About Otter Cottage

Cosy Otter Cottage with a woodburner is a charming property on our 21 acre North Devon farm, just outside the Saxon village of Winkleigh, midway between northern Dartmoor, Exmoor and the North Devon Coast.  Perfect for couples, pretty Otter Cottage sits in a wonderful spot just beside the farmyard pond, and is one of five award-winning properties at Wheatland Farm along with our four eco lodges.  All have Sustainable Tourism Gold Awards and South West Tourism Awards.  Up to two well trained dogs are welcome in the cottage and guests are free to explore all of the grounds (but please keep dogs out of the nature reserve).

Free pedal bikes are available (and two electric bikes can be hired - feel like a cycling superhero!) and walking, fishing, vineyards, tea shops and numerous fine inns (many of which welcome dogs) all feature in the local area. We have a 7 acre nature reserve within the farm!  A farm shop is just next door - pre-order a range of delicious Devon made produce and order wine for that special occasion from our local wine merchant who will happily deliver direct to your cottage door.

Four legged furry friends adore our acres of space, and up to 2 well behaved dogs are welcome in Otter Cottage. Many local inns also welcome dogs, and a wealth of walking opportunities surround us in the heart of Devon, along the nearby North Devon Coast and in northern Dartmoor. The only area dogs are not permitted on the farm is the nature reserve, and we do ask that dogs stay away from livestock and our free-range chickens.
