Myself, husband, parents and two children 2 dogs had a lovely week break. The grounds are well kept and views are lovely. Our cottage was immaculately clean. All of the amenities ie plates cooking pots cutlery etc were ample and beautifully clean, my only issue was the bed in the upstairs room (grain cottage/granary) is quite tired, and the sofa alRead moreso tired, but overall I would definately recommend a stay here. My little girl loved feeding the animals. Hide

A nice, roomy barn conversion that feels very spacious due to the high ceilings. But still nice and warm thanks to the underfloor heating and wood burner. Nice to have a decent sized freezer rather than just a small ice one! The gated courtyard was excellent for our dogs and the table and chairs were used on several sunny days. Close to Ilfracombe Read more(10 mins). A shame all the farm animal feedings had stopped due to Covid, but still nice to be on a working farm, complete with donkeys and chickens! Hide

A lovely cottage on a working farm in a lovely part of the West Country, with lots of places to visit and walks to do within a short drive. The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. A wood burning stove was very welcome as October more chilly. The owners were very welcoming and very relaxed. We will be returning.
