Dartmoor and Devon are two areas you have to see if you want to see true British countryside.
We will whisk you away to a beautiful private farm in North Devon near the famous village of Woolacombe, and into stunning rural land you will not find in your tourist book and experience a true farming skill. David our local shepherd farms right to the cliff edges and down to the sea. His farm is truly one of the best locations in the World, and to our knowledge we have not seen a better place for a sheepdog demonstration!
We have exclusive access to David’s farm and his dogs, and you will learn from one of the World’s best. You will see the inspiring partnership between man and working dog, including novices right up to the national winning dogs. Throughout the experience you will be engaging with the shepherd and learning this fascinating skill, and this thrilling experience will all take place with breath-taking scenery as the backdrop. For those not so active we can stay in the farm but for those wanting to see something you’ll never forget we will hike to the top of the farm and watch David work the dogs and sheep across the steep mountains. He will give a demonstration of their amazing work on the cliff tops, through the rough terrain and working far into the distance. You will truly be amazed!
After a fun morning, the afternoon is ours to tailor a day to you which could see us exploring the wonderful city of Plymouth; the location where the Mayflower left our shores. Or, we will take in the unknown Dartmoor National Park one of the great wilderness areas of England, which is littered with pretty villages and breath-taking scenery. Or, take in the wonderful villages of Clovelly and Ilfracombe in North Devon which have been relatively unchanged for centuries. Dartmoor and Devon plus a sheepdog demo is a day to remember for all!
Cornwall and Devon is truly a very special place, from the historic sites we saw like the Mayflower launch, King Arthur’s Castle, Rick Stein’s seafood restaurant, the famous scenes where Poldark was shot and even a sheepdog demonstration on the cliffs, this was one of my favourite vacations ever. Eddie and his team put together and delivered 5 days I will never forget!
