 Approaching the farm along the 1 km private lane passing through our woods, look for the wild deer and listen for the young Buzzards.

Situated in the centre of the farm the position of your cottage (Bramble or Jasmine) ensures peace and quiet with beautiful views.

The Cottages overlook Labdon Wood and valley with views to both Dartmoor and Exmoor. Outside each cottage is a cultivated dry stone walled area complete with wild flowers & herbs exclusive to you for a BBQ or just relaxing in the sun. To the rear - a large private garden completely enclosed by a stone wall - for the sun worshiper a seven hour suntrap.

Fully equipped - Lounge: Radio/CD/TV-Video etc. & refurbished to a very high standard, centrally heated self-catering with all linen, bedding, towels, and welcome pack included.

Every summer the Swallows return to Labdon Farm. They seek out their old nesting sites in and around the old stone barns and stables, when the young have hatched they will entertain you on summer evenings with skilful (and sometimes not so skilful!) flying. Count the many species of birds. Buzzards are frequently seen in pairs riding the thermals calling to their young.

 In spring, the banks and hedgerows are rich with Snowdrops, Primroses, Violets, and Bluebells. In early summer, Foxgloves, and Cow Parsley. Later you will find scented Honeysuckle, Dog Roses, Rosehips, and Blackberries.

Within walking distance, our beautiful 14th Century Eggesford Church watching over its River Taw equally famous for Salmon and Tarka the Otter, for the really energetic the Tarka Trail will allow you miles of meandering walks many along the banks of the River Taw.

 woods to walk in

There are several excellent Pubs and Restaurants within 10 minutes drive, and we are close to the coast (30 min) Chulmleigh for basic shopping (10 min) or Exeter (30mins) by train from Eggesford Station for the more adventurous requiring retail therapy.


We do hope that you find our Cottages of interest and look forward to welcoming you for a few days or a special longer holiday.
