Higher Biddacott Farm
Come and stay on a traditional Devon family farm worked with heavy horses. Relax in our comfortable mediaeval farmhouse and taste our delicious wholesome meals made with home produced and locally sourced ingredients. Curl up in front of the log fire after your candlelit dinner.
Let the Shire Horses take you for a wonderful wagon ride around the lanes and return for a scrumptious cream tea. In spring the hedge banks are littered with orchids, primroses and wild daffodils. Situated betwixt moor and a coast of sandy beaches, children are made welcome. Local attractions and stunning gardens open to the public are all close by.
Enjoy walking in the rolling Devon Countryside and appreciate the wildlife on the farm. Wander along the bridle path or follow the woodland trail by the stream. The footpath through the farm leads to the village cricket pitch in Chittlehampton with the beautiful church of St Hieritha, the Village Square and lively pub - The Bell.
Jonathan & Fiona also welcome you to learn the skill of working the horses on one of our "tailor made" courses. Take a hold of the reins for yourself! Watch the horses being prepared for taking a bride to her wedding or watch the young horses being trained for work.
