The natural environment enables us to connect with ourselves and each other.
Pickwell Barton covers 600 acres of farmland overlooking the beautiful coastal beaches of Putsborough and Woolacombe, steeped in history and located within one of the World’s oldest UNESCO Biosphere that stretches from the highlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor, down the river valleys to the sea and beyond Lundy Island. Pickwell Barton sits an area of outstanding natural beauty. With every outdoor activity at your fingertips it is the perfect location to explore, relax and simply enjoy life as it should be lived.
Jane and Andrew’s family have farmed in this stunning location for over 100 years, bringing a very personal touch to any visit. This has been recognised by the AA and Visit England when they were awarded the prestigious “Gold” award for service. Only awarded to the top 5% of businesses that truly go the extra mile for their guests.
A very special place, our working sheep and arable farm is run by the family, perched on the edge of Woolacombe, North Devon. We think it’s the most beautiful place in the world. Come and stay in our beautiful cottage, really absorb the uniqueness of this special place by booking a weekly holiday or short break, our cottage sits majestically above the beach in its own private courtyard and grounds.
From hiking along the dramatic coastal path, walk in our ancient meadows with a stream meandering through, take in the breath-taking panoramic coastal views, there’s plenty of places to explore. Reconnect with nature, discover community and fall in love with Pickwell Barton.
Your pERfect FARM STAY...
Summertime at Pickwell Barton Farm Holidays.
Pickwell Barton has burst into Summer. The hedgerows around the farm are full of Pink Campions, glorious Foxgloves, Cow Parsley and so many wonderful varieties of grasses. The lambs are growing, so is the grass out in the fields. Summertime on the farm is "Harvest Time". We harvest the crops to winter feed the animals. Haymaking, silaging and combining of the wheat, barley and oats will all take place during the Summer months. But, best of all, we can enjoy our favourite beaches - Putsborough being our local and best! I came as a little girl with my sisters and brother, then I married the local farmer! When the weather is not for making the hay or going to Putsborough, Woolacombe or Croyde beach (all within 5 minutes of the cottage) our "pop-up" games room is great for some family fun challenges.
