Activity Kit

Holidays are can be educational as well as times of great fun and joy 

Activity Kit

We have available kits for you to borrow  on a daily basis, that have been designed for children to use (under adult supervision) in fossil hunting, bat listening and bug finding. There are also recording journals for birds and butterflies.   Follow the clues of the Elf trail,  stamp the sheet and when you have collected 10 collect your prize!

Activity Kit Activity Kit Activity Kit Baby Robins

Our starry skies are amazing as there is no light pollution.

We also allow guests to watch a calving. Most of the time this happens out in the fields when no one is there watching, however, if we feel that a cow may need assistance we will keep her in so that we can keep a better eye on her and assist if necessary. If you would like to witness this please ask. You will be able to observe and take photos from a safe distance.

*We just ask for a £5 donation to this years charity “Devon Freewheelers” for the use of these kits for a day. Please book them online when booking your holiday – they are in the extras section. Devon Freewheelers are a voluntary organisation, based in Honiton, that transport blood and organs between the Devon hospitals as an out of hours service.

 

Godform Farm is an Ideal Place to Stay and Location for Cyclists and Walkers 

Walking Holidays in Devon Cycling Holidays in Devon Lovely Country Walks Lovely Devon Country Walks

The farm is situated in an area that is ideal for either the cyclist or walker. Just 10 miles from the South West Coastal Path or 1 mile from Buzzard 52 cycle route. There are circular walks/rides starting from the farm taking you around the country lanes of 1, 2 or 5 miles passing through other villages and hamlets.  Come in the autumn to experience quieter lanes and glorious colour changes of trees and scenery.  Spring time you will see baby animals in the fields, lots of primroses in the hedgerows and wild daffodils.
