“Enjoyable Feb half term break”
Reviewed 19 April 2018 for a stay in February 2018

The cottages are on a traditional working farm. The week we were there was freezing and wet, but Parlour cottage had plenty of heating options, and was cosy and well equipped. The log burner was great with a ready supply of logs from the farm at low cost. The games room was basic and the pool table had seen better days, but still kept the kids occupied. The pool was a good size and heated, we used it everyday but the weather was freezing so the pool room was chilly and took abit of bravery to get in, it would definitely be nicer in warmer months. The farm was in a rural setting, wonderful views and could access the Tarka trail on a path from the farm, which was pretty much a stream due to the heavy rain. Accessing the parking and farm was down a narrow lane/track but there were passing points, and we only met another vehicle oncoming once (a farm vehicle which backed up for us). The hosts were friendly and left us to ourselves after the introduction on first day. We had a friendly chat whilst taking the kids to see their sheep. There was plenty to do in the local area travelling about 40 mins each way in the car. The kids liked Big Sheep particularly.

“Great Location for children and adults a like”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed in The Parlour one of four cottages on this lovely farm. The cottage was spotlessly clean and comfortably slept eight. It had a well equipped kitchen and comfortable living room. There was a little welcome gift in the form of scones, jam and clotted cream which was a lovely touch. The location was suitably rural for complete quite and relaxation but is situated just of the A386 making it very easy to access different locations in both Devon and just across the county boarders into Cornwall. We had three young children with us (two seven year olds and a four year old) they were able to play freely and safely in the farm gardens, watch sheep being moved, were introduced to the sheep dog, played tennis on the tennis courts, enjoyed the games room and indoor swimming pool. This meant that the children were well catered for when we were not out visiting some of the fabulous castles, houses and parks that this part of Devon/Cornwall provides. Another benefit was that the farm had a small, if somewhat rocky, path directly on to the Tarka Trail which is great for walkers.
We had a lovely holiday and would definitely book here again
