Farm HolidaysSelf catering farm stays can be a great base for your family holidays. Our farm stay holiday is slightly different to most. The holiday accommodation is far enough away that you don’t have to be with the animals all the time, but close enough that you can be. Farm holiday accommodation is a great way to see Devon’s beautiful scenery and get a real feel for the countryside. Moorparks farm was built around 1850 and is a grade 2 listed building, the listing is due to it being a ‘Typical Devon farm of the area’. Also part of the listing is a ‘Milestone’ marker on the verge outside. We love showing holiday guests around the farm and introducing them to our different animals. We have chickens, ducks, standard and rare breed sheep. Always a family favourite are the alpacas and friendly goats.
COVID Safe & Secure HolidayAt Moorparks, we’re dedicated to providing a safe environment for our guests.
Both our cottage and barn lodgings are COVID-19 secure, and allow for ample privacy away from other guests and from us.
Each farm stay home also includes its own private garden area, so whatever the weather is like, you and your loved ones can stay safe and have fun.
Likewise, our facilities are isolated, self-sufficient lodgings that allow for great getaways for those who wish to avoid close contact with others during their stay. Extra measures can also be made upon request to accommodate those who require additional support. Please contact us for more information.
Farmyard FunAll of the animals in our Moorparks flock are either pets or rare breeds.
We treat our animals as one of our family, and we encourage visitors to get involved as much as they would like during their stay.
A farmstay is a great way to introduce children to farm animals. Children love coming to the chicken coop to collect their eggs. Why not wander over to the sheep pens to help feed and cuddle our furry friends?
There is so much to learn about the animals at our Devon farm . Children (and adults!) will have plenty to do if they want to stay on-site, and we are always happy to show people around our smallholding. Lambing time for the Greyface Dartmoor sheep is usually February/March and the Swiss Valais could be anytime through the year. Check our Facebook page for the latest updates. A stay during lambing time is amazing, pictures of the adorable lambs are a must-have for any scrapbook.
To see the latest news from around the farm, what’s happening near and see new animal arrivals check out our Facebook page.
