Cosy Otter Cottage, by the farmyard pond
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 has had a substantial refit. We’ve rearranged the layout, knocking out a partial internal wall to include a new south facing stable door into the enclosed garden. It has made the cottage feel bigger and lighter and opened up more views over the pond. There’s plenty of style too, with upcycled features and hand made fittings crafted from recycled and reclaimed wood. There’s even been room to add a small library under the stairs!
There’s a new kitchen too, with an induction hob (and standard oven). Can’t use induction for medical reasons? Book Nuthatch Lodge instead, or talk to us about fitting a temporary hob for you. Of course, there’s 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 radiators 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

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…
