Pickwell Barton has been in the Cook family for 100 years, this August 2021! The farm lies on the North Devon coast with some of the most beautiful scenery you will ever see. The land overlooks the glorious sandy beaches of Putsborough and Woolacombe Sands, North Devon’s awarding winning blue flag beaches with toilets and shops.

The cattle and the sheep are all traditionally reared outdoors free to roam in the fields of grass. Whenever you visit there is always something going on as each season brings its own attraction. In March our flock of 500 ewes have their lambs, you can enjoy walking through the meadows to the South West Coast Path (that runs through our farm) watching the lambs skip and play in the spring sunshine. During the summer sunshine we will be out in the fields bringing in the harvest. Haymaking and the corn harvest, we grow 300 acres of cereals wheat, barley and oats and swedes. November and December, not only is for making the Christmas cakes and puddings, the cattle and sheep come into the barns out of the winter storms and preparations begin for the lambing season.
Come and enjoy our Putsborough Cottages, the acres of freedom, the panoramic views and the abundance of wildlife with your friends and families on our farm on the North Devon Coast. Close to the picturesque villages of Georgeham and Croyde.
