Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Warmhill Farmhouse, Bovey Tracey, Devon, sleeps 8-12 in 4 bedrooms.
The Farm is mentioned in the Doomsday Book and is still a working farm, breeding mainly Pedigree Ayrshire cattle and some rare breeds. The personal and dedicated approach of Libby & Brian to their animals is reflected in the conversion of the 15th Century Barn - it is relaxing and cool in summer, warm and inviting in winter and comfortable and unique all year round.
Prices include heat and light as well as bed linen and towels, so there are no hidden extras. The farmhouse is on the edge of the farmyard and is thatched. Although many old features remain, the house has most modern conveniences and is very comfortably furnished with a large farmhouse kitchen. It also has a small enclosed garden with garden furniture and a barbecue.
Hennock, a small rural village with its pub, school and ancient church is a 10 minute walk up Easy Lane - so called because it is a short cut to the village.
Bovey Tracey, known as the Gateway to the Moor, with its shops, pubs, restaurants, swimming pool, and other visitor attractions (notably the House of Marbles and the Devon Guild of Craftsmen) is about 2 miles, as are Canonteign Falls, reputedly the highest waterfalls in England.
The beaches at Dawlish and Teignmouth are within 7 miles. Exeter, with its Cathedral, underground passages and many historic buildings is 12 miles and the beautiful, unspoilt South Devon coast between Brixham and Plymouth is easily accessible.
The wilds of Dartmoor with its excellent walking and riding are nearby and for those wanting more excitement Torquay is about 12 miles away. For Golfers of all abilities there are at least five golf courses within 1/2 hours drive.
Children (and adults!) are encouraged to help with the animals and the farm has an abundance of wild life. Buzzards can regularly be seen and deer and badgers are here but they are more elusive.
The farm itself is steeped in history, many of the old Devon hedge-banks are medieval and there are old mine workings under one of the fields.
From £480 per week off-peak to £1500 per week peak. Short breaks are also available by arrangement at off-peak times.
