Meadows Drift is a wonderful place to stay for large group holidays in Devon. Tucked away in the winding country lanes a very short drive from Honiton, this gorgeous holiday house is perfect for multi-generational family holidays, days away with friends and their children and for low key celebrations with your loved ones. 7 bedrooms sleep 16 guests, there’s a games room, movie room/living room, a large garden with a hot tub and play area, and access to 15 acres of private grounds with spectacular views over the Otter Valley. Wholesome fresh air, birdsong and tranquillity is all yours when you stay at Meadows Drift.
You might be perfectly happy not to go far at all, just ambling down across the fields to the little River Luv, or up to Dumpdon Hill, where there are swathes of bluebells in the springtime. You might even venture over to Hembury Fort to explore the tracks and trails through the woods.
Pootle into Honiton to browse the shops and stalls on market day; see the latest exhibition or join in a workshop at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery, stop by for something to eat at The Yellow Deli or JKs’ Bistro. Just a few miles away you can tuck into the tastiest ice creams at Otter Valley Ice Cream & Field Kitchen or got to Heron Farm to find the bug hotels in the fairy garden. Go up to Dunkeswell Airfield, discover its history in the Heritage Centre, then find a table in the Aviator Coffee Bar & Restaurant and watch the planes coming in to land.
In half an hour you can be on the Jurassic Coast where you could go to a different beach every day! Sidmouth has two beaches backed by soaring red sandstone cliffs, Exmouth has a long stretch of sand and is popular for watersports. At Beer you can visit Beer Quarry Caves and Pecorama, then go down to the shore for crab sandwiches at Ducky’s Beach Café. Branscombe is a pretty coastal village where centuries old cottages line the hill that leads down to the beach, and at Lyme Regis you can go mackerel fishing, get close to sea creatures in the Marine Aquarium and delve deep into history at Dinosaurland Fossil Museum.
For more family days out take a look at our Things To Do and you’ll find heaps of inspiration; say hello to all the happy donkeys at the Donkey Sanctuary, see wild boar and ride the zip wire at Wildwood Devon, and if you’re not bothered by heights, go down to Haldon Forest Park for fun on the high ropes course at Go Ape Exeter. Maybe spend the day exploring the city in Exeter, soak up the tranquillity of the beautiful cathedral, take a tour of the medieval Underground Passages, go meet Gerald the Giraffe at the RAM Museum.
Wherever you go, whatever you do, good times will be had, happy memories will be made. Book your stay at Meadows Drift today!
