Lower Hearson Farm is a small family run farm set in fifteen acres of gardens, field and woodland. We run the farm on a small scale aiming to be as self sufficient as possible in fruit, vegetables and meat. Depending on the time of year that you come here you will see life on a small farm with sheep, lambs, traditional breed chickens (Welsummer, Black Rock and Light Sussex), chicks and rare breed (Oxford Sandy and Black) pigs and piglets. We are members of the British Pig Association and have a strong commitment to rearing animals in as natural a way as possible.

Guests are very welcome to help us at feeding times for the animals, help to collect the eggs and round up the chickens when it is their bedtime. We are happy to share our experience with any visitors that are interested in living in as self sufficient a way as possible with tips ranging from looking after the animals to growing leeks in your back garden (which is how we started).

Tucked away in the heart of the North Devon countryside in a secluded valley full of wildlife, Lower Hearson Farm is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Our six self catering holiday cottages are surrounded by two acres of gardens making this a safe place for children and a peaceful haven for adults. Well behaved dogs are also welcome. As this is a working farm with livestock dogs must be kept under control at all times.

Facilities Within the grounds we have an outdoor covered, heated swimming pool, a children’s play area, sandpit, trampoline and a games room. We are delighted to be able to offer our guests access to the fabulous swimming and gym facilities at High Bullen Hotel which is a fifteen minute drive away. Why not take a stroll around the farm’s field, woodlands and lane to enjoy the countryside views, our animals and the wildlife.
