fremington’s hidden gem

Already dubbed the hidden gem of Fremington, Foxglove Lane is without doubt set to be the village’s most desirable development of beautiful new homes. 

Thoughtfully tucked away, but within easy reach of pretty much everything, Foxglove Lane’s much sought-after location has that magic mix of seclusion and accessibility — that balance of village life that’s usually so hard to find. Think rural bliss meets everyday convenience, surrounded by some of the best farmland views in North Devon.

Foxglove Lane will be a well-considered collection of just 37 generously proportioned, two, three and four bedroom homes from our own exclusive, Georgian-inspired Craft Collection. Great care has been taken with designing and sourcing the architectural details, such as the large symmetrical sash windows of the era, wider entrance doors and elegant hand-made ironwork porches with scalloped canopies. 

Designed to capture the best of traditional home building, injected with the essentials of modern day living to create beautifully built homes that look and function, well, beautifully!

This is countryside living with all the village benefits. Whether it’s a pint of milk you’re after, or you fancy a pint of something else, both the friendly local store and the cosy village pub are just a short stroll up the road, along with the chemist and post office — how handy is that? It’s also got its own quaint village hall, church, nursery and primary school.

A stone’s throw from the River Taw and surrounded by lush Devonshire farmland peppered with dairy cows, Foxglove Lane couldn’t be in a more perfect location.

an idyllic location

We know you’re going to love your bunnyhome so much that staying in will always be a joy, but seriously, there is so much good stuff on your doorstep at Fremington that you’ll want to venture out — occasionally!

For the ‘big shop’ or a big night out, Barnstaple is just 3 miles or so and the bus stop at the end of the road takes you right into town. Travelling further afield? No problem. There’s a train station at Barnstaple that takes you through spectacular Devonshire scenery to Exeter in just over an hour, and from Exeter St. David the main line can whisk you off to London in 2 hours. Road links to the A377 to Exeter and the A361 to Taunton are easy at Fremington, both of which connect with the M5.

In Fremington itself discover the River Taw and Fremington Quay, once a busy shipping yard and now reloved as a cafe & heritage centre so you can chill out and really make the most of the breathtaking views. Enjoy ‘Taste of the West’ award-winning, home-cooked dishes made from the West country’s finest locally-sourced produce.


Or for the more actively-minded, how about getting familiar with the Fremington Adventure Centre — North Devon’s destination for adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers? The rugged coastline (all within the UNESCO biosphere reserve) is the perfect backdrop for seaside fun, coasteering, SCUBA diving, kitesurfing, rock climbing and abseiling.

Talking of the coastline, at Fremington you’re spoilt for choice with stunning beaches literally on your doorstep. Instow is just 3 miles away, where you can indulge in some yummy farm food or a coffee from John’s award-winning farm shop, or sample the day’s fresh catch at the Boathouse, then take a walk along Barrack Parade and watch the fishermen come and go from Appledore. Or you can saunter at Saunton Sands, wander at Woolacombe or bathe at Bude, all just 30 mins from home. 

And not forgetting Fremington lies on the famous Tarka Trail, 180 miles of footpaths and cycle-paths through stunning countryside in a figure-of-eight route centred on Barnstaple. Now there’s an adventure just waiting to happen!
