Nestled within 240 acres of unspoilt farmland, in the glorious South Hams midway between Dartmoor and the stunning south Devon beaches, Wheeldon Farm Adventure Cottages are the perfect choice for family, friends and couples to enjoy a relaxing retreat or an action packed escape at any time of year. The four delightful, pet-friendly barn conversions (refs 27214, 27215, 27216 and UKC748), which could be booked together for larger parties, sit within a lovely courtyard setting surrounded by miles of footpaths and green lanes, ideal for walking or cycling. The master bedroom in each property features a flatscreen TV, and home-made meals can be pre-ordered and delivered to the cottage (arranged direct with the owner). The cottages lie just a short distance from some of south Devon’s finest beaches and tourist attractions, including the historic town of Totnes which is just 15 minutes away and sits on the River Dart with cruises down river to Greenway and Dartmouth. A cosmopolitan town, Totnes, 7 miles away, has a vast array of independent shops, weekly markets, galleries, leisure centre and many lovely restaurants, bistros and cafés. The seaside towns of Paignton and Torquay are 40 minutes’ drive, and it is just a 15-minute drive to the yachting haven of Dartmouth, and the coastline between Dartmouth and Kingsbridge, both 7 miles away, has many stunning beaches, hidden coves and fantastic coastal walks.

Guests of these cottages can also 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 a fitness room within the swimming pool complex overlooking the pool, with a cross trainer and treadmill. If you are looking for adventure and an adrenalin rush, then Wheeldon Farm Adventure Cottages will not disappoint. 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 and controlled environment. Discounted rates are available for children and adults during the school holidays (booking by arrangement and on arrival), providing children and adults 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. For some activities, 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.

There is also a BMX and skate park with ramps, but visitors must bring their own helmet and safety wear otherwise they will not be admitted to use them. 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 - 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. Please note, extra activities and catering requests must be pre-booked with Wheeldon Farm Adventure Cottages prior to guests’ arrival at the site.

    Great place to stay. Quiet but enough to do in the evening on site with a games room and a pool. Owners were great very friendly . You do have to drive everywhere and the roads are narrow but an outstanding area. Will go again and will recommend to friends. Great value for money

    The cottages are clean and have all the basics for a good holiday, the owners who live on site are very friendly and will help with any questions you may have, most of the bedrooms are down stairs as the lounge and kitchen are upstairs. There is a private balcony that over looks some great views and if you have good weather there are bbqs available to use. The cottages are on a farm and all roads leading to the farm are single lane and unlit, these are used by alsorts of vehicles so can get very muddy! There is a indoor swimming pool that my 3 year old loved but the water was a bit too cold for my 10 month old, there is also a games room that has a full sized pool table, 2 ping pong tables, flat screen tv with sky and a Bluetooth sound system for your music needs. The games room is heated and has 2 sofas so is great for relaxing with friends or the family. They have a indoor motocross track that you can pay to use which is awesome! They supply all the kit,bike and tuition needed, we also did 2 morning of green laneing on the bikes with the guide Andrew, if you have a bike road licence it's a must as it was some of the best fun I've ever had. The cottages are in a quite rural position so if you are used to city life you can't just pop to the shops for some bread or beer! The shops are about 7-8 miles away and you will need to go by car, there are some takeaway places that will deliver but you have to ring them to confirm, we ordered a Chinese that had a 9 mile journey to us. There isn't a pub that you can walk to either so stock up on your booze of choice, that said there are some great pubs within 10 mile radius and for kids the Avon inn has a lovely play ground in there garden, most pubs also allow you to take your dogs in as long as they are well behaved. All in all a great holiday and if you are lucky enough to get the weather too it would be hard to beat, the only small down sides were that the wifi was next to useless and mobile data can be hit or miss, Vodaphone wasn't too bad but 3 didn't work much especially inside, the TVs in the cottages could do with sky as they only have freeview, we took a PS4 and used mobile data (as wifi didn't work) to connect to Netflix which solved that problem.
