Beech Eco Lodge
Beech Lodge is the largest of Wheatland Farm’s three wooden eco lodges, sleeping 6 . This lodge has a Hot Tub (optional, for a £35 charge*).
Woodland Eco Lodge
Beech Eco lodge has trees on three sides, and two verandas. The main veranda looks south over grassland where owls often hunt in at dusk and butterflies abound in summer. A smaller veranda, which catches the morning sun, overlooks the Hot Tub and leads off the master bedroom.
Exceptionally well insulated, and running entirely on renewable energy (mostly generated on site), Beech Lodge provides a low carbon holiday home surrounded by nature. Enjoy the bird feeders, the summer flowers and butterflies, or even Devon’s autumn colours, knowing yours is a guilt free ‘green holiday’.

Blending with its surroundings outside, inside Beech Eco Lodge is light and airy while staying warm and comfortable. It’s a great place for a low carbon Devon holiday, offering:
- Master bedroom with double bed and sliding doors to private veranda

Your Eco Lodge Stay
You don’t need to be ‘super green’ to stay at Wheatland Farm – it’s for everyone (and your holiday will be comfortable, warm and ‘normal’!). But just by staying here you are part of a change for good because your holiday helps pay for Wheatland Farm’s conservation work. Even your hot tub water gets reused in a mini reed bed! To say thanks, we’d be delighted to take you on a free wildlife walk.
An Even Greener Devon Holiday
Wheatland Farm makes it easy to ensure your holiday is even more low impact – if you want to. For example you can take a car free day out (or even a car free holiday!), shop locally, and use Wheatland Farm’s extensive recycling facilities. Have a look at our Visitors’ Charter and our Environment pages.
Holiday With Your Dog
Your dogs are welcome with us at Wheatland Farm! There’s plenty of space for them to romp, and we can recommend great walks nearby, and lend maps.
Access For All Ages And Abilities
