Out & About
Home to an abundance of wildlife and breathtaking scenery, it is the only area in England (the other being Scotland) where herds of shy, red deer live in the wild. Equally cherished, native Exmoor ponies will often be seen alongside footpaths and bridleways throughout the National Park, which is carefully protected to preserve their habitat.
The rocky cliffs and bays of North Devon contrast with seaside resorts and wide sandy beaches at Woolacombe, Putsborough, Saunton Sands and Croyde Bay. There are also several National Trust properties, gardens & castles, historic villages and thatched cottages where a real clotted cream tea makes the perfect end to your day’s exploring.
Oxenleaze Farm caravan park is only 10 minutes drive (6mls), outside of the historic little town of Wiveliscombe, which has that romantic charm of a quiet traditional English village. Local shopping facilities include – a small supermarket (open late, most days), Post Office, butchers, chemist, newsagents and several pubs etc.
