Country farm holiday cottage in Devon, near Okehampton, Dartmoor National Park
Meadow Sweet is one of 3 holiday cottages, the other two being let by my mum and sister Ruth.
My family have farmed West Hook since 1929 when it was a dairy farm with our milk being taken daily by “Horse & Jingle” a 1 mile journey into Okehampton to be sold.
Things have moved on a little since then and West Hook Farm is now being farmed by the fourth generation of my family. They keep cattle, sheep, ducks, geese and hens, which you are welcome to have a look around at the animals during your stay.
There are always sheep around to see and eggs to be picked up from the hen house and up at the farm Ruth is always happy to show visitors around, you might even be lucky, and see some newly hatched ducklings, but watch out for the geese! they are always around the farm yard, along with the farm cats, and dog.
