Sleeping under the stars at Mill Leat Farm


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. 

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.

Incredible clear skies and wonderful views of the moor - perfect for star gazers.  

What we offer


We are offering something a little different for your outdoor holiday experience.

Secluded and tranquil, our camping meadow with a beautiful, furnished bell tent is exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. 

We provide the rare opportunity to experience complete 'wild camping' with little luxuries such as Egyptian cotton bedding & fluffy towels.
