Welcome to Westyard Farm

Our smallholding farm is set on 22 acres in Devon's beautiful rugged and rural countryside. Nestled into the landscape at approximately 550 feet above sea level, Westyard Farm sits between Devon's two major National Parks, Dartmoor and Exmoor. Although remote, we have easy access to the major trunk roads, M5 and A30 in the south and also the North Devon Link road.
