Welcome to Dunsdon Farm

The Home of Quarry Pods
Dunsdon Farm is a 54 acre farm situated in open countryside adjoining the Dunsdon National Nature Reserve, designated as a SSSI, as a rare and protected culm grassland area.

The main farmhouse dates from the late Victorian period and is set within an historic farm courtyard setting, with some of the buildings dating from the Medieval period. The land surrounding the farm has been farmed for many hundreds (possibly thousands) of years, with the farm being recorded in the Doomsday Book.

We stayed in The Hive camping pod which was beautiful. Truly relaxing just enjoying the farm and countryside, no need to leave the farm . My six year old nephew made friends and played happily in the woodland area, his high lights were pond dipping in the wildlife pond down in the woodland reserve. He played until darkness . Paul & Kirstie have created a wonderful wildlife friendly camping experience.

Magical, one of the best glamping weekends away I have had. Jane Higham

The farm is managed under an HLS Agreement (Higher Level Stewardship) in conjunction with Natural England.

As the farm sits within the rare Culm Grasslands of North Devon, in 2006 it was chosen as a demonstration site to recreate a Culm grass pasture and to help understand and further the possibilities of re-establishing Culm grasslands to areas now devoid. This project was managed in association with The Devon Wildlife Trust and will be managed for the next 10 years under their guidance.

In 2005, 23 acres was planted under the English Woodland Grants Scheme, with 23,000 mixed native trees to establish a new wooded area for the farm.
