'Beautifully hidden in Devon'

Parsonage Farm has been farmed by the same family for nearly 100 years and is the farm around which the book War Horse by Michael Morpurgo was set, along with the parish of Iddesleigh.

It was also once home to Revd John ‘Jack’ Russell, first breeder of the terriers to which he gives his name.

This beautiful hidden part of Devon boasts stunning scenery of rolling hills and valleys with Dartmoor as its magnificent backdrop.

Come and explore War Horse Valley – its farming history, its people and its Wartime stories and of course the place where the story of Joey and Albert was born.
