Fantastic farm cottage. The owner provided a warm welcome and we felt at home straight away. Beautiful setting and ideally located to explore the South Devon Jurassic coast. The cottage has everything you need and is spacious yet cosy. Although we ate out most nights at good quality local pubs, the kitchen facilities are more than adequate for cookRead moreing. The cottage was clean, quiet and warm. There a plenty of local walks with great scenary. The local amenities are good too. Hide

A sublime location, wonderful hosts, delicious homemade cake and tea on arrival. If you want tranquility and nature at its best this is the place for you

The property is isolated in a deep valley which means peace & quiet, wonderful views from the bedrooms & a steep hill to climb both ways.

Reviewed by Colin 22nd September 2018

Very nice location - just beware that the mile long lane to get to the farm is one way with few passing places. "townies" may not appreciate the quiet !

Reviewed by Caroline 15th September 2018

The cottage was down very narrow lanes, but we had no problems. Great to see the cigs going and coming from milking, we really enjoyed ourselves as did our Hearing Dog puppy.

Reviewed by STEWART 25th August 2018

This was a great base for our week-long visit to East Devon. We were welcomed warmly and enjoyed the milk that had been freshly obtained from the cows. There was plenty of room for us (2 adults and 2 children) and the location was perfect.

A picturesque location hidden in valley. You will need to be aware of sharp turn down into farm as no sign. Patch the dog is lovely little collie and cottage was tidy and clean but basic.
