Wonham Barton Farm
Self Catering Holiday Cottage
A Traditional Stone Farmhouse With Stunning Country Views
Our imposing, stone farmhouse and its courtyard of traditional barns command a fine position near Tiverton overlooking the Exe Valley with its wooded hillsides and peaceful river meadows. The view from our south-facing farmhouse wing is superb throughout the year. From the highest field on the farm a splendid panorama of countryside unfolds with Exmoor National Park in the distance. Our visitors tell us they really enjoy walking over our 300 acres of pasture and woodland. Early risers regularly see the native red deer close at hand and an abundance of other wildlife – badgers, buzzards, owls, foxes and plentiful hedgerow flowers and wild orchids.
Here, shepherding is still done the traditional way with our Scottish Border collies working our cattle and sheep; they also train for local sheepdog trials. While you are here, we trust time will run a little more slowly so you can savour the tranquility of our valley, and share part of our farming year.
We guarantee your comfort in our airy, spacious self-catering accommodation; we have a small but pleasant garden and ample car parking. We can help with additional services if you wish – basic provisions for your arrival, cot/high chair for children and we accept well behaved dogs by arrangement.
For the more energetic, Wonham Barton is near Exmoor National Park with breathtaking scenery for walking and riding; it is also conveniently located for some splendid exploration of historic, secretive Devon, varied attractions and dramatic coastlines both north and south. We hope you will be captivated by our special corner of Devon such that once discovered, you will want to return.
