The Farm

Pond Cottage, Tiverton, Devon

The farm house is a "Devon Long House" parts of which date back 400 years, with a range of stone barns and surrounded by its own garden, arboretum, orchard, swimming pool and ancient pond which laps against the stone walls of the granary.

Inside the granary is the ancient twin screw cider press and crusher, used every autumn to make cider and apple juice from our 10 acres of organic apple orchard. You are welcome to participate in this activity, together with apple picking, and try some of our home-pressed apple juice.

The cobbled court yard features a unique 18th century hen house which is still in use.

There is a picnic area, a range of farm walks and tours of the working farm are also available.

During the lambing season in March/April visitors are very welcome to help with bottle feeding the lambs.

Thank you for making our Easter this year such a wonderful event. Pond Cottage is perfect for 2 couples or a family to spend time in the rolling hills of the Devon countryside amongst sheep, ducks and chickens. We enjoyed going for walks, visiting the local pubs and even found time to visit Exeter for the memorable Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the jazz festival at Budleigh Salterton.

Thank you for being the consummate hosts with home made jam and a bottle of wine on arrival.
