Discover Lower Halsdon Farm
This working farm is owned by the National Trust and tenanted out. It often hosts events, including family muck in days and countryside ranger days.
The farm is donated
In 1996 Lower Halsdon Farm and the surrounding land was generously bequeathed to The National Trust by farmer Stanley Long.
Meandering along the northern boundary of the farm for approximately 1km, the tarmacked path is a popular route for walkers, cyclists, people with pushchairs and wheelchair users. The path links up to the Exe Estuary Trail.
Offering a green space for all to enjoy, visitors can look out for wildlife that make their home along the Exe Estuary and admire impressive views across the water.
Lower Halsdon Farm tea-garden
At certain times of year, the tea-garden at Lower Halsdon Farm will be open and offering a selection of refreshments.
A visit to the tea-garden is an ideal way to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Exe Estuary with a drink and snack. Sample their homemade cakes and cream teas, with freshly brewed drinks or a refreshing soft drink.
