We have lived at Burrow Wood Farm since January 2009. The farm is now a smallholding, with 10 acres, featuring the main Georgian  Burrow Wood Farm Minifarmhouse, and the detached modern Burrow building.  There are wonderful far-reaching views of the rolling Devon landscape that it overlooks. Although it is no longer officially farmed now, we do run a private animal sanctuary here, and all the animals that come to us, stay here for life.  We hope that our guests will fall just as much in love with the timeless, rural lifestyle we enjoy, surrounded by nature and stunning scenery, and winding down to our pace of life, away from all the hustle and bustle.

The Burrow cottage was previously one of the pre-war farm barns, which had been used as the old corn mill. We have tried to retain the scale, style and materials of the local modern vernacular. In doing so we hope we have created a very contemporary and yet still rustic barn conversion, which is an individual and special place.  Burrow (31)

We (myself Claire, my mother Avril, and two older children Jonty and Jago) are on hand across the driveway to The Burrow, in the main farmhouse, and are very willing to help in any way we can, should the need arise. If you want to keep to yourself, that is fine too!

We have a myriad of animals that live here with us – all, even the farm animals, are pets.  Llamas, sheep, ponies, parrots, dogs, cats  are all pets, and will come if you shout their names. You can read all about them in the “Our Farm” section.

We also act as a wildlife release site for the RSCPA Wildlife Team, so you may be lucky enough to be here Burrow Wood Farm Farmhousewhen we are fostering or releasing wild animals.

We look forward to welcoming you to our little slice of East Devon heaven.
