Get out in the countryside
For the actively minded, Mazzard Farm will be hosting a number of activities, and we offer stays built around existing local events. We are listing these chronologically, with hyperlinks provided to separate pages explaining more. Please do contact us if you require more information, or check our ‘Residential Courses‘ page for detailed information on the courses we offer.
If you’re looking for cycling that takes you through luscious and green countryside, whilst also being close to rugged coastlines and golden, sandy beaches then you’re going to really enjoy peddling your way through East Devon! Bikes are available for rent locally, and there are some great routes direct from Mazzard Farm, both on-road (quiet country lanes) and off-road.
There is simply too much to list here. In the immediate area of Mazzard Farm are walks for all abilities, and ranging from a casual 30 minute stroll to a full day of action. We provide countless maps and guide books. Please do contact us if you have any questions. The East Devon ANOB and South West Coast Path websites are both full of ideas for every walking level.
East Devon is a haven for any form of horse riding, whether in a school or enjoying the countryside on a hack. Did you know you can even bring your own horse to Mazzard Farm? Our 9 acre field has been turned into 9 lush individual paddocks and with luxury stabling (individual stable boxes are 12 x 12 in size) available on site too, this really is the place to bring your horse in Devon.
We’ve got a selection of great courses and are able to get discounted green fees for our guests on a number of these. So whether you want to just play one or two of these courses during your family holiday, or wish to book a special golf break at Mazzard Farm, contact us now, and we will happily provide you with as much information as you require. 4-day golf breaks start from £175 per person (based on 4 sharing, accommodation and green fees included).
We’re close to many of the great events that Devon hosts all year round. Taking part or supporting someone in the Great West Run? Perhaps taking on the Grizzly? We’re just 15 minutes from both of those great events! No matter what’s bringing you to this part of the world, we’re here to give you a great place to stay before you make your way to your final event destination.
Exeter Chiefs have been at the top of their game and the English Premiership for a number of years, so if you’re wanting to see a top flight team in action then we can thoroughly recommend the atmosphere at Sandy Park on match days! We’re just 20 minutes from the ground with great transport links. More of a football fan? We’ve got Exeter City too!
