We had a lovely relaxing holiday at Wheatland Farm and have been recommending it to friends and family since! We stayed in Otter Cottage for a week in January, and it was cosy, comfortable and warm. We were really impressed with the emphasis on being green, particularly the solar hot water, recycling facilities and bio-digesters. It was a nice touch to be given scones when we arrived, and it was useful to be able to borrow local maps and to have Ian & Maggie nearby if we had any questions! The free bikes were a great idea and were fun for exploring the narrow Devon lanes and popping into the village. It was really inspiring to see the SSSI nature reserve and to hear about all the good work Ian & Maggie are doing to help the local wildlife. If you love nature, peace and quiet and enjoy walking (Dartmoor, Exmoor and the Tarka Trail aren't far away), this is a wonderful place to stay. We hope to return!
