Our Family have been welcoming guest to Pound Farm since 1981!
Robert and Anne Davey would like to welcome you to their 80 acre family run Beef & Sheep Farm.
Pound Farm has been in the Davey family for 3 generations, Rob’s grandparents bought the farm in 1945, and the Davey family have been farming here ever since. Anne also grew up on a working farm and her parents farmed near Honiton, in East Devon.
We took over the family Farm in 2001 and we absolutey love living here.
We also have 4 amazing boys.
We provide an on-farm experience.
You can see farming life throughout the seasons.
We start lambing mid-January and then again in March /April, this is a great time of year to visit and see all the newborn lambs.
We have on average 300 sheep, mainly Dorset Cross Ewes plus a small flock of Suffolk Ewes, the Rams are Dorsets & Charollais and we have about 120 Cattle.
Our chickens (15) are free-range, they enjoy wondering all across our farmyard & fields and they lay the most amazing eggs!
Being a working farm there is always something going on and you may have the opportunity to help feed some of the animals.
Each season has its own beauty,
Swallows nesting around the farm buildings in May, Hay harvesting takes place in June & July, with corn harvesting around August & September.
Enjoy the rural tranquil location.
There are several circular walking routes straight from the lodge with beautiful scenic views across the rolling hills, meandering river valleys and the patchwork of fields. It is easy to get out and about, there are a network of trails, footpaths and bridal paths. We provide walking routes and walking books at the lodge.
You can even look down to the mouth of the Exe Estuary and back across to Dartmoor on one of the walks.
We provide a small fishing pond which is stocked with Roach, Rudd and Perch.
You will be able to fish during the summer as many times as you like during your stay at no extra cost.
Or just relax, read a book, have a picnic and enjoy the pond area.
Birdwatching and wildlife
There is an abundance of garden, field and woodland birds, which can be seen from the Lodge.
Dragonflies, Moorhens, kingfishers, Canada Geese, Mallard ducks are often seen on our fishing pond, and as dusk falls you will hear the calls of a Tawny Owl.
You can buy our free range Pound Farm produce
“Whatever you are looking for you can be sure of a very warm welcome here and we will do all we can in making your stay one to remember…….”
A stunning little gem in the heart of Devon countryside. We were visiting my brother and family nearby and needed somewhere that could accommodate 5 of us and our dog. This cabin did not disappoint. Only built last year, it features a fully functional kitchen with everything you could need provided, including delicious cakes, milk, eggs, mushrooms, tea and coffee and other staples. The bedrooms were very comfortable and clean and the bathroom had a good size walk in shower and plenty of space with some nice toiletries provided. The wrap around veranda was fabulous with seats provided to take in the stunning views. We wish we had spent more time there as the weather was fabulous when we visited at the end of August, but we definitely plan to return sometime in the future for another stay. The owners Anne and Rob were very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely recommend if you want a tranquil and peaceful stay in the Devon countryside.
