In the middle of nowhere, yet in the middle of everywhere!  That’s the beauty of Libbear Barton.  Straight out of the pages of The Wind in the Willows, this stunning 40-acre estate sits amongst North Devon’s picturesque hills, halfway between the loveliest beaches of North Devon and Cornwall and the wild beauty of Dartmoor with plenty of attractions in between.

However, without even needing to get back in your car, you will be surrounded by beautiful walks, a lake, a 5-acre wood and entertainment for all ages in the heated indoor pool, games room, playground, sauna and gym.  Perfect for all the family, a group of friends or a retreat.  But don’t just take our word for it, please check us out on Trip Advisor.
