There’s plenty of choice close by. Lovely country pubs, restaurants with sea views, sublime fish and chips and some great takeaway options too. There’s even a local chef/restauranteur who delivers delicious ready-to-heat meals direct to your door.
There will be a Devon farmhouse cream tea waiting for you when you arrive at Kerswell Farm. If you would also like a cake or some home-made cookies to make your time with us extra special, let me know in advance and I will get baking. A few ideas…
- Farmhouse fruit cake
- Lemon drizzle
- Buttery oat cookies (fruit and nuts optional)
G E Honey and Son is the fabulous butcher in Parkham selling home-grown and locally-produced meat. The wonderful ‘Dan the Fishman’ sells fresh fish in Appledore and Bideford on Wednesdays and Fridays respectively. Small convenience shops with Post Offices are not far away in Bucks Cross and Woolsery, and there are many supermarkets in Bideford. Most supermarkets will deliver to Kerswell Farm. There’s also an organic shop selling fresh produce and all manner of supplies on the way into Appledore.
It’s always difficult to recommend places to eat, as they change often, and tastes vary – these are just a few of those that we have tried and enjoyed or have been highly recommended to us by people we trust!
