There are many leisure parks, horse riding stables and quad bike courses all within the county.

Book the BBQ box - incredible tasty meat Use a whole bag of logs for the hot tub Take a portable gas stove for the morning cuppa before the woodburing stove gets going Torch or lamp is essential for night time loo trips
Woodlands in Darrmouth was fantastic
We had to drag our children away from the site. They would have spent their whole time there.
Try the local beaches and country walks. Kids enjoyed the Woodland Wanderers activity that's available on site. Don't over heat your hot tub as they get really warm quicker than you think.
Killerton National Trust is ~5 miles away and excellent for children (it also has a park run on a Saturday morning - sadly didn't realise this until later in week but did enjoy running here) Tiverton Canal - a pleasant walk along the canals and place to stop for picnic and cream tea.
Yes take old clothes because the wood burner means you smell like a bonfire most of the time especially if you also have a wood fired hot tub. You have to light the wood burn stove to boil the water for a cup of tea so it takes a while and you really appreciate your cup of tea! We visited Tiverton canel one day which was good and took a rowing boat down the canal.
National trust properties nearby & woolacombe beach stunning
The only tip I have is, when finding the farm, don't go exactly by the sat nav. The farm is down very narrow lanes, about 700 yards before you reach your location, start looking at farm signs. The signs are not huge, so if you miss it, you will end up circling the farm - which is huge!
Lyme Regis (sandy beach) 45 minutes away Beer (pebble cove beach) 35-40 minutes away
We did Go Ape in Haldon Forest, which would be great for teenagers and young at heart adults!
The horse drawn barge was a real hit in Tiverton.
The local railway mueseam for kids was very good, a local winery had stunning views. Good access to other parts of Devon and would recommend the north cost with ilfracoombe and lynton.Roads are narrow and single lane only to the farm. Recommend getting sat nav coordinates for the farm entrance lane.
Exmouth for a beach day, about 40 mins drive. We went to Bickleigh and sat in the garden of The Fishermans Cot to watch the river and enjoy the view. The Lamb pub in Silverton was very welcoming with delicious food at very good prices. Other than that we just enjoyed the farm - the woods, our hot tub, visiting the farm animals.
on reflection we should have brought fresh fish back to tent and cooked it ourselves Beer is the place to go. . . . Jayne is very friendly and happy to share her knowledge of the area. . . .we also didn't have children with us and no rain so that made a difference to our vacation.
Take some jumpers and blankets with you!
We had so much fun on site we need to leave.
The cool box is very good so you can bring your own supplies and not have to do lots of shopping during your stay. That said definitely try the local produce supplied in the farm shop, very yummy!We did a day trip to diggerland with our two year old and enjoyed a day at the farm, walking in the woods, making pizzas, collecting eggs, splashing in the hot tub and enjoying the gorgeous views.
Tiverton castle. Local pubs.
The canal at Tiverton was beautiful, but nothing beat the view from our fabulous tent.
Escot was a very good day out for the kids.
Escot was a very good day out for the kids.
The beach at Saunton was excellent for young children. Escort was great, lots to see and do even on a rainy day.
- The kids loved roaming around in the woods most of all. They both went on the bushcraft course at the farm and absolutely loved it. - We had low key and gentle fun at Devon railway centre- Dunster near Minehead was a bit of a drive (1 hour) but very pr
A warning about the one track country roads to the farm would be good. An unconfident driver may have struggled. Also, Exmouth beach was more like a 40 minute journey.
We didn't need to leave the site as there was plenty to do on the farm.
Do go into the forest. _x000D_ The Devon Railway Centre is a cute, easy half day out for little ones.
Be ready for some hilly walks.
Just enjoy what there is on and around the farm and enjoy the slower pace of life with your family. Do the simple things that you don't normally have time for like letting the children cook, play games, read stories and chat in the hot tub!
Farm tour was great!_x000D_ Killerton House and Garden
Generally if you have young children you need some form of night light be it battery powered,
Tart Steps - hours drive away but well worth a day trip but check your route as depending on your type of car it may not be best for you to drive through the ford (we just made it!). Take a picnic and some towels for kids.
Going to Exeter was a great day, go for the under ground passage tour at the council office, and a great pub lunch at the river at the Mill on the Ex. Also, is about 40 minutes away but the Anchor Inn in Exbridge was great, especially if you like seafood! Both places are dog friendly. Had a good breakfast at The Bakehouse in Cullopton too.
We visited Shaldon on the south coast for a lovely day at the beach, and a great cafe tea with sea view. We also had fun at Knightshays national trust property near by.
diggerland was a big hit with the whole family and is less than 5miles from location. _x000D_ the canal is also local and worth a visit. _x000D_ if you have the money, sign the kids up for the survival day - I baulked at the price but seeing the fun they had I realised it was worth every penny.
Powderham Castle_x000D_ Beer (the place, not the liquid I drank too much of)_x000D_ Sidmouth
Beer village was beautiful and their Regatta was great fun. We caught mackerel from one one the motor boats you can hire there which were absolutely amazing. Putsborough Beach was a bit of a trek away but definitely worth it, great body boarding beach, safe for the kids, lovely little cafe and toilet block there too. Silverton Fayre was great fun and just relaxing in the hammock at the tent watching the clouds roll by, listening to the cows and the birds was perfect.
I can thoroughly recommend the forestry school - our boys have just enjoyed their second time building camp fires, etc. If you are looking to take dogs and children out then Escot is great with play areas, maze, falconry displays and red squirrels. Cafe with outside seating.
National Trust property is nice to visit!
Definitely take a walk along the Tiverton Canal up on Canal Hill - http://www.tivertoncanal.co.uk/_x000D_ Most definitely encourage the children to take part in the Forest School._x000D_ LISTEN carefully (and adhere) to advise about not getting too close to the pizza oven - to avoid hair singe!
Exmouth beach was great and not a long drive.
Visit the tiverton canal and if you have children book the short trips on Wed and Sat mornings._x000D_ If you go to Dartmouth, you must experience crabbing with the children, followed by fish and chips supper._x000D_ Paignton Zoo very very good._x000D_ Crealy park, book tickets before to get discount._x000D_ Bicton Park very beautiful gardens not so much for children,
