We can thoroughly recommend this fabulous farmhouse setting. The property has been imaginatively restored to a very high quality. Once you walk in the door, a relaxed feeling descends on you. We all slept like babies. Breakfast was delicious and served fresh and tasty using quality products. What a treat! We tried the woodland walk and got to see some... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and would certainly repeat the experience. The hosts were very helpful and went out of their way to give us a great stay. The farm walks were especially beautiful. A visit to the Stags Head at South Molton for dinner is a must.

The family stayed here 3 nights. Beautiful quiet location off the road, excellent breakfast, clean, nice room, and friendly hosts. North Devon is a great place to visit (wish I lived there)! The bed & breakfast is a working farm also and (as mentioned) is secluded off the road and is a safe place for the kids to roam about.

Very friendly owners who came out to meet us as we arrived, we were tired walkers. The breakfast was amazing, home made compotes and excellent cooked breakfast. Pub not in walking distance so owner drove us down. This is the only reason I have not given it 5 stars as this can be tricky if you don't have a car... More

We had a wonderful time at Huxtable Farms. The setting is lovely and the hosts are very welcoming. Our children (both under 5) LOVED it! Thank you for your great hospitality. I wish I was eating one of those delicious scones right now!

This gorgeous farm house was warm and cosy. We saw baby lambs, hand fed the sheep, watched chicks hatch and collected eggs ! I cannot recommend this beautiful place strong enough. Jackie is so welcoming and kind and will make you feel like you are staying at your moms !
