About us

The Colton Family

We are a farming family, David, Justine and our three grown up children – Rowan and William work with us having both attended agricultural collage and completed apprenticeships. Our daughter is presently at university training to be an Occupational Therapist.

David has always farmed on Dartmoor and Justine has a background in administration and hospitality. Most of us live at Tor Royal Farm, along with our working collies, stable cats, daughter Adele’s terrier ‘Gem’ along with Bertie and Penny Peacock.

Tor Royal is a working farm and as such keeps us busy with seasonal jobs such as lambing and shearing the sheep, calving and feeding cattle and harvesting silage for feeding the livestock during the winter months.

Whilst keeping busy Justine and Adele enjoy riding out over the moorland, especially helping gather the cattle and sheep in. Rowan is also a part time Chimney sweep.

We are happy to welcome you to our home and work place and hope that you are comfortable during your stay.
