Great Garlandhayes Farm is a Grade II listed farm high up on the ridge of the Culm Valley in Devon. The first recorded inhabitation of the site is in the fourteenth century with a simple stone cottage, still standing but now incorporated into the overall expansion of the farmhouse. The building has traces of the 16th and 17th centuries. A 40-foot flint lined well originally outside the house and now in the kitchen follows a final phase of expansion in the late nineteenth century. Since then the body of the house has remained largely unchanged.

Anne and Graham Langford took over the farm in 1995 and gradually changed the activities there from a mixed dairy, sheep and pig unit to a technically advanced sheep breeding farm. The first Poll Dorsets were introduced in 2002. The flock has increased to more than 150 ewes and a select band of Type 1, very high index rams and now is associated with 110 acres with the farm and a further 80 acres of winter grass keep.
