and stunning wildlife. On the southern fringe of Exmoor, its completely away from roads and offers priceless tranquility, with a chorus of birds and farm animals.
The Byre offers spacious, beautiful, hidden accommodation, down a long private drive way down the deep lanes of Devon. There are breathtaking views across the valley and access to the joys of the Exmoor wilderness and the stunning North Devon coastline. Sleeps 4, with additional cot available.
Guests have their own tranquil grassed garden, patio and small, fenced pond. You have access to 27 acres of smallholding, including ancient woodland and a river meadow teaming with deer, badgers, foxes, a myriad of wild birds and pheasants.
Other things to note
Come and enjoy North Devon's beautiful coastline and sandy beaches, historic properties, gardens, mysterious moorland and picturesque villages. Or just stay on the farm and rest, cuddle the animals and throw balls for the dog.
Guests must respect countryside rules, close gates and observe needs of farm animals.
Well behaved pets are welcome by arrangement. Please keep your dog on a lead if you know or suspect that it might eat chickens. We have free range chickens here and we've had some bad experiences with a few visiting dogs.
Please clean up after your dog in the garden areas.
We request that dogs do not go on the beds or furniture and preferably not upstairs.
No smoking in the house.
We'd appreciate if you could let us know if anything gets broken so that we can fix or replace it.
If you leave any garments or treasured possessions behind, we are happy to post them on to you for a £10 postage and packing charge. Please appreciate that we have to do this quite often and need to cover our time, travel and postage costs.
Please make sure you leave the key at the end of your stay.
While linens and bath towels are provided, we suggest you bring beach towels. We do not permit towels or linens to be taken from the property.
On our smallholding we have children, horses, ponies, goats, chickens, cats and a dog. You are welcome to visit the animals if you wish. Or you can stay completely separate from us and enjoy the tranquility of your own space.
I live at the farm with my partner and 3 children. I have worked as an academic all my life and am now spending more and more time smallholding. I work part time now and mostly focus on getting the smallholding up and running and looking after the animals. Ged, my partner works in film or is here doing local stuff. The children make the most of every minute living here and we feel very lucky. We're from London originally but have lived in Devon 7 years or so.
Its great having The Byre. All the people who have passed through so far have been absolutely lovely, bringing us different views on the world and stories of all sorts that we wouldn't otherwise hear. Its nice for us to share this beautiful place.
