Hello and welcome back to our lovely readers and a warm welcome to any newcomers. It is all go here in Devon with the opening of all accommodation including Bed and Breakfast and of course life on the farms is as busy as ever. We thought we would catch you up on updates from the farm. First, however did you get a chance to read our previous blog? It was a great guide on our favourite family-friendly beaches. Click here to give it a read.
Up first is Huxtable Farm Bed and Breakfast located in North Devon near to Barnstaple and South Molton. The stunning property has 3 rooms and sleeps between 1 and 9 people. As well as being busy running the bed and breakfast the owners Jackie and Antony have also been busy on the farm. Their Jacob ewes have just been shorn and they use the wool to make items and lots of fleeces for spinners and falters which can also be purchased. To see more about their products click here.
As well as the sheep their Penhen has hatched her eggs! If you would like more information on Huxtable Farm and what they can offer click here.
Our next farm that has been busy is Pickwell Barton, located in North Devon close to Braunton and Croyde. Pickwell Barton is a stunning self-catering property with 3 cottages to choose from sleeping between 2 and 6 people. Recently on the farm the sheep were happy to be rid of their warm fleeces! Shedding the ‘weight’ for their summer bodies, they are ready for their beach day now! A note from the owner Jane, ‘Sadly, it costs the farmer more t0 shear them than what the fleece is worth, if you can please everyone support British Wool products when buying your jumpers, carpets, duvets or even loft insulation.

Lower Campscott Farm
Our final farm update is from Lower Campscott Farm. Another farm and accommodation site located in North Devon near to Woolacombe and Ilfracombe. The beautiful site has 8 self-cottages sleeping between 2 and 40 people! As well as welcoming guests back to the site Kathy and Tony the owners have also been busy on the farm.
They have recently expanded their small animal area, making room for some more hens that were rescued by The British Hen Welfare Trust. They have settled in naively and are loving their newfound freedom on the farm. They are inundated with fresh eggs meaning there are plenty to go around for all of our guests to have for breakfast after their morning farmer’s round.
