Worswell Barton really is a hidden gem: 600 acres of National Trust Land on the Peninsula of the river Yealm, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounded by the South West Coastal Footpath.

Worswell Barton was once part of the Revelstoke Estate situated on its 12-mile Carriage way, with wooded hills sloping down to the sea on three sides, great open views towards Dartmoor National Park, Rame Head in Cornwall, and Burgh Island, Bigbury, can be seen from the coast nearby.

The property is steeped in history, with stories from the Spanish Armada, the War years’ bomb craters, Domesday Book, and of course Lord Revelstoke. The Warren Wall, all 2 miles of it, was used to keep rabbits on the cliffs, were they would breed and would be caught to feed the estate workers.

Worswell has been farmed by the Rogers family for over 80 years; the farm is in a peaceful location, with only the sounds of daily farm activities, such as Farmer Phil and his boys going about their work duties, tractors, cattle, sheep and birds in the distance.

We have 5 rooms in the farmhouse for bed & breakfast, and often cater for wedding parties.-visit our Wurzell Weddings Venue  site.

We can offer another 3 rooms in our self catering cottage ‘ with an option for breakfast which is served in the farmhouse, by prior arrangement, maximum of 6 people. Please call for further information 01752 872977, or click here to check rooms availability.

Higher Shippen Cottage is a self-catering unit, which sleeps 6 comfortably but can accommodate another 2 guests. The cottage is available weekly Friday to Friday, or short breaks Friday to Monday, or Monday to Friday.

We are very flexible with dates from March to May  so please do call. 01752 872977.

Our family have been farming here at Worswell Barton for over 85 years. It has seen many changes through those years, as dairy farm up to 1976, and now a mixed farm with, Cattle, Sheep, Chickens, and Vegetables  which we sell on our little roadside stall in the villages of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers, part of our Wurzell Farm Fresh Veggies.                                     We grow a variety of crops, such as Oil Seed Rape, Wheat, Barley, Potatoes. Conservation is taken very seriously here at Worswell, we help look after the birds, bees, flora and forna, with Margins around our fields, and over winter stubles.

Our suckler cow herd of South Devons and Charollais are often kept on the cliffs with their young calves, helping with the good husbandry and conservation of the cliff ground, along with a flock of sheep, which we lamb in February / March /April.

We have taken on many different projects over the years along with the National Trust to Keep Worswell Barton as traditional as possible.

One project was to re-roof the property, and with a grant, put solar panels in to supply our hot water.

We also save our rainwater, in large tanks for the farm to use, whether to feed the cattle and sheep during the winter, or for Feeding crops during a dry period.

The latest project is to repair the Warren Wall, which, in places, has fallen down. To date, we have managed to repair one section, using local labour and materials. This project will continue over a number of years aided by donations and HLS grant. The National trust are great supporters in helping us achieve our goals, here at Worswell Barton
