The farm is a 5 minute walk from the lodge so you can keep yourselves to yourselves or walk to the farm and see the day to day running.
Here at Knightstone we encourage you to walk through our fields (over 100 acres) and enjoy all the wildlife there is to see from rabbits, hares, pheasants, deer, foxes, buzzards, kestrels, Owls to Beavers that were found on our stretch of the river in 2013. There are traditional Devon hedgerows, streams and rivers, woodland, and a Pixies Cave for you to explore. You will be transformed to another world – bird song, fresh air, starry skies, amazing views, peace and tranquillity.
From your site you can take a walk alongside the River Otter to the village of Tipton St John and stop at the Pub/Restaurant the Golden Lion for a bite to eat or try a refreshing local ale.
Or you could walk in the opposite direction towards the town of Ottery St Mary (via ‘Pixies Cave’) where there are all the services you could possibly need.
Knightstone is based just outside of Ottery St Mary who took its name from the River Otter who runs through the bottom part of Ottery, past Knightstones land and onto the sea at the picturesque town of Budleigh Salterton and a 20 minute drive from the city of Exeter. There is plenty to keep you entertained around the area if you fancy spending your time touring and site seeing or even turning your hand to new skills…
