If you are looking for adventure and adrenalin, then Wheeldon Farm Adventure Cottages, located in a working farm environment and nestled within the South Hams, is the ultimate holiday cottage destination. Pet friendly and set within 240 acres of unspoilt farmland, including miles of footpaths and green lanes, ideal for walking, cycling or 4x4 driving, guests can enjoy a range of on-site facilities suitable for all the family, including a heated indoor swimming pool with a private changing room and shower, plus there is a fitness room within the swimming pool complex overlooking the pool, with a cross trainer and treadmill. It is also just a short distance from some of South Devon’s finest beaches and tourist attractions.
The Wheeldon Off-Road Centre, adjacent to Adventure Cottages, boasts a purpose-built, 30,000 square foot indoor arena and junior training circuit, and is the ideal year-round venue for the whole family to learn to ride a motorcycle in a fun, safe and controlled environment. All children staying on holiday for 7 days in one of the five cottages at Wheeldon Farm (refs 27214, 27215, 27216, 29983 and 31239) are given a free private full taster bike session in the highly acclaimed Junior Academy, providing children with the opportunity to experience the ultimate two-wheel off-road adventure for the first time. The instructors at Wheeldon Farm are all ACU accredited and will guide the children through their paces every step of the way. All the kit, clothing, boots, gloves, helmets and fun bikes are provided. All that’s needed is the enthusiasm to have a great deal of fun! Suited to all ages from 7 years to fit seniors. Children’s taster sessions are free of charge, with adult and subsequent children’s riding available to those staying in the cottages at a preferential rate.
In addition to all the motorbike fun, a range of other activities can also be organised locally, including horse riding, golf, go-karting and trout and carp fishing. Also, clay pigeon shooting, air rifle and archery are available on-site - these are run by a fully qualified instructor and all equipment is provided. The activities run on a Monday, Thursday and Sunday. Prices will be charged accordingly when bookings are made. The master bedroom in each property (except ref 31239) features a flatscreen TV. Home-made meals can be pre-ordered and delivered to the cottages. Please note, extra activities and catering requests must be pre-booked with Wheeldon Farm Adventure Cottages prior to guests’ arrival at the site.

    We had a fantastic break away. The cottage had everything that we needed and more. The site was brilliant, with the biking, games room, grass areas and swimming pool. The owners went out of their way to make us feel really welcome and the cake we found in our cottage on arrival was lovely. We will definitely be holidaying there again.

    A great holiday break for our 15 year old daughter undertaking off-road trail bike riding. Superb instruction! Would not return simply because we only stayed there as a holiday option to get our daughter familiar with motorbikes before she reaches road legal age.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your Reevoo. We are so pleased that your bike riding holiday was helpful to your daughter. It was lovely to meet you all.......good luck with all your bike riding in the future.
