Where are we located?
You can find Midleydown on our 260 acre farm in the small village of Plymtree in the heart of East Devon, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We are approximately 10 minutes from junction 28 of the M5, near to the Market town of Cullompton and Honiton – Just 30 minutes drive to the Cathedral City of Exeter and the beautiful coastline of the Jurassic Coast. Dartmoor and Exmoor are also in easy reach.
Plymtree Community Shop
Midleydown is only a short 10 minute stroll away from the community-run village shop and local Devonshire pub in the vibrant village of Plymtree.
Visit the fantastic, well stocked village shop, with shelves stacked full of local produce, wine supplied by Plymtree’s own wine merchant and cider made in the village, perfect for those sunset evenings on the veranda or in the hot tub! Freshly baked warm croissants are available at the weekends for those lazy, indulgent mornings.
A visit to Susie and Alan at The Blacksmiths Arms is a must! They will welcome you at their family friendly, local pub with beer garden. Takeaways available Tuesday-Saturday 5:30-6:30pm. Other times maybe possible depending on restaurant bookings. See their website for further information and food menus. Please note booking is required.
The Blacksmiths Arms
“Plymtree is not on a road to anywhere; if someone comes here it is by intention or because they are lost. But if the village is isolated, the villagers could not be less so. What makes Plymtree so special is the welcoming people who live here, some of them parishioners since birth. Since its beginnings as a Saxon manor, Plymtree has always been based on farming and, surrounded by lush, peaceful countryside, this has remained largely unchanged – rather like the experience of coming here, for Plymtree demonstrates the traditional co-operative nature of English village life at its best.”
– Quoted from ‘The Book of Plymtree’
Each tent has a fully fitted kitchen with an oven in a wood burning stove, a picnic seated area, a gas BBQ and your own deck with dining furniture, perfect for Al fresco dining. For those who don’t fancy cooking there is several local pubs, such as, The Blacksmiths Arms, The Merry Harriers and The Drewe Arms.
