Anderton House is on the edge of the charming, peaceful village of Goodleigh, set in the rural countryside of North Devon.
Nearby Coombe Woods has trails for walks through woodlands full of fascinating wildlife. You can experience wildlife from around the world, too, with a visit to Exmoor Zoo.
Barnstaple is less than 3 miles away with its historic Pannier Market. Railway enthusiasts will enjoy boarding a steam train at Woody Bay station for an adventure on the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway.
Enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and impressive plant collections in the magical haven that is Marwood Hill Gardens. Discover the treasures of Arlington Court and its very own Carriage Museum.
Notable museums nearby include the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon (3.5 miles), the Burton Art Gallery and Museum (13 miles) and the South Molton and District Museum (14 miles). You can gain free entry to exhibitions at all of these places with a National Art Pass, which enables its members to enjoy free entry to over 240 museums, galleries and historic houses throughout the UK as well as 50% off entry to major exhibitions.
The pass is presented by one of Landmark's partners, the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art, which has been supporting museums and galleries for over 110 years by helping them to buy and display great works of art for everyone to enjoy. Income raised through the National Art Pass goes straight back into their charitable programme. Find more about it at artfund.org/national-art-pass.
