Escape to a simpler life with Jayne and Robert

Nestled in the depths of picture-perfect Devon countryside, you will learn everything about organic dairy farming with Jayne and Robert Lammie and their 200 Friesian dairy cows. The farm walk and visits to the milking parlour make this farm a must if you want your family to know more about how food gets from field to fork. All the canvas hideaways are located in the middle of the meadow where you will have panoramic views of the rolling countryside - all in all the ideal setting for a family holiday in Devon.

Quintessential Devon on your doorstep

Want to go barefoot on the beach? Then drive to Exmouth’s famous family beach and feel the soft sand between your toes. There is a riding stable near the farm, which makes horse-riding lessons an inviting prospect. Alternatively, the farm is just 20 miles from Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks. Exeter is only a short drive away and offers a wealth of activities including a wonderful cathedral.

What to do at Billingsmoor Farm

The surroundings of this beautiful organic dairy farm encapsulate what a family holiday in Devon is all about. A magical woodland creates a safe and natural backdrop that will provide youngsters of all ages with hours of entertainment, making dens and letting their imaginations run wild in the glorious fresh air. The cows are milked twice a day - an unmissable experience during your stay here. The oven will be fired up during your stay so you can create the unforgettable pizza of your holiday. When the night draws in, if you’ve booked a canvas hideaway with its own hot tub, why not have a good soak and gaze up at the starry sky before calling it a day and retiring to your comfy bed for the night.

Ask the farmer

The farm tour is a must if it’s on offer. But you don’t wait till then. The farmer will be delighted to tell you more about how what goes on at the farm at any time.

The farm shop

It’s great for the basics and usually even better for local produce and low food miles. And every Feather Down farm shop operates on an honesty basis.

Fantastic stay! Our 2 children who loved being on a working farm, seeing the cows and looking after our chickens, who they named Michael and Elsa. The tents are fab! They have everything you need and we enjoyed building the fire each day. I would recommend getting a tent with a hot tub

We had a great holiday at Billingsmoor Farm and made some fantastic memories. Robert and Jayne were such lovely hosts and we would recommend Jaynes delicious chicken casserole as an arrival meal which was exactly what we needed after a long journey.

This was our third Featherdown farm experience and just as lovely a setting as the others, with wonderful views. Jane and Robert were extremely welcoming and made us feel immediately relaxed on our arrival. We enjoyed seeing the cows crossing the field in front of us twice per day for milking and it was great to see them being milked down at the barn. There was a friendly pig and sheep that enjoyed our scraps. Our 'rented' chickens tolerated our children playing with them although sadly they didn't produced any eggs for us this time. The hot tub fire requires dedicated attention to get to temperature but it pays off eventually. It was pretty wet at times during our stay but it always felt cosy in the tents and we all slept well.

Amazing as always! Great location, tents, very hospitable farmers, amazing local produce. Just a tiny suggestion to make the farmtour a bit more fun for the kids ( they got a bit bored), and also pizza night was not as well organised as on other farms . We went to another FDfarm last year and it was a fun night for all the kids on the farm who get to choose their own toppings for the farmer to cook it on a proper pizza base in the oven and for all to enjoy.

Enough 'glam' to keep the non-campers happy! Very relaxing, peaceful and the most delicious croissants for breakfast. Jayne & Robert are very welcoming and great at recommending things to do. I will definitely return - even our teenager enjoyed herself. Wish we had stayed longer.

our own private getaway. beautiful site with clear views of the countryside from our tent. Kids loved foraging in the forest for firewood and visiting the cows throughout the day. The meat in the BBQ pack was fabulous and the hot croissants and pain au chocolate in the morning was an absolute treat. This was our third feather down vacation and quite possibly our favorite yet.
