Upper Shadymoor

Walking, rambling & hiking on holiday

Feather Down farms offer plenty of walking on and around their properties. For one, there is the very fun and so, much-liked, treasure trail of Forest of Bowland near Lancaster to potter through. Now you’re warmed up, head off into the fells, valleys, and moor-land of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty-designated Forest of Bowland on the edge of the farm. Any energy kept back by younger members of the party will be given up in the farm’s play barn. In between the dramatic landscapes of Scotland, from Chesters in Roxburghshire, Feather Down farms take in some of the UK’s outstanding walks, rambles and hikes. These are walking holidays with the perfect base!


National Trust recommended walks by the farm

Visiting Billingsmoor Farm in Butterleigh, Devon, places you near the National Trust-highlighted walks of both Killerton and Ashclyst Forest to enjoy outstanding walking holidays. The former follows a figure-of-eight through Devonshire country dotted with orchards. While the latter takes in sunken lanes and varied woodland, a natural habitat to a profusion of butterfly species.
