HISTORY OF HOMER

Welcome to Homer Farm and Homer Barn collectively known as Homer. Homer dates back to 1721. There has been a dwelling on this site since 1086 documented in the Domesday Book. Homer is set within 16 acres of beautiful countryside on the edge of the village of Mary Tavy. As this is the oldest part of Mary Tavy it is also in a designated Conservation Area and within Dartmoor National Park. Cholwell Brook gurgles and weaves its way through the property and half a mile on it joins the River Tavy. The brook provides the tranquil sound of running water as well as an amazing backdrop to your morning coffee or evening glass of wine.

The pictures below document the hard work that Alan and Alison have put in over the years to make Homer what it is today.
