Stay with us in our beautiful, tranquil Devon valley

Thorne Farm estate is made up of two farms, Thorne Farm and Wheatlands Farm and extends to 250 acres. Thorne Farm was historically part of Oxford’s Balliol College. There is evidence that Robert Bradford (for Balliol College) leased the land to Thomas Wright in 1699, with 6 cattle, 30 sheep, orchards, woods for timber, arable and grassland and the house which was thatched needed much attention!

Thorne Farm was then sold privately and renamed Thorn Farm in 1921. The Luxton family were granted the lease and four generations of their family went on to farm the land until it was sold to us in 2012.

Today Thorne Farm and its outbuildings have been beautifully renovated and we are pleased to be able to offer a range of accomodation including holiday cottages and single rooms within the West Wing of the farmhouse.

Lovely weekend stay, beautiful location & well thought-out accommodation, everything you need & very comfortable beds. We have a disabled child & it was lovely that it was so spacious for him to safely get around. Everyone super friendly.

Well-equipped kitchen, ample space to relax, fabulous beds and loved watching the horses on exercise in the morning and resting in their fields in the afternoon.

You couldn’t pick or find a more idyllic spot – beautiful, peaceful countryside with wonderful walks, feeling of being a little remote but only 10 minutes to some great Devonshire pubs… magnificent place, attentive hosts & Nigel’s career fascinating, special thanks to Katherine we are all looking forward to returning for a longer visit…

Thorne Farm is easily accessed from the A361 North Devon Link Road, 10 minutes from Tiverton and the Tiverton Parkway mainline railway station – only 2 hours from London!

Lovely property in a beautiful location, owner & staff both friendly & helpful. Our visiting grandchildren loved the lake walk, horses, chickens & children’s play area.

Clean and spacious, location idyllic with beautiful unpolluted nights sky with the biggest shooting star I have ever seen with tail time of 3 seconds! Beautiful wildlife, bats in the evening & even a barn owl.
