Family Holidays

Welcome to The Leaping Trout in Bickleigh, where family holidays come alive amidst the charm of the Devon countryside. Nestled alongside the river exe, our holiday haven offers an idyllic escape for families or large groups seeking unforgettable getaways.

From the moment you arrive, you'll be captivated by the warmth of our rustic but modern accommodation, thoughtfully designed to cater to every family's needs. Engage in joyful adventures as you explore the surrounding woodlands, take leisurely strolls across the historic stone bridge, or simply relish quality time spent by the gently flowing river.

Our array of family-friendly activities ensures that both kids and adults will be entertained, from fishing and cycling to traditional board games in our cosy lounge. Plus, when appetites beckon, our fully fitted kitchen are yours to create whatever your heart desire or alternatively why not visit the Fisherman’s cott next door for a delectable fusion of local flavours, satisfying even the most discerning palates.

Unite with your loved ones at The Leaping Trout for a family holiday that weaves together the beauty of nature, the comforts of home, and the cherished moments that make life's tapestry truly extraordinary.
