The Sweetlands family have been farming in Farway for 60 years.
Initially Pamela and Gerald sold their home produced beef and pork locally but like many farmers they have had to diversify and in 2000, drawing on Pamela’s catering experience, they started to produce hand made (either by Pamela, Gerald or their staff) pasties and pies (including vegetarian options) for sale at local farmers markets and country shows.
Since then Sweetlands range has expanded beyond pasties and pies to cater for all occassions.
The meat used in their recipes is non-GM and either home-produced or locally sourced with a preference to Organic produce.
Boveys Down Farm has all your camping facilities catered for; our fully insured site offers caravan, motorhome and tent pitches with fees starting from only £8 per night.
You can find all the information you may need below including our latest Price List and Online Booking Sheet.
There is a small area of woodland available for tent pitches as well as a small rentable on-site caravan affectionately known as ‘Janet’s Caravan’ which is available for booking. Please ask for further details.
The farm is only a couple of miles from The Hare and Hounds, a bustling, rural pub famous for its carveries. The nearby towns of Honiton, Seaton and Sidmouth also have a wide selection of local watering holes
Honiton Golf Club is an 18 hole course about 2 miles from the camp site and offers reasonable green fees, or you could try the public golf course: Otter Valley Golf Centre.
The seaside town of Lyme Regis offers a selection of charter fishing excursions, or rent your own boat at Beer!
The historic market town of Honiton is only 10 minutes away by car and has two markets a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays. We are also only half an hour from the county capital of Exeter (train service available from Honiton).
WALKING AND CYCLING
Being very near the ‘Jurassic Coast’ there are is a whole scope of coastal walks and inland cycling routes; the nearest being only a stone’s throw from our camp site (see below).
We are also less than a mile from the East Devon Way, a very popular and well-known local excursion.
Walks through the country lanes and bridleways are to be enjoyed, but best of all is the farm walk and talk given by Gerald (usually on Sundays) as he strolls around to see the stock, spotting what nature has to offer, varying with the seasons.
