Get outdoors at A la Ronde

A family sit on a log, a mother and father, a boy and two girls.

A la Ronde enjoys a wonderful outlook across the Exe estuary to the east Devon coastline. Strategically placed seats in the grounds enable visitors to relax and take in the scenery on a beautiful day. For the more energetic it's fun to walk around the meadow and view the house from a lower angle.

A compendium of garden games

Family fun with one of our free garden games. Grab a mallet and play some croquet (deposit required) or have a go at the giant game of snakes and ladders. Steady your hand for a game of Jenga or have a go at ludo.

A wander through the meadow

Enjoy a walk around the meadow, a fantastic way to see this unusual house from all angles.  There is also a brass rubbing trail around the outside of the meadow for all to enjoy.
The meadow is teeming with the sights and sounds of nature. Take a look at our two nature spotters sheets and see what plants, butterflies and insects you can find.

An orchard picnic

Have a stroll around our beautiful orchard .  There are also picnic tables where you can enjoy the fresh air as you eat your lunch.

Paws for thought

We are very dog friendly here at A la Ronde, as long as they are on their leads.  We offer them a cool drink by the Laundry and also outside the shop.  In our shop with have tasty treats for your hungry hounds to enjoy.  Your dogs are also welcome in the first part of the cafe and also by the outside seating; they can also enjoy the meadow walk.

The water tower and laundry
