Cycle around Ruby Country (Take your bike on holiday)

We have many circular cycle routes around Forda Farm, throughout Ruby Country. So why not take your Bike on holiday or hire one locally while you are here. Val has lot’s of maps which you can borrow. Pack lunches can also be provided for the day ahead. Close to cycle route 3 and the official Land’s End to John O’ Groat’s route means that Val is happy to look after the long distance cyclist too.

What will you do in your holidays?



Farming is great fun however large your tractor. Lots of different things to do from using rollers on the garden to tidying up the front of the house. A young farmer’s work is never done. BUT ¬†breakdowns happen no matter the size of machinery then we need baler twine and brute force!

Spotted on Sunday stroll at church Cider and Pasty walk

Cider and Pasty walk takes place next door to Forda Farm B&B near Bude and Holsworthy

Cows are looking to join us on a cider and pasty walk!

Did the cows drink too much cider, at the cider and pasty walk through their farm this weekend? I hope not. it would make the milk taste odd, I think. The weather held fair and around fifty people took to the fields and streams for a stroll around local farm to raise money for the church in Thornbury, near Holsworthy. Children had great fun, lot’s of cider and pasties consumed by the parents and grandparents. A really great day out.
