Local attractions

Escot Park

A beautiful stately home within a traditional rural Devon estate, set in 1200 acres of stunning countryside. Escot hosts family-friendly open air concerts and plays throughout the summer, and the historic gardens include a fantasy woodland and a new maze featuring 4000 beeches.

Cadhay

A beautiful Elizabethan manor house built around a central courtyard, and dating from 1550. It is considered one of the treasures of Devon.

Dorset and East Devon Coast — the Jurassic Coast

We're just six miles from the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site on the south coast. It stretches from Orcombe Point near Exmouth in East Devon to Old Harry Rocks near Swanage in East Dorset, a distance of 95 miles. Its entire length can be walked on the South West Coast Path.

Exeter

With a touch of buzzy, big city atmosphere and a thriving arts scene, Exeter is one of the liveliest cities in the southwest, and just 12 miles from Gosford Pines. The city's long heritage means there are plenty of historical attractions, and the excellent selection of bars, cafes and restaurants makes Exeter a vibrant place to be after dark.

Ottery St Mary

Ottery St Mary lies on the River Otter, about ten miles east of Exeter. It is one of the oldest and most historic towns in Devon — the Parish bounds remain virtually unchanged since they were fixed in 1061.

Tar barrels is a major event held in Ottery on the 5th November — Guy Fawkes Night — when flaming tar barrels are carried through the town in a tradition dating from the 17th century.

Church St. Mary's Church is the jewel of Ottery, and a focus for visitors. A church existed here pre-Conquest and, with its Manor, was given to the Cathedral Chapter of Rouen by Edward the Confessor. The present structure, crowning the hill above the town, dates from the forteenth century. The Ottery Clock is one of a group of famous 14th to 16th century astronomical clocks to be found in the West of England, and is one of only four pre-Copernican clocks in the country.
