It is noticeable that the only restriction placed on the permission is one preventing them from being principal residences but with no limit of length of occupation. Planning reference: 21/02319/FUL dated 7th October 2022 for the erection of five holiday lodges and associated parking, reception/store and all-terrain vehicle store.

Holmingham Farm is located in a particularly attractive part of the Exe Valley, lying on a bend of the river between Bampton and Tiverton. The area is known for its stunning landscape with a huge variety of flora and fauna. It is at Holmingam Farm that the Exe is joined by one of its tributaries, the River Batherm. The River Exe is the main salmon river in the west country and one of the most prolific salmon rivers in England.

A local pub lies on the boundary of the farm and the market town of Bampton is only about 1.5 miles away offering a range of local shops, public houses, doctor’s surgery and primary school.

Tiverton lies approximately 6 miles to the south offering a wider range of social, scholastic and shopping facilities including the renowned Blundell’s School.

The cathedral city of Exeter is approximately 21 miles to the west, whilst J27 offers convenient access from the north Devon link road to the M5 motorway.

There are regular train services to London Paddington from Tiverton Parkway railway station which is approximately 12 miles from the holding. Bristol and Exeter airports are within easy reach providing regular shuttle connections to major airports in the country and abroad.

In addition to the fishing, the area is renowned for a range of equestrian and sporting activities. Areas of the woodland have been used for simulated game days.
