We’ve all enjoyed the wintry scenes across the UK and North Devon hasn’t missed out. The skies have been crystal clear and the views across Exmoor are breathtaking. What could be nicer than a brisk winter walk -then snuggling down in front of a real fire, making a Christmas wish list!
Open 10am – 5pm.
