OverviewAshclyst Farm Hostel is a charming National Trust farm house on an organic arable farm at the edge of Ashclyst Forest. Your hosts Martyn & Lorraine are tenant farmers for the Killerton Estate. Their spacious farmhouse has five private rooms with two twins, two doubles, and a triple room. The beds are fully made up with duvets and the bedrooms are spacious and quiet. Guests have full use of the farmhouse kitchen, dining rooms and lounge. There is a walled courtyard which leads to the old wash-house and servants quarters which now provide secure cycle storage and space for drying wet gear. Larger groups are welcome to camp in the Orchard, just off the courtyard and share the farmhouse facilities with the rest of their group. Dogs are welcome in the Orchard with campers, by arrangement. The rural location and quite roads are ideal for families, walkers and cyclists, wanting to enjoy the Devon Countryside. Ashclyst Forest is on the doorstep and is perfect for wildlife, walks and picnics. Days at the seaside are effortless with Exmouth (15 miles) and Sidmouth (13 miles) a short drive away. It is an easy journey to both Dartmoor & Exmoor National Parks, and Exeter City is just 8 miles away. The Two Counties Way Long Distance Path is within 2 miles and the the Topsham to Exmouth off road cycle route, part of National Cycle Route 2, is 8 miles away.
