Come and enjoy the quiet countryside

Langaton is a working family farm situated on the Cornwall/Devon border with beef cattle, sheep and a small suckler herd. Our Grandfather originally was the Blacksmith in the local Village of Whitstone and following the decline in horsepower came to farm at Langaton over 70 years ago. The family have farmed here ever since and our daughters are the 4th generation of the Short family to live at Langaton.

The remains of the Bude Canal route runs through the farm. The Bude Canal was constructed in 1819, its purpose was primarily to carry sea sand inland from Bude to use as fertilizer on the farmland.

There is an abundance of wildlife around the farm including rabbits, ducks, moorhens, badgers and deer. The trees are covered with lichen which is a sign of clean unpolluted air.  Flag irises, marsh marigolds and primroses grow in profusion. Visit in April or May to see the bluebell woods and country lanes filled with spring flowers.

The area around the farm has a special appeal through its local history and the unspoilt beauty of its natural landscape. We are trying to maintain this beauty and the environment by supporting wildlife and using local produce. We have a commitment to energy, efficiency, waste and water conservation.

Meet Peggy our farm dog and Lady our puppy born September 2014. Ralph, Lily and Spot the farm cats. After a hearty breakfast help feed the calves and chicken or get up early and collect your own egg for breakfast.

There is a childrens play area in the garden.
