SORRY – SOLD FAST.
LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION: We have another unexpected availability this time in Beech Lodge (sleeps 6) available from 15 to 22 August. Cost £752. We will throw in free use of the hot tub, and a bottle of Winkleigh cider.
Any family booking direct with Wheatland Farm for a summer week can opt for a free 2hr craft /nature activity. They will be restricted to outside activities this year, and come with some covid distancing measures, but we’ll still have fun. Wood turning on the pole lathe is popular (make a candle stick or an egg cup), fashion a dragonfly from copper wire, go pond dipping, cook campfire bread, or even make nettle string!
Award Winning Devon Lodges
Wheatland Farm is a nature reserve that has won many accolades for green tourism. In 2020 we hold the SILVER Award for Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable Tourism in Devon, and the Bronze award for the whole South West region.
We held Gold in the Green Tourism Business Scheme from 2008 to 2016 (but have now left the scheme due to concerns about its expansion plans) and held Gold level approval from the Devon Wildlife Trust since 2007 until the scheme was discontinued.
In both 2012 and 2015 Wheatland Farm won England’s top national award for sustainable tourism (the Gold award from Visit England), marking a very substantial investment in renewable energy, and our main eco build, Balebarn Lodge respectively. These efforts also won us the Gold award for sustainable tourism twice for both Devon (2011,2014) and for the South West region (2012, 2015).
We run the whole farm for wildlife, and one third of it, Popehouse Moor, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its culm grassland habitats and rare plants and animals. We use traditional management techniques here in consultation with Natural England and the Devon Wildlife Trust. By staying here you help make this management financially viable. We take great care over the environmental impact of both the business and our own lifestyles – if you want to know more, see our environmental policy, read our greening blogs or ask us a question.
