Farm Tours at West Ilkerton Farm

Key Contact Information



Explore our traditional Exmoor hill farm with us, the farmers, and see the animals at close quarters from the comfort and safety of a purpose-built tractor-drawn trailer with padded seats.

Spectacular, ever-changing views and the chance to see a variety of wildlife, from birds and butterflies to mammals like foxes and red deer.

Devon cattle, Exmoor horn sheep and Exmoor ponies have been kept here for generations, and we are passionate about conserving these local breeds.

See the farm that inspired the Katy’s Exmoor books, written by Victoria and illustrated by Chris. Visiting our Exmoor ponies is the highlight of the tour for many people.

There are opportunities to leave the trailer for short, easy walks to see things of interest along the way, but if you prefer you can stay on the trailer for the whole trip. There are two steps onto the trailer, with a hand rail to hold onto.

We offer farm tours from mid-April until mid-October.

Our tours during 2022 will be exclusive for each booking.

We can take up to 12 adults at a time (or up to 18 if most of the people in the party are children).

Prices: First adult £40. Additional adults £12 each. Children 3 – 15 years old £6 each. Babies under 2 years old FREE.

Our prices include VAT, and we can provide a VAT receipt. Groups welcome. Please contact us with your requirements. Special picnic trips can be arranged.
