Comfortable, well equipped cottages, beautiful surroundings, traditional 14th Century farmstead and rare breed animals. These are some of the ingredients that will make your stay in East Devon’s Blackdown Hills relaxing and enjoyable. There are great days out in the local area too. The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, Dartmoor and the Cathedral City of Exeter are all within easy reach.

Things to Remember

Please come prepared to help everybody else have a good trip:-
• Please respect the rules of the farm, be kind to the animals and not do anything that would damage the countryside.
• Please accept the sleeping accommodation allocated to you and be sensitive to the needs of others to rest.
• Please assist in the preparation of meals and clearing up after them.
• Please always get back to agreed meeting points on time.
• Please let the leaders know immediately if you have any concerns or worries.
As this trip is organised by Christians, there will be a few opportunities to join in devotions or discussions about life and faith if you are interested. However these are entirely voluntary and there will always be other activities you can be doing in the farm accommodation instead.
