What is it?
Dolish Farmhouse in Devon is a beautifully restored eco-friendly substantial former working farmhouse & traditional barns set in 4 acres of its own gardens and land with both serviced and self-contained accommodation.
We offer you a warm welcome, lovely accommodation and your choice of a terrific breakfast using the best of our local Devon produce.
Nestling in the magnificent unspoilt tranquil village of Luppitt on the edge of the Blackdown Hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet just 10 minutes from the Devon market town of Honiton, we count ourselves very fortunate at Dolish. Here time seems to stand still. It’s a place to escape life’s worries where you can truly reconnect with nature, refresh your mind and body and renew your energy.
A rich variety of wildlife and flora enjoys this secret corner of Devon with us. Deer, badgers, squirrels & foxes roam the hillsides of the valley. In Spring there are drifts of bluebells.
Hedgerows are full of wildflowers. Swallows nest in the barns while lambs gambol in the fields. Rooks wheel above tall ashes and oaks.
Narrow lanes meander through the undulating landscape. Hilltops reveal glorious views over a patchwork of green, then lanes dive into valleys of ancient woodland with maybe a stream or a ford. There are traditional livestock farmsteads. Fields are small and hedgerows are high. These valuable habitats co-exist with working rural communities anxious to do their bit to protect this fragile environment.
Take time for a little walk out and about to explore this rich area for yourself ..it’s a delight to really smell the new mown hay, see the bumblebees in the grass or to stop by a field gate and listen to the contented cattle munching. These sensory treats so easily pass us by un-noticed in our busy lives.
What to do
There are endless activities in the area ranging from walking, skydiving, sea fishing, adventure parks, 4 x 4 courses, to visiting country houses,nature reserves, observatory, donkey sanctuary or try your hand at hunting for fossils on the Jurassic Coast.
