The 150 acre working farm is home to rare White Park cattle (less than 500 in the world). The owner (farmer and environmentalist) is pleased to show you around the farm which has a Devon Wildlife Trust Silver Award and won Highly Commended in the 'Britain's Most Beautiful Farm' awards.

Inside, the house is full of light, fun, interest, comfort, well-decorated; a home.

About this location

The Devon region

Devons River Country: Devon�s middle. This is farmers� Devon. You come here to be amongst them: to walk and admire their beautiful, rich-soiled, hilly and wooded farmland and enjoy their excellent, proper pubs in usually hill-top, compact, unspoilt villages; and to fish for trout and perhaps salmon in the deep wooded and very beautiful valleys of the rivers Torridge, Taw, Tamar and Exe especially and for trout in reservoirs. Great, magnetic views of Dartmoor and Exmoor from most hill-tops, and it�s an easy drive to both. But don�t think a daily trip to the sea will be a doddle.

Tiverton is the main town (you can go barging on its canal); Crediton, in its red-soil vale, Torrington, where glass is blown, and South Molton are the others. All have proper, individual, useful, and, in some cases unusual, shops, for the locals firstly. Cider is made at Winkleigh, and it�s a good place for lunch. Hatherleigh is good for several things, including its market.


Bickleigh: thatched village (two riverside pubs), 3 miles south of Tiverton (good shops, canal barging, indoor swimming pool, sports centre, riding stables). Fishing (trout, salmon). M5, 11 miles; Exeter, 12. Dartmoor and Exmoor, about 15 miles; north Devon beaches (Woolacombe) or south coast (Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton), about 21 miles.
