We do not have enclosed gardens, but can usually offer a field to walk in. The lanes around the farm are reasonably quiet with woodland areas and lake walks within three miles of us. Year round dog beaches just 20 mins drive away (Teignmouth River beaches and Shaldon).
We ask you not to leave your dog unattended at the property (they get distressed) and do not allow dogs upstairs and on the beds/furniture. Please bring your own beds, blankets, bowls, cage, and towels. Please see our Terms & conditions for more details. Pets are charged at £25 per pet, per stay.

#1 of 6 speciality lodging in Bovey Tracey
“Perfect place for a rural Devon stay
This is a beautiful place to stay with friendly and helpful hosts, a really handy pantry for supplies, pretty accommodation and easy access to the coast, pubs, bovey tracey and dartmoor. The 11 year olds really loved the freedom of the play area and being able to return after a busy day to chill out. Highly recommended for a stay in this beautiful part of Devon.”
“The perfect family escape
There’s so much to love about this place – the beautiful farm setting, the location (Beach 20mins, waterfalls and forests 15mins) the animals on your doorstep for the kids to enjoy, the play barn and play area but what makes it, is the thoughtful and welcoming hosts who have thought of everything.”
Very charming place and warm hospitality. For children, feeding animals is fantastic experience. If it’s bad weather, there are a lot of toys and you can play ping pongs, biliards etc. in the play barn. Highly recommended farm stay!”
