We moved to Boreat Barton from Winchester in Hampshire 12 years ago with our daughter Georgina. We made the decision in 2014 to renovate the property and to let this lovely old farmhouse on a self catering basis to large family groups for part of the year. We love it here each season bring its own special beauty to the landscape and we would not want to live anywhere else. In Spring the fields surrounding Boreat are full of new born lambs, the summer air is filled with the scent of fresh hay and there is an abundance of wild flowers. In Autumn the landscape takes on a colourful hew to be followed by the crisps frost and a sprinkling of snow in Winter.
We are offering self catering family holidays for large groups, short-breaks weekend an mid-week breaks and room only accommodation (off peak only). We also offer celebration packages and in-house and fine dining with your own private chef.
Our Staff – Caraline and Karen our are part-time housekeepers. On occasions they will be at the property to greet you when you arrive and you will see them in the grounds from time to time. Please feel free to have a chat with them about Boreat Manor and the local area and amenities. They will be only too please to answer any questions you have.
Mike is our maintenance man and is on hand to carry out any minor repairs and you will also see him giving a helping hand in the garden.
Kelvin and Lorraine are our gardeners and you are sure to see him during your stay mowing the grass or tending the borders.
Mary looks after the horses and other animals as well as helping out with housekeeping duties.
Income from Boreat Manor is being invested in the property and the grounds and we are currently reinstating the woodland ponds and creating pathways and seating areas for our guests to enjoy the stunning scenery.
We are constantly striving to make improvements and any suggestion you might have would be very welcome.
Our daughter Georgina, her partner Tim and our three grown up nieces might be spotted from time to time walking the dogs or riding the horses in the grounds.
We want you to go home loving Boreat and North Devon as much as we do.
