Situated in the heart of the Devon countryside. The Heal Farm story started in the 1970s, when Anne Petch received a piglet for her 16th birthday. Now, more than 30 years on, Heal Farm is a thriving family business at the forefront of the movement to use traditional farming methods in the rearing of rare breeds. The farm's activities have now diversified to include rare breeds of lamb and beef as well as stocking non-meat products including locally reared smoked fish and wonderful traditional cheeses.
Fantastic food, I always look forward to my visits. I would recommend the sirloin steaks to anyone some of the finest i have tasted.
Well worth a visit - you will not be disappointed!
Unusual cuts of beef
The butchers here really know thier stuff and you can get traditional cuts of beef that you won't find elsewhere - perfect for old-school Mrs Beeton recipes or for recreating classic dishes like granny used to make!

A traditonal thatched village pub with a good reputation for quality locally sourced food. A very good wine selection and local ales on tap. The pub suffered a fire in 2007 but has been sympathetically restored back to its former glory.
Set deep in the north Devon countryside, The Rosemoor estate was once the home of Lady Anne Palmer. Lady Anne developed a passion for plants when she met noted plantsman Colllingwood Ingram while recuperating from measles in Spain. Over the next 30 years, she travelled the world to collect specimens for her garden, which she gave to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1988. The estate now comprises 65 acres of land, which includes rose gardens, a winter garden, a fruit and vegetable garden, a formal garden, woodlands, and many stream and lakeside plantings, making Rosemoor an enchanting place to visit whatever the season.
Beautiful, well-managed gardens, well worth a visit whatever the season.
The garden is absolutely gorgeous and very well looked after. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the restaurant had great locally sourced food. A great day out for adults and children.
The rose collection - one of the largest in the West Country - is very impressive. In full bloom in the summer, the scent of over 2,000 flowers is quite sensational. The Rose Weekend, held in June, was very informative, with advice on growing your own, as well as walks and activities for children.
The Sunday lunch here is something to behold - meats from Devon’s best farms are the star of the show.

On my recent visit to Barnstaple, we decided to stop here for a bit of lunch. Being set just off the High Street - it is ideally located for those in need of a quick pick-me-up. The service we received was second to none, the staff were very warm and welcoming. The lunches were delicious, generously sized and very reasonably priced. I would definitely visit again if I was I the area.
