A compact and comfortable eco lodge overlooking grassland where owls hunt at dusk
Honeysuckle lodge’s big south-facing picture windows and veranda overlook grassland with views towards Dartmoor. It’s a great place for your self-catering holiday in Devon. In spring and autumn it’s a fabulous and peaceful retreat, with birdsong at your doorstep. In summer, it’s a great spot for a family holiday. You can easily keep an eye on children as they play in the meadow, or you can borrow bikes or take a boat out on the pond.
Unobtrusive on the outside, inside the lodge is light, cosy and warm with upcycled style, such as the piano cover headboard and the cable drum coffee table.
The lodge has a double room and a cross-over bunk room, plus a large open-plan kitchen/living area with a sofa bed.
There is a microwave and conventional (electric) oven, hob, kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery, TV, and DVD player.
The bathroom has a shower with a grab rail near the entrance. We can provide a baby bath if needed.
The solar hot water has immersion back up, and your power is from our 11kW wind turbine (and green grid backup). So your self catering holiday will be almost as green as Devon’s countryside! Our sustainability measures have twice won Wheatland Farm the VisitEngland Gold Award for Sustainable Tourism, and we also hold gold approval from the Green Tourism Business Scheme and the Devon Wildlife Trust.

After a great day exploring Devon, relax on the veranda, watch the birds, play volleyball / badminton on the mown court, or just enjoy a BBQ or camp fire in the meadow.
Your dogs are welcome with us too! There’s plenty of space for them to romp, and we can recommend great walks nearby.
A short walk (or drive) up the road takes you to a great farm shop on the neighbouring farm. Winkleigh village is two miles away (less than 10 mins on a bike, or about 25 minutes walk) and has good pubs, a small convenience store and several other shops including a good butchers.
