A cosy Devon cottage with wood burner

Cosy Otter Cottage, by the farmyard pond

Otter cottage Wheatland Farm Devon june15640w
This delightful Devon self catering cottage offers peace and quiet on our award-winning farm. It sleeps 4 in double and twin rooms.

New for 2017: Otter Cottage at Wheatland Farm is having a substantial refit. We are putting in a new kitchen, replacing the pine table with something more stylish (wait and see!), rearranging the layout to include a new south facing stable door into the enclosed garden, as well as repainting, re-tiling etc. We think it’s going to make this quaint Devon cottage so much nicer, making the most of the views over the pond and bringing in more light. Work is already underway, and will be completed by the time the cottage opens for spring 2017. So please bear in mind that the pictures below are of the old layout.

The new kitchen will of course be fully equipped. There will be a standard oven and induction hob (Can’t use induction for medical reasons? Book Nuthatch Lodge instead, or talk to us about fitting a temporary hob for you). There will be a microwave and a fridge freezer, kettle, toaster and the usual bits and pieces needed for your self catering holiday.

Cottage with woodburner

This Devon cottage with woodburner makes a lovely cosy retreat all year round. We supply a start up basket of wood, then charge you at cost for refills. But if you don’t want the hassle of lighting a real fire don’t worry, there are electric radiators up and downstairs too.

Local Devon food

When it comes to food, Devon offers lots of treats and there are plenty of good pubs nearby offering gorgeous meals out. Don’t worry about doing the shopping either – you can have your groceries delivered, whether from the farm shop up the road, a local online grocer, or a supermarket.  And if you fancy few bottles to help you unwind on holiday ring Bruce, our friendly wine merchant from Grape and Grain in Crediton (01363 777719). He’ll advise and drop off for you on his way home to Winkleigh.

Cottage with 2 Bedrooms

Of course, you’ll need a good night’s sleep. The bedrooms are upstairs, with a double room looking out over the ponds (one of the best views on Wheatland Farm). There’s also a twin room. If you need something more accessible please consider one of our one level lodges. Honeysuckle Lodge would be good for a couple or a small group, or for a bigger group consider our gorgeous Balebarn Lodge, which is one level throughout and has a wheelchair friendly wet room. Balebarn Lodge and Otter Cottage also work well together for groups up to 12.

Cottage with bath

Otter Cottage at Wheatland Farm has an upstairs bathroom with over-bath shower, toilet and basin.

Named after the otter seen pilfering the pond one morning, Otter Cottage has a fenced garden and glorious views over the farm and to Dartmoor. Watch out for the resident moorhen family in the back garden and the emerald flash of a kingfisher on the perch over the pond…

Explore our nature reserve, borrow a bike or walk to the nearby farm shop, or just relax! Dogs (max 2 in this cottage) are welcome. There are lots of other things to do nearby too.

Bookings for Otter Cottage include all your electricity (100 % green), beds made up, towels, and scones on arrival. And yours will be a green holiday: almost as green as Devon’s countryside – with free bikes to borrow, extensive recycling facilities etc, all of which has won numerous environmental awards.
