Residential Pottery Courses Accommodation
Home Farm in the village of Welcombe is a 200 year old stone build Georgian farmhouse that oozes character and no wonder with its interesting mix of former residents.
Dora Carrington and her companions stayed over many years at Home Farm and the subject of her famous portrait "Mrs Box" was the farmers wife of the same name. When the Box family retired it was bought by the colourful poet and playwright Ronald Duncan who created many great works whilst resident in Welcombe and had regular famous visitors such as the composer Benjamin Britten and the singer Kathleen Ferrier.
Kirstie Allsopp who owns a house in the village said about Welcombe "..one of the most beautiful spots in the whole of the country, and I have been around all of the country." (North Devon Journal 14/8/08)
All food is prepared freshly in the farmhouse kitchen using as much locally sourced ingredients as possible. Meals are served in the dining room that was once the Victorian kitchen. Breakfast consists of cereals, toast, local preserves and a Westcountry cooked breakfast. Lunch is a light affair with salads and breads to allow room for Dinner featuring local meats and fish. We are also happy to cater for those with special diets.
There is a large lounge with log fire and plenty of room for everyone to stretch out for fun and relaxing evenings of chatting and reading.
