Billingsmoor Farm is a 400 acre Organic Dairy Farm situated in Mid Devon, otherwise known as the Heartland of Devon. We milk 200 British Frisian cows.
Our farm is run on an organic system and is registered with the Organic Farmers and Growers association (insert Link). All of our milk is sold to Muller Wiseman Dairies who bottle it and distribute it to retail outlets and doorstep delivery.
We also have calves, pet pigs and chickens. Our farm attracts an abundance of wildlife and with our woodland we are very popular with the local birdlife who make their nests in the woods.
We were one of the first farms to work in conjunction with Featherdown farms to be able to offer people the chance to come and stay on a working farm and see for themselves how food is produced and how farmers manage the countryside.
Billingsmoor Farm in Butterleigh is a traditional Organic Dairy Farm and is on the Bradninch Estate, which forms part of the Duchy of Cornwall estate.
The Duchy of Cornwall and Prince Charles are well known for supporting both farming and the conservation of the countryside, and we here at Billingsmoor like to think that we can support this ethos in the work that we do here.
Our most recent addition is a lodge suitable for 10 people. This lodge sits in its own field so you will have lots of space around you.
We are pleased to have been in a joint venture with Featherdown Farm days since 2008.
All of our accommodation is in large canvas lodges that have all got a wood burning stove for heating and cooking, a double bedroom, a bedroom with bunk beds and of course the lovely cosy cupboard bed.
Each lodge also had a flushing toilet and running water as well as a large refectory table and a large sofa.
We also provide a large modern heated shower block.
The lodges provide everything you could need for your holiday including all crockery and cooking utensils. Linen is also provided.
Two of our canvas Lodges have got an en-suite hot water shower, and two of the tents have got wood fired hot tubs and a separate shower.
This lodge also has running water and flushing toilet. This lodge is proving to be popular with both large families and groups of friends alike.
All of our guests have the opportunity to see the cows being milked and learn a little bit about our farm. We have got an animal paddock with sheep, pigs and chickens which if happy will lay you eggs.
Although Billingsmoor is in the middle of the countryside with amazing views wherever you look, we are only a 10 minute drive from the M5, which means getting anywhere from here is very easy.
The lovely beaches to the south are only a 30 minute drive whilst the rugged North Coast is a 45 minute drive.
We are between Exmoor and Dartmoor and of course the beautiful Cathedral City of Exeter is 15 miles away. A lot of our guests return to us often as there is so much to do in this area.
Of course for guests that would rather stay on the farm there is the fabulous forest to explore and just simply walking over the fields and watching the animals is a real treat.
We have our own forest school which can be booked when you are here. To make you stay more comfortable we offer a range of services and food hampers that you can pre-order before your stay.
This ranges from bed making, arrival meals and breakfast and BBQ hampers. Once you have made your booking you will be able to download the welcome documents.
Dogs are very welcome to stay with you at Billingsmoor Farm but must be kept on a lead at all times. They must be booked in and should be booked at the time of booking.
We also have a small supply of High Chairs and Travel Cots for hire please contact the farm as soon as possible to reserve nursery furniture as we allocate them on a first come first served basis. .
The Feather Down Farm Days tents are wonderful accommodation with canvas walls, a big refrectory table and stove.
Great cabin bed for the kids to jump into, snug and exciting, your kids will love getting into this area and sleeping.
At Billingsmoor Farm the children get to do what they love doing, learning about nature through bug hunts and adventures. They are tired little souls by the end of the day.
Hot Tubs: Two of our tents have hot tubs.
Chickens: If you wish have your own coop next to your tent and look after some chickens. If you are lucky they might lay you some eggs! This can be arranged at booking time or directly with the farm.
Bread Oven: Robert lights the bread oven at least twice a week, and this gives you the chance to be “Jamie Oliver” for the evening.
Stewpots: We offer you the chance to cook your own stew on one of our stewpots. All the ingredients are provided as well as the stewpot. This can be booked at the time of booking or directly with the farm.
