What's on if I come in May?
There is so much going on on the farm in every season of the year so you might not want to stray very far, but just in case, we have searched the local area for things which might interest you and help to make your stay even more special.
The Devon Wildlife Trust are running a really interesting series of walks in North Devon to help you learn something of the unique habitat of our glorious part of the county.
Highlights of the programme include a spring flowers walk on 8th May, a wildlife walk at West Mill on 17th May and a Tarka Trail wildlife walk on 29th May. Some of these walks require advanced booking so we recommend you visit the Trust's website if you would like to go along.
Now that Easter is behind us the programme of activities on Lundy Island speeds up. There are a series of warden led activities including walks, talks, rockpool rambles and snorkelling safaris. Check out the website (www.lundyisland.co.uk) for more details. Lundy is also popular for painting, photography and bell ringing!
With the first weekend in May being a Bank Holiday, there is lots going on. The Clovelly Folk Festival is on 5th and 6th and is a great weekend of musical fun, folk bands, buskers and Morris Dancers. Torrington has a May Fair and Carnival and Ilfracombe a Beer Festival. Something for all tastes I think you would agree! The website "www.staynorthdevon.co.uk" has lots more details of all of these events.
Later in the month, the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway have a Spring Vintage Weekend for train enthusiasts young and old(May 12th and 13th), and Barnstaple is staging its own Grand Prix through the streets of the town on the 13th.
On the last weekend, Clovelly is holding a "Celebration of Local Ales and Cider" where you will have a chance to raise a glass to unique local brews created with passion by small North Devon breweries.
Never a dull moment in North Devon!
