The Shippon is one of the converted farm buildings at Lower Hearson Farm which is a small family run farm set in fifteen acres of gardens, field and woodland.

Tucked away in the heart of the North Devon countryside in a secluded valley full of wildlife, Lower Hearson Farm is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Our six self catering holiday cottages are surrounded by two acres of gardens making this a safe place for children and a peaceful haven for adults.

Guests are very welcome to help us at feeding times for the animals, help to collect the eggs and round up the chickens when it is their bedtime.

Within the grounds we have an outdoor covered, heated swimming pool, a children's play area, sandpit, trampoline badminton net and a games room. Well behaved dogs are also welcome.

The Shippon is converted from the farm shippon with its own private parking and patio area where you can sit under the stars in the evening. There is so little light pollution here that the longer you look the magnificence of the milky way can be seen.

"My familly had a wonderful experience here"

Our holiday here was a great experience from day 1 - my family of 4 young boys just loved this place from the word go and hanging out with Farmer Graeme, helping him with his pigs (we always liked pigs now we love pigs) and chickens. The pool was great, the play hut was full of a wide range of toys, games, books, dvds for all ages and the grounds just lovely, with more outdoor toys, trampoline and sandpit. Our house, the Shippon was well equipped, comfortable and roomy. The location was just great. Our boys would have happily stayed and play all the time at the farm, all day every day for our 2 weeks holiday, but we dragged them away to the many gorgeous beaches nearby. There was lots to do and 2 weeks was just not enough. Because it was so hot, we did very little of the tourist attractions available to us except pool and beach. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and would love to come back again and see my pigs!
