BURNICOMBE FARM -THE STORY
Welcome to Burnicombe Farm in Devon! Set in it's own little valley or combe looking out across stunning open countryside, Burnicombe Farm is wild, romantic and timeless and just 10 miles from the thriving cathedral city of Exeter.
A BIT ABOUT THE HISTORY......Up until about 100 years ago the farm would have supported at least 3 families in 3 different dwellings, however as farming practices changed along with the economic viability of traditional farming, families moved away and when the Evans family bought it in 2006 the farm had not been lived in for some time. The land was unproductive and most of the stone buildings, including the farm house were abandoned and derelict. The farm house has now been beautifully restored providing a family home, the land is now back in production and the farm has a viable future. There is still much work to do! The renovation of the farm is a work in progress and will change and progress as time passes. Follow us on Face Book and Twitter as the farm develops.
WEDDINGS & EVENTS.....The Evans have transferred their media experience to events management so the farm now provides a memorable setting for outdoor weddings and celebrations. Couples can take their vows in a charming growing willow arbour and have lots of space alongside for the reception with catering and bar provided. Besides weddings the farm hosts family eco-camps with glamping and fully furnished yurts, school and Brownie camps and other one off community events.
FARMING...... 6500 blueberry bushes have been planted along with several varieties of soft fruit and a new orchard with 30 different traditional apple varieties. Animals are kept only for pleasure and for the family table. We have a small flock of white faced Dartmoor sheep and Dartmoor ponies which are being trained for driving. We grow vegetables and herbs and use as much as we can in our catering.
THE LOCATION..... The farmland is bordered by miles of National Trust land along the beautiful Teign Valley leading all the way to Castle Drogo - the last castle to be built in England. It is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is in one of the most popular holiday regions in the UK with lots to see and do on the coasts, estuaries, river valleys, on Dartmoor, in the many picturesque villages and not to mention in Exeter itself.
