****** Come stay with us ******

A stunningly positioned 270 acre working farm in the Exmoor National Park with
outstanding southerly views over the Devon countryside.

The farmhouse has been refurbished with love and care retaining some
of the original features but including the comforts of the 21st century.

Our family farm is surrounded by some of the finest Exmoor countryside where walking,
riding, fishing, shooting and exploring can become a pleasure to enjoy.
This can be arranged prior to your visit if required.

The Doone Valley, Lynton and Lynmouth, the market towns of Barnstaple and South Molton,
the picturesque North Devon coastline and sandy beaches are close by.
There are many excellent local pubs nearby for a quiet drink or a meal.

The period farmhouse dates back to Roman times and the
word 'Ball' is the Roman for 'Round Hill'. The old race course ground used for chariot races
is still on the farm. We are on the old Roman road to North Molton Hill and were the first
settlement on the S.W. side of ExmoorNational Park.
