South West

Wheatland Farm Eco Lodges you plan more. Wheatland farm has twice won Visit England’s Gold Award for Sustainable Tourism, but it’s more than award-winning accommodation: it’s what a countryside holiday is supposed to be.

Deep in the Devon countryside, where wheat is harvested in traditional stooks, lies Wheatland Farm. But it’s more conservation project than farm: and your stay becomes part of the story. The four lodges and a cottage let us manage the land for wildlife, including barn owls, dormice, orchids, glorious butterflies and flowers. Relax on your veranda while swallows swoop above the meadow, visit the cows in summer, enjoy a guided walk, have a campfire, and go boating on the pond (or even wild swimming). Balebarn Ecolodge is especially good for three generations, offering fabulous green comfort. It sleeps eight and has two bathrooms as well as gorgeous upcycled style and a stunning view over the wildlife pond through huge fold-back veranda doors. Kids love to explore, build dens, or just cycle the long drive - we have bikes from shunt-along to adult-size plus baby seats, a tag along and even a tandem. The nearby off-road Tarka Trail makes a wonderful bike adventure and our days o ut webpages will help
