Our farm

Situated approximately 2 miles from the sea and nestling in the fold of a valley on the edge of ancient woodland, the Grade II listed Holyford Farm is set in a truly beautiful location.

The site is first mentioned in the Saxon Land Charter dated 1005 with the name Horregan, describing the nearby ford over the stream (forming a land boundary at that time).


The current east wing of the farmhouse (The Old Farm House) comprises the original late Tudor period building. Holyford Woods has an abundance of wildlife and offers some wonderful country walks literally on the doorstep.

Our sheep

Whilst staying with us you can meet and greet our flock of friendly Grey Face Dartmoor sheep.
Lambing takes place in April.


Attractive, docile and easily handled, the Dartmoor also known as the 'Improved' Dartmoor are descended from the local breeds which grazed the low ground in and around Dartmoor.


They have immense strength of constitution, developed through withstanding the severe winters and exposed conditions which exist on the Moor.
