Our Shepherd hut can sleep 2 adults and 1 child, the bed for the child is 5ft long by 2ft wide. We supply all bedding, you only need to bring your own towels. We do allow dogs, under the understanding that we are a working farm, with livestock in all the surrounding fields and so dogs must be kept on a lead or under close control at all times and very carefully cleaned up after (dogs carry a parasite that can cause sheep to abort their lambs).  Please select on the extras list if you're bringing a dog with you. 
There is room in the shepherd hut garden to pitch a tent for older children or for other family members.  We often have a family camping with grandparents staying in the hut.  Please phone us to arrange this or book the shepherd hut and a camping pitch and explain when we send an email with arrival instructions. 
The Shepherd hut has fantastic views of the Wistlandpound Reservoir and the surrounding countryside.   It has it's own private garden area with gated access to a stream and it's own fire pit.

There is also a fridge freezer, which you are welcome to use (shared) also in the toilet block are electric points for charging phones, hair driers etc, the shepherd hut is off grid, it has solar lights, running water and a gas hob as well as a wood burning stove to keep you warm on chilly nights

About Westland Farm

How often do you get to stay in a hand-built home? At Westland Farm you can enjoy camping or glamping whilst feeling like you’re part of a working farm.
Set amidst the lush, rolling countryside of North Devon, on the edge of Exmoor National Park and close to some truly spectacular beaches, ancient market towns and country pubs, Westland Farm is a little piece of heaven we wish to share with you. We are a small friendly site, and wish to keep it that way.  We allow plenty of space for camping, no crowded fields even at the busiest times and some beautiful views of the countryside.  We welcome families who we love to show our animals to, explain how they are kept and welcome help with feeding time.  During the lambing season, which we plan around the Easter Holidays, guests are welcome in the lambing shed to watch and even help if they wish, there are often tame lambs to bottle feed and the more hands on types have even helped to bring new lambs into the world.  We are responsible for several young people who now have an ambition to become farmers, after helping in the lambing shed during their holiday here.
