LIFE ON A DARTMOOR FARM

The experience

Bring your wellies to experience life on a working Dartmoor Farm. Wake up to the crow of the cockerel and start your day with a hearty full English breakfast with farm raised eggs, bacon, and sausages before heading out on a farm tour if you wish to feed the chickens, stroll through the water meadow to check on the cows, and pop into the 400 year old shippon to say hello to the pigs....all while being scrupulously supervised by farm cats Holly and Pringle of course! Once chores are done for the day, you can choose from local highly recommended adventures like rock climbing, kayaking, falconry from horseback, or perhaps a lovely woodland walk and a delicious cream tea.  Dinner at the local pub means it’s only a short walk back to your cosy bed.  Don’t forget to say goodnight to our farm dog!
