Set in a spectacular location on the northern slopes of Exmoor National Park, a few hundred yards from the coast and with views of the Bristol Channel, Yenworthy Farm is situated in ‘Doone Country’, and actually appears in the novel itself. The gun which was supposedly used to repel the ‘Doones’ still hangs in the farmhouse to this day. The farm once had its own mill and the old water wheel can still be seen. Two traditional barns in the courtyard of the farm have been sympathetically converted to offer a very high standard of accommodation throughout.Yenworthy is ideal for walkers - a rugged pathway leads from the farm down to a secluded beach and there is direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path. There are 13 miles of footpaths to explore on the farm itself and it even has its own historic monument - an old Roman Fort at Old Burrow. A haven for wildlife, it has four Sites of Special Scientific Interest and rare species of butterflies and trees. The nearest sandy beach is Lee Abbey (5 miles) and there are excellent surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton within easy driving distance. For days out there are the Valley of the Rocks, the unique water-powered railway between Lynton and Lynmouth, and steam railways at Minehead and Woody Bay. There are many National Trust properties to visit, including Arlington Court, Watersmeet and Dunster Castle as well as Marwood Gardens, Williton Tropiquaria and Exmoor Zoo. The seaside and popular resort of Ilfracombe makes for a pleasant day out and offers boat trips to Lundy Island. Other activities locally include fishing, pony trekking, wildlife safari and tennis. There are three pubs with restaurants within 3 miles and plenty of shops in Lynton and Lynmouth (4 miles), Polock (7 miles), Minehead (13 miles) and Barnstaple (21 miles), which also has a popular covered market.
