Eco-accommodation

“I woke to the sound of birdsong and sunshine. My bedroom was in a large barn and was cosy warm to welcome me, a lovely fire burned in the large bright communal room and book shelves laden with books on everything from birds to anthropology made me feel very pleased to have arrived in this idyllic spot”

Eco-accommodation is provided in our Nature Lodge, Yurt and camping in our Earthship and on the farm. The Nature Lodge is an 8 bedroom, 2 bathroom log cabin, with a shared kitchen and living area. Nestled amongst the trees, it provides a secure and relaxing space to return to after a day of learning and activities. Close by is our traditional yurt. It is fully insulated and carpeted with a cosy wood burning stove. Our inspirational Earthship – created in partnership with Schumacher College – sited in our organic market garden is ideal for wild camping, with South Easterly views of the rising sin, an unbeatable morning wake up. All meals are available from local produce (direct from our farm where possible) with special dietary requirements catered for on request.

Living and Learning at Lower Sharpham Farm

Our eco-accommodation is also available to those looking for a rural get-away.  Clean comfortable single bedrooms in our 8 room lodge can be booked individually, or group accommodation can be booked in our traditional yurt. All visitors share 2 bathrooms, a communal kitchen and cosy lounge.  Any number of rooms can be booked, so it is great if you are away with friends wanting your own affordable private single rooms but with the sociable homely feel of the shared spaces. When staying on the farm we welcome your input; feeding the cows, colleting eggs from the hens, or harvesting some vegetables from our market garden. Lower Sharpham Farm provides the ideal base to explore the bohemian town of Totnes, as well as the beautiful south Devon coastline. Rooms can be booked here.

Educational Experiences

Lower Sharpham Farm is a working farm managed for wildlife and biodiversity. We provide a range of both long and short term nature conservation training opportunities on the farm. Some of these opportunities are for experienced wildlife professionals but some are also relevant for keen nature lovers. These might include plant identification and foraging, bird-ringing or woodwork. For dates and details of current opportunities please view our Training Calendar.  Whilst planning your stay, you can also ask your hosts Jack and Katie for information on any events taking place during your time at Lower Sharpham.

Eco-accommodation Testimonials

“We chose to stay in the yurt and it was quite possibly the most luxurious yurt we have ever stayed in! The fire was lit prior to us arriving so it was lovely and warm. The location is one of the most beautiful and peaceful spots in Devon with plenty to do in the surrounding area. I cannot recommend it enough.”

“We couldn’t have asked for a more peaceful and mindfully created space in a breathtakingly beautiful part of Devon, only a 30 min walk away from Totnes.  we are looking forward to our next stay here… and spend more time with the lovely family in this magical setting.”

“Coming from busy London, being in the farm was the best choice for a nice and relaxing weekend. The landscape is amazing and the farm is quiet and cosy. I can definitely recommend to stay in their farm.”
