We had a wonderful time at Widmouth Farm, 2 adults and a baby stayed in Kestrel Cottage which was lovely and cosy with room for more. We saw Jeremy every day tending to his lambs and goats right outside our window, he was very friendly and told us lots about all the animals which he is clearly very passionate about. Our 10 month old baby LOVED walking round the farm stroking the sheep and farm cat, feeding the alpacas and watching the pigs.
Nearby places we would recommend are Indicknowle Farm for their home made ciders, Exmoor Zoo which is brilliant for little ones with something around every corner, Woolacombe for it's lovely beach and surfer style and The Hunters Inn in Heddon Valley which is a gorgeous pub in a beautiful setting with lovely food and people.
