  • We guarantee you the best price

    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Snaptrip member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

    About this property

    On a working farm, with swimming pool, cycling and motor bike Junior Academy, and with miles of footpaths and green lanes to explore.
    Set within 240 acres of unspoilt farmland with footpath

    Heated indoor swimming pool, with private changing room and shower (open all year)

    Fitness room with cross trainer and treadmill

    Off-road biking

    Games room, with full-size American pool table, table tennis and table football. 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.

    "A wonderful quiet break away from it all. Lots to entertain us - pool and games barn were fabulous and made up for lack of internet connection."
    Jenny ‐ 21 Jul 2018
    "Great cottage. Lovely base for touring around country and coast. Fantastic facilities-our 2 sons were lucky enough to have the pool to themselves all week. Billy and Dotsy,the resident dogs, became friends with our 2 dogs. Thanks to Justine and Jim."

    "We had a lovely stay in S19521 and would definitely stay there again. The owners are on site and they are very accommodating and nothing is too much trouble. The only issue we had was the WiFi doesn’t work so it was a bit frustrating at times."
