Mary and Julian Courtier will give you a warm welcome to their traditional working farmhouse in the Dartmoor National Park.
Mary, Julian and family would love for you to bring your wellies and come and watch the milking. Afternoon milking is from 4pm and there is a viewing gallery for you to watch this most amazing procedure. You then can walk the cows out into their pasture. A great way to see and learn about where you milk comes from.
Thank you Mary
The 16th Century stone farmhouse B & B on Dartmoor near Okehampton, providing excellent bed and breakfast accommodations in the charming hamlet of Gooseford, nestling under the tors of North Dartmoor. It is quiet and rural, yet within 5 minutes of the A30 and only twenty minutes from the historic cathedral city of Exeter.
The house itself is full of traditional features and a warm log fire burns in the open stone fireplace of the residents’ lounge.
There are exposed beams, inset windows and wonderful views over the moor.
On arrival Mary or a member of the Courtier family will greet you with a cup of tea or coffee and a homemade biscuit or cake, we also make our own bread. The tea will be served either by the log burner in the guest sitting room or outside on the garden furniture.
Mary will cook your full English breakfast from their farm produce and on request she will provide a home-cooked dinner for you from delicious, fresh ingredients from the farm and garden. (advance booking required).
She bakes her own bread, makes all the puddings and Julian ensures there is a supply of fresh meat available from the farm.
Gooseford Farm is very much a working farm based on the edge of Dartmoor, which The Courtier Family hope you will explore both. But I do ask you to remove your outside shoes before going upstairs into the bedroom. I do provide a basket of slippers or please bring your own. No offence is intended.
