A real farming family. Linda and Richard have run Stickwick for guests for over 45 years and are involved with many local and community events, keeping the village alive. The farm has been in the family for over 100 years, and every generation has added to the character and history of this special property.  Now joined by daughter Alison and her family, Stickwick continues to be a real home from home with real people to talk to.

Owner recommendations

  • Hop in the car for 20 minutes and arrive at England’s highest man-made waterfall and lakes at Canonteign Falls

  • Take a nice walk to the village pub at Palk Arms which is both children and pet friendly.

  • Climb Haytor rocks and see the roaming ponies in the rugged, wild landscape of Dartmoor, only a 15 minute drive away.

  • Spend the day at Teignmouth beach and check out the amusement pier when you’re taking a break from the sun.

  • If you love this farm then why not visit another one? Pennywell has loads of animals, activities and fun rides and it is just half an hour's drive away.
