Flear Farm

Rain or shine, the idyllic 45-acre Flear Estate has both grown-up and mini guests grinning from ear to ear day after day. Whether starting the day with fresh eggs from the honesty shop, a swimming lesson in the pool, or a fun-filled afternoon in the huge play barn, playing pitch and putt on the green or coming 'home' from sightseeing to grab an ice cream and enjoy it whilst wildlife spotting in the stream, lazing by the hot tub or before indulging with a relaxing massage in the treatment room, there's always something fabulous to do!

If you can tear yourselves away, there's an acclaimed, and child-friendly, gastro-pub a pleasant mile or so's walk away, not to mention some of Devon's finest beaches, crabbing spots and wildlife parks. Flear really does do family rejuvenation to a tee. It even makes self catering easy with a freezer full of delicious chef-made meals in the honesty shop and convenient organic local grocery deliveries from Riverford, for those who fancy cooking up a storm inthe well equipped cotatge kitchens or scenically set barbecue deck.

Owners Barney and Camilla are a young couple who have injected fresh energy and investment into Flear and, thanks to first-hand experiences with their own boys ‘Roo and Percy, they have real insight into what it takes to make a successful break with tots in tow, plus handy tips and advice on exploring the area with little ones.

Baby changing table beside the pool, black out blinds for easy napping, play barn full of lovely toys (and magazines!), even buckets and spades for the beach - lots of little things that make the world of difference!!
