Fern Tor Vegetarian and Vegan Guest House

About Us

Photo of house 28k

At Fern Tor you can have a holiday or break just relaxing with us in our 12 acres of grounds or you can explore the beaches, moors and other attractions of the North Devon Coast, Exmoor and Mid Devon.


Our 5 acres of culm grassland which follows the Little Silver River has been awarded a Countryside Stewardship grant, and is rich with wildflowers. 

The flowers and the butterflies change throughout the spring and summer, but are particularly beautiful in spring.  Below are some bluebells and wild garlic, and some of the orchids under our apple trees.

We have a species list drawn up by English Nature and the Devon Wildlife Trust, if anyone wants to go exploring.  The remaining land we use for our many rescued animals and growing some organic fruit and vegetables.

Guests are asked not to smoke in the house. Children and pets are welcomed, but read our animals page first.

We have information, guides and maps of the surrounding area, and have compiled a number of suggested walks and drives in the area . An extensive library of novels and reference books is also available.

We endeavour to be as “eco-friendly” as possible, which to us particularly means avoiding all animal products.  Thus there is no down or feathers in our pillows and duvets.  All our cleaning products and the guest soap are animal free and not tested on animals.  Solar panels on our roof help heat the hot water and generate electricity as well.

 
 We make extensive use of low energy light bulbs and we use recycled loo rolls.   We recycle your beer and wine bottles, and your newspapers are used to line our bunny houses.  Chester is also happy to recycle any leftover asparagus pancakes or leek and mushroom croustade!

Jane having a rare rest!
