The approach is from a traditional Devon lane with hedges that are filled with wild flowers and foliage. We are a working dairy farm. My husband Peter and son Philip milk 96 cows and rear all the heifer replacements. We have a new puppy named Jet who we hope will one day work on the farm and a cat called Megan.

Higher Woodley has three beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms.
The peach room has double aspect windows with far reaching views over the Devon fields and into Cornwall. The en-suite has a bath plus a power shower. Our blue room is our twin room but these beds can also be made into one super king size bed. The views from this room extend over the garden and across the Devon fields. The peach and blue room make ideal family rooms also as they are separate from the main rooms upstairs and opposite to each other giving parents and children the opportunity to have their own rooms but to be near each other. Our Red room is approached from its own staircase and has the original beams. The views from this room extend over the fields to Cornwall and Kit hill.
All our rooms are fully co-ordinated and equipped with a range of lovely toiletries, bath robes and a variety of teas and coffees.
Free Wi-Fi is available. Guests have a separate dining room where our Breakfast award winning menu is served. I source as much food as locally as possible. This includes Cornish dry cured bacon and Mr Howells award winning prize sausages, free range eggs and Primroses homemade marmalade. I am happy to cater for all dietary needs.


Our guests also have a separate guest sitting room where a tray of tea and homemade cake is served on arrival. There is a range of books, maps and literature for guests to browse through and plan your holiday. Plus a log fire for chilly evenings.
The garden is well stocked with rose flower beds and herbaceous border, garden furniture to sit and relax to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. There are also2 public footpaths to walk and enjoy. The Tamar Valley trails with walks through the woods and a Zip wire for the adventurous are very nearby.
Higher Woodley has ample level parking and has two inns nearby one within walking distance and the other a short 5 minute drive away. There is also a variety of excellent restaurants in Tavistock and surrounding villages. We are situated only 3 1/2 miles from the ancient stannery town of Tavistock, where there is a wealth of individual shops, and restaurants. National trust properties, including Cotehele, Buckland Abbey, Saltram and Lydford Gorge are only a 20 minute drive away. Dartmoor National Park is on our doorstep with its stunning landscape and walking opportunities . Golf and fishing are nearby Horse riding on Dartmoor. For garden enthusiasts The Garden House is at Buckland again only a 20 minute drive away. The north and South coast are approx. 45 minutes away along with the Eden Project and the Lost gardens of Heligan making us an ideal base to holiday in Devon and Cornwall.
I very much look forward to welcoming you to Higher Woodley Farm and sharing with you our beautiful part of England.
