Lower Knapp Farm

Devon, England
Lower Knapp Farm Things To Do

Sidmouth, a pretty Victorian coastal town overlooking Lyme Bay, has retained much of its old world charm. It's resisted the usual 'seaside' distractions and amusements, with an attractive pedestrianised market square for visitors to enjoy shopping in relative peace.

Nearby Bicton Park Botanical Gardens are only eight miles from Lower Knapp. Set over 60 acres, these beautiful gardens have plenty for children too, from a nature trail to a climbing camp.

Honiton, a town of lace and pottery

Honiton, a town of lace and pottery

The bustling market town of Honiton is around five miles to the north of Lower Knapp. Its main street, courtyards and alleyways are lined with interesting buildings, as well as a variety of small shops, street markets and a regular farmers' market.

For centuries, the town was renowned for its lace, pottery and glove making. Although these crafts are no longer commonplace, Honiton has many specialist shops dedicated to all of them.

It has also gained a reputation as a centre for antiques and, in particular, antiquarian books. The Allhallows Museum, found in the town's oldest building, contains many items of local interest and is also worth a visit.

Culture, adventure and history

Culture, adventure and history

Heading west, it's easy to spend a day in Exeter, which is only 30 minutes away. Take a guided tour of the city's magnificent 11th-century cathedral, or visit the Exeter Phoenix, which has an excellent programme of dance, theatre, visual art and more. There are, of course, plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants.

Alternatively, head south of Exeter to River Dart Adventures, for active outdoor fun ranging from family camping to extreme sports, or to the 14th-century Powderham Castle. Located beside the Exe estuary, it's one of England's oldest family homes. There are regular tours and it's set in the middle of a deer park. Enjoy a Deer Park Safari, an adventure play castle, bird of prey displays and a fantastic calendar of events.

Animal entertainment for all the family

Nearby Becky Falls Woodland Park was voted 'Devon's Top Beauty Spot'. With its mix of animals and adventure, there's something for the whole family. Covering 60 acres, it has a full entertainment programme during school holidays and on Bank Holiday weekends.

Heading north of Lower Knapp and skirting south of Exmoor National Park, Big Sheep has similar appeal. Shows include sheep racing (with jockeys), duck trials and shepherds with a sense of humour who introduce breeds of sheep while they dance to music.
