Things to do on holiday at Hallwood Farm

Here on the doorstep or not much further

  • HELP TO FEED THE CALVES – Sometimes we have baby calves here that need their warm milk twice a day, so helpers always welcome!



  • ENJOY THE FARM – Hallwood must certainly be one of the prettiest farms around, hilly fields, nice big flat open fields, woods, streams, ponds and wild flowers abound. We are always around and more than happy to answer any questions.
  • WONDERFUL WALKS – Lots of lovely walks to do right here from the farm.  The traffic free Tarka Trail is just a mile away http://www.northdevonbiosphere.org.uk/the-tarka-trail.html.
    Heaps of maps and printed walks here at the cottage.

  • hallwood-farmhouse-tractorENJOYING THE GARDEN – lovely big enclosed south facing garden with stunning views to enjoy while you relax with a glass of wine on the decking.
