Visit Hartland House and Gardens a gem in the Devon countryside.
It has fascinating interiors, beautiful 18thC Walled and Woodland Gardens, Bog Garden and Fernery by Gertrude Jekyll. Since 1914 dense undergrowth had hidden much of the garden but now entrances visitors once again with its winding paths, bulbs, camellias, rhododendrons, hydrangeas and stunning Walled Gardens of tender and rare plants inc echium pininana. 
Walk to the Atlantic cove at Blackpool Mill, the location for 'Sense and Sensibility' and 'The Shell Seekers'; enjoy the snowdrops, primroses, ferns, daffodils, bluebells and foxgloves in early spring. Peacocks and guinea fowl roam at will; donkeys and Welsh Mountain sheep graze the Park.
