There’s so much to do – or not, as the case may be….
Just outside our door
With all the natural beauty surrounding Northcote Manor, many guests set the scene for relaxation and gentle leisure, making the most of our lawns, gardens, and views over the Taw River Valley. Take a gentle ramble through ancient fruit orchards; following paths that lead to open lawns with magnificent views. On sunny days, sip a glass of bubbles on the terrace or on chillier days, curl up in front of roaring fires with a good book and a delicious cream tea.
On our doorstep
We may be tucked away in the Devon hills, but Northcote Manor is conveniently close to lots of activities and pastimes. These include:
The wild beauty of Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks
Just 30 minutes’ drive to stunning coastal walks, revealing rugged and dramatic North Devon coastline. These little meanders will take you past quiet, sandy and pebbled beaches, which can be enjoyed from both an aesthetic and geological view point.
The green patchwork of countryside; with high hedgerows, streams and rivers which flow through quaint villages and towns like Great Torrington just 15 minutes away, most brimming with cafés, shops and places of interest.
The Royal Horticultural Society Gardens (the closest being Rosemoor) and National Trust properties such as Arlington Court, just outside Barnstaple and only 25 minutes by car.
