Interaction with guests
We enjoy having guests in our cottage and as it is a working farm, we are usually on hand to greet our guests and then most days are available to answer any questions, make suggestions or even, when there is time show you our arboretum and Giant Redwood Plantation. You are free to walk about on the farm and surrounding fields and orchards and say 'hello ' to our friendly sheep.

About the neighbourhood
Tiverton is a historic market town occupied by the Romans who used it as a base for their activities in the West country.

The local museum provides an interesting insight into this aspect of the town's history. Visit the castle with its famous tapestry hangings and the pannier market held Fridays and Saturdays. There is a newly built leisure centre and a cinema.

The river Exe passes through the town as does the Grand Western canal and horse drawn barge trips take you through the most picturesque countryside. Knightshayes and Killerton House, two National Trust houses with beautiful garden are close by and well worth a visit.
