Craneham Farm Holidays


Welcome to Craneham Farm, this 160 acre slice of glorious old Devon has been cared for by the Bond family for over 120 years. The farm is to be found nestled in an unspoilt part of North Devon, 1½ miles from the village of Buckland Brewer.


We have three properties available to let sleeping between 2 and 7 people – to a maximum capacity of 16 at any one time.


Wi-Fi internet access is available in all the cottages.


TV in all bedrooms - which seems to help when getting children to go to bed!

  • Dogs and children are welcome. Preferably well behaved on both accounts!

  • Very friendly resident owners. We are on hand and happy to help if you wish or leave you to your own devices.

  • Relax in the secluded peace and quiet of the farm.

  • Explore the 15 acres of tranquil ancient woodland – marvel at how well Mother Nature reclaims where others have walked before you. Follow the paths or make your own way through unchartered territory.

  • Walk along the mile of river frontage.

  • Wildlife previously sighted include Kingfishers, Herons, Buzzards, Muntjac Deer, Roe Deer, Foxes, Hares, Badgers, Rabbits, Hedgehogs, Pheasants, Partridges, Fish, Frogs, Canada Geese, Jay, Wagtails, Snipe, Barn Owls, Tawny Owls, Woodcock, Sparrowhawks, Squirrels, Sika Deer and Kestrels.

Farming activities at Craneham.


  • The 120 strong herd of dairy cows are milked twice a day, every day – so you can see the milking first hand if you want.

  • Year round calving so there is always a chance of seeing a newborn calf whilst you are here.

  • An opportunity to learn a little about where your food comes from and why it is important to support the British farming community.

  • Some of our visitors enjoy stroking the friendly cows – this is a free of charge optional extra.

  • Help feed the calves and see how much they grow in a week.

  • Watch the farming seasons unfold.
