Nethercott House is a huge Victorian manor house, with beautiful grounds and amazing views towards Dartmoor. Situated just outside the village of Iddesleigh, close to the River Torridge, it is twenty minutes north of Okehampton.
The land surrounding Nethercott House is farmed in partnership with brothers Graham and David Ward, a relationship that goes back to the very earliest days of the Charity when the family partnership of Graham and David and their father John Ward helped Clare and Michael Morpurgo to start Farms for City Children in 1976. Graham has a herd of organic milking Friesians, while David farms sheep and a beef herd. The children also help look after donkeys and a wide range of poultry. There is a large walled kitchen garden where the children help grow the vegetables they eat with their meals.
