About us

 We are a private farm nestled within a hidden valley on the southern fringes of Dartmoor National Park. 


Home to our family since 2016, having fallen in love with the farm which was in urgent need of major restoration & renovation. 


That journey is still underway but we are delighted to offer one of the meadows to private camping for 28 days this summer *No further availability for 2019 - please email to register interest for summer 2020* .


Our extended family include a small flock of rare-breed Dartmoor Greyface sheep, a friendly cob, a miniature Shetland pony and coming soon, Sandy & Black pigs. 


A haven for wildlife hosting an abundance of wild birds, tawny owls, buzzards, woodpeckers, badgers, foxes, deer, and otters.
