Colehayes Park

  Colehayes is believed to be the largest self-caterining establishment in the UK...

Welcome to Colehayes Park on the very edge of Dartmoor in Devon, UK. We are a field studies centre based in a Grade II Listed Georgian mansion about two miles west of Bovey Tracey.

Colehayes Park has proved to be an exceptionally popular location for field study work with many schools and universities returning year after year.

But Colehayes is not just about the natural environment. The climate here is mild, sometimes damp, but generally drier than much of the moor to the west.

The prevailing wind is from the west which tends to bring warm moist air from the Atlantic Ocean in winter; being in the lee of the moor we get less rain than many places nearby.

 So Colehayes is a pleasant place to relax and to enjoy good clean fresh Devon air with few extremes of weather.The grounds are exceptional and we have one of the country's finest specimen of Cork Oak.

Present owners, Bill & Rebecca Brooks are carrying out extensive works on the stream and ponds.
