Our commitment to Devon is strong, with roots deep in the countryside. It’s what drives us to make sure that everything is done properly – the way that it has been done for generations.

Using traditional farming practices and land rotations enable our fields to remain fertile and full of life.

As well as fruit and veg, we grow a mixture of hay, corn, maize and silage; all of which we are able to feed to our beautiful herd of Ruby Reds within the winter months.

The Tarka Trail is named after  Henry  Williamson’s famous novel “Tarka the Otter”. The story was based around many of the locations along the Trail, which follows the route of a disused railway line between Braunton and  Meeth. With up to 21 miles of safe, level and traffic-free riding on offer, a bike is the perfect way of exploring the area.

Our cycle hire centre is conveniently located beside Barnstaple Railway Station, with large, inexpensive parking and is the perfect start point for exploring North Devon by bike. We take great pride in looking after our hire fleet, and with an extensive range of over 130 cycles available, we have a bike to suit everyone.

On our routes you will experience some of the best of the Tarka Trail and have the chance to explore the beautiful estuary of the rivers Taw and Torridge. En route to either Bideford or Braunton for refreshment, you can take in the countryside Devon is so famed for and enjoy a truly great day out!



We are open for bike hire!

We are open from 9.15am to 5pm everyday.

Please allow extra time for collecting your bikes as we must adhere to social distancing guidelines.

We believe in good food for everybody – it is as simple as that!

Our fantastic suppliers and growers provide us with a full range of fruit, vegetables, cheese, milk, yoghurts, meats, fish, hand-made bread and pastries. As much as possible this is grown or made locally; some of which you won’t find for sale anywhere else. Of course, to provide a good array year-round, we rely on sourcing more widely too.

We also stock store-cupboard ingredients – herbs and spices, flours, pulses, oils and all sorts of interesting tasty treats.

Our aim is to minimise transportation, packaging and the use of chemical pest- and herbicides involved in the produce we offer. Some of our staples are organic as standard!

We love plants! We have a seasonal stock of shrubs, trees, herbaceous perennials, herbs and annual plants.

It changes frequently so please stop in to see what is looking good. We can source for your specific requirements and have a wealth of gardening and growing knowledge.

We use only Devon nurseries.

We also stock loose compost, kindling, firewood and a range of locally made crafts.
