Spacious Beech Lodge is our largest family friendly lodge sleeping 6 to 8 guests, located within our 21 acre award-winning North Devon farm between Dartmoor and Exmoor. Dogs are welcome, and the lodge is surrounded on three sides by trees and has a spacious wrap-around veranda with views across our wildlife rich grassland. A farm shop is a 10 minute walk away on an adjacent farm, and a range of family friendly facilities and things to do are onsite including exploring our 7 acre nature reserve, fishing on our smaller pond, wild swimming in the big wildlife pond, pond dipping or enjoying a guided nature walk. Families revel in our acres of space which contain a camp fire site, swings, play areas and BBQ areas.
Beech Lodge is one of five multi award-winning eco-friendly properties at Wheatland Farm. Three further lodges and a cosy cottage are also onsite. Free pedal bikes are available for guests to use, and there's a tandem and two electric bikes to hire. We'll happily provide cots and high chairs etc. on request. The farm sits just outside the pretty village of Winkleigh, and is ideally placed for exploring the heart of Devon and for reaching the North Coast beaches and Dartmoor. Attractions including The Big Sheep and Rosemoor Gardens are within easy reach, and Devon's off road Tarka Trail makes a great day out. Several Devon pubs serving food are within a mile or two of the farm - many also welcome dogs.
A spacious family friendly and pet friendly holiday lodge sleeping 6 to 8 guests.
Wheatland Farm is a real family friendly farm holiday experience, and no need to leave the family pet behind. Two well trained dogs are welcome in Beech Lodge. Dogs are allowed across the farm, accept in our 7 acre nature reserve and we do ask that you keep your pets away from our hens and livestock. There is lots of space for children to play and explore. The farm is down a long drive with no public paths, offering youngsters plenty of freedom. We have free pedal bikes onsite, available in a range of sizes. Explore the nature reserve, enjoy family barbecues and spend a day exploring Devon's family friendly off-road Tarka Trail.
Beech Lodge is available February to October plus Christmas and New Year. Short breaks are also offered except during a six week period in the summer school holidays. We have a selection of ecolodges and a cottage within the farm, available to book individually or together for larger groups.
On booking we email detailed directions to guests from the M5 at Tiverton, and via Eggesford, as well as from the A30 East and West, via Widdon Down and North Tawton. Wheatland Farm Eco Lodges and Cottage sit just outside the pretty Saxon village of Winkleigh. From Winkleigh village, take the A3124 north, continuing past the recreation ground on your right. When the road swings left, take the right hand turn and look for the signpost for Chulmleigh. After about half a mile you will see Fiona's farm shop just to your left.
The farm is on the right, about half a mile on from the farm shop. To pick up your keys, continue on down the track passing our next door neighbour's bungalow and the car park for the ecolodges until you reach the end of the drive. The farmhouse is the white building and our front door is just down some steps (ring if these are a problem and we’ll come out and meet you). We look forward to welcoming you.
