Woodah FarmWoodah Farm

Woodah Farm is a developing rural skills and conservation centre that sits in a stunning location, on the very edge of Dartmoor in the Teign Valley. It offers two meeting rooms, with kitchen facilities, that are available for hire.

The old farmhouse and its beautifully renovated barns is the base for DWT’s South Devon Reserves team and supports a now well-established programme of volunteer development. Woodah hosts conservation training activities and is used by a range of local conservation and community groups, such as Orchard Link, the Devon Rural Skills Trust, the Devon Hedge Group, to name but a few.

Woodah also provides a fantastic base for DWT’s work with schools. Facilities for hire include:

  • A meeting room, accommodating a maximum of 12, with Wi-Fi and kitchen in the farm house.
  • The Cattle Barn - a beautiful wood framed building with kitchen facilities, wood burning stove, Wi-Fi and PowerPoint projector that can accommodate up to 30 people.
  • The Linhay Barn, a mucky classroom that can be used for practical workshops or as a break out space on a fine day!

Parking is limited and facilities are rustic and in keeping with the rural, unspoiled nature of the site. We ask visitors to car share wherever possible.

Woodah Farm was a gift to the Trust from Derrick Taylor, former Hon Treasurer at DWT. The Cattle Barn and Linhay Barn were developed with a generous legacy from local Dartmoor resident and wildlife lover, Phoebe Wortley-Talbot and funding from the Dartmoor Sustainable Development Fund. These gifts have allowed us to train hundreds of conservation volunteers and engage thousands of people with our work.
