relaxing bank holiday weekend in the Devon countryside
Featherdown provided a wonderful opportunity to escape the chaos of everyday life and reconnect with nature, friends and family.
restorative, relaxing and calming
We loved our stay on Jayne and Robert’s farm. We stayed with a 3 and 1 year old. The tent is very spacious and accommodated us all very comfortably. The starter package was helpful and we were given sufficient logs and kindling for our stay. We loved sitting in the hot tub in the evening looking out over the valley, our eldest loved the freedom of running around outside our tent and it was really enlightening learning more about dairy farming. We were very lucky with the weather as it was mostly dry, the evenings were a little chillier so we spent them in the hot tub whilst the children slept. I would definitely take an extra blanket or two during the colder months for night time. Once inside and the wood burner is warm, it is very cosy. We made use of the honesty shop and enjoyed breakfast baguettes and croissants. We used the pizza oven and the bbq as well. Jayne and Robert were very much around for any requests we had. Despite my initial concerns of glamping with young children, this worked out so well and we all had the best time. Thank you for having us!
Billingsmoor Farm was the perfect location for our family fun holiday. Jayne and Robert were superb hosts, the location was great the views amazing. we had a wonderful time.
We had a brilliant time staying at Billingsmoor Farm. The views across the valley from our tent were stunning, and we loved the hot tub and the pizza oven. Jayne, Robert and Alex could not have been more friendly and helpful; nothing was too much trouble. They were wonderful with our toddler - who really loved being on the farm - and happy to answer our many questions about farming. We even saw a calf being born, which was amazing! We would highly recommend a stay in this beautiful location.
Relaxing outdoor holiday with my young family. Kids loved it!
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.
A perfect escape, creating special memories with the family and exploring the beautiful county of Devon
A fantastic stay! Jayne and Robert were so welcoming. The views are beautiful and we loved spending time in the hot tub or dinner on the decking looking over the countryside. We’ve been to a number and this is our new favourite!
Fabulous escape, genuinely secluded, friendly & lots of fun
A wonderful holiday in perfect surroundings
A tranquil get away stay, at this time of uncertainty, for a few days we were away from everything just what we needed
Relaxing and very Welcoming.
Robert and Jayne are amazing hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they went above and beyond what we expected. The location is stunning. Our sixth Featherdown experience and definitely the best one yet!
We had 2 families and loved every minute. The kids enjoyed running around and we loved relaxing with the views. The pre-ordered food (Chili, BBQ, Cheese, Salad, etc) was amazing too!
A brilliant, relaxing break
A wonderful experience - the great outdoors but with a bit of luxury thrown in!
We had a really enjoyable family holiday. We really relaxed and got into the spirit of the site. The hot tub was great and the freedom for the children was fantastic. My husband loved all the fire lighting! Jayne and Robert were fantastic hosts and always willing to help.

We had a great week on Billingsmoor farm. Warm welcomed by Jane, Robert and Toby the dog. Tent was really well equipped, clean and cosy. The honesty shop provided in daily goods needes including fresh eggs and local meat. The surroundings were amazing with dartmoor and exmoor within an hour drive. Thanks for our pleasant stay.
Very relaxing holiday - Jayne and Robert made us feel very much at home
Amazing setting, a lovely relaxing break, we thoroughly loved it and Jayne and Robert very helpful and informative about the local area .

Very peaceful and happy
Brilliant holiday! Amazing location and the best hosts! A great experience for all of the family. We all learnt a thing or two about Organic farming which was a real bonus. The best Featherdown ever!
Jayne and Robert made us feel so very welcome. Great experience for the children and relaxing for the grown ups.
A great way to unwind from drain of daily life in a different setting.
Very refreshing getting back to basics!!
Amazing, wonderful, a superb place to stay. Jayne and robert were brilliant hosts. The cows were also wow, my daughters loved spending time with them.
Exciting, fun, relaxing with beautiful views and lots to do. Jayne and Robert were very friendly and nothing was too mich trouble.
Really enjoyed this holiday. The farm tour, pizza's from the pizza oven, watching calves being born, playing in the woods and reading by candlelight. An absolutely wonderful experience.
An amazing back to basics experience
A lovely experience for the family
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.
