When you are visiting Dartmoor for a family holiday or restful break, there is no better way of experiencing country life than staying on a working Dartmoor farm.  You can find superb, quality accommodation in traditional farmhouses, converted barns, cottages, and even log cabins that are situated on traditional working farms.


Some of our farms may be able to offer a hands on experience and allow you to get involved in everday life on a Devon farm.  Collecting fresh eggs, petting lambs, meeting cows, horses and pigs can be hugely exciting for the younger family!


Waking up to the sound of farm animals, birds singing and tractors working is a real pleasure, our skies over Dartmoor are clear and unpolluted so sunrises, sunsets and night skies studded with stars are spectacular.


Our farmers love their farms and their way of life, so you will be assured of a warm welcome, plenty of local knowledge and an opportunity to learn some real insights about life on a working farm on Dartmoor.
