“Warm welcome to Devon”
Reviewed 16 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

It was our first trip to Devon for my husband, myself and our 2 children, ages 11 and 14. We found Godford Farm through the Farm Stay UK website and stayed in Owl Cottage were we received a very warm welcome from the Lawrence Family onto their family farm. The cottage was beautiful, very well equipped, and the welcome basket of locally produced food was greatly appreciated. The kids enjoyed the table tennis and pool table in the play farm. The cottage was a great base to tour Devon. We particularly enjoyed Babbacombe and Sidmouth, with the highlight being our day in Longleat Safari Park, which was just over an hour 20 mins away.

Sally and Richard were the perfect hosts and we felt that we had arrived as guests but left as friends. We would love to return again.

“A Little Ripper”
Reviewed 20 February 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This cottage, Owl Hayes at Godford Farm, met all our needs and exceeded our expectation. After travelling for nearly 40 hours from outback Australia to visit our grandchildren in Honiton for Christmas, it was priceless to walk through the front door and find this lovely cottage completed decorated for Christmas including a Christmas Tree. It is the thoughtful and accommodating measures taken by Sally and Richard that make Godford Farm a great place to stay. Thank you.

“A warm welcome awaits”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A very warm welcome from Sally Lawrence and her family who also run the farm. Watch the calves being fed and the cows milked. A compact cottage with everything you'll need (including loo roll and dishwasher powder!). We took our 2 year old who loved the pedal cars, slide, play house complete with its own kitchen but most of all the animals. Extremely good value for money and don't forget to order Sally's delicious cooked breakfasts.

“FANTASTIC”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We were coming home to visit family after 15 years and wanted our own accommodations. When we opened the door, it was like walking into a story book. Everything was perfect and Sally made sure that we had everything we needed. The views and the tranquility of the farm were wonderful. We had forgotten how beautiful Devon was, after coming from California, this was a much needed retreat. Sally made us feel as if we were part of the family, and the welcome basket was great, good bacon, bread, eggs, everything we needed for a good old English breakfast, and more. We wish we had extended our stay, we will return again. Thank you, Sally and Richard for your kindness.

“Cosy comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Me, my husband and one or both of my grown up daughters sleeping over at times we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Otter Holt. The warm welcome we received on arrival, the the thoughtful welcome groceries , the concern that we were warm enough all added to our enjoyment of the well equipped, beautifully appointed cottage. With the town of Honiton only 5 minutes away, the beaches of Sidnouth and Exmouth within easy reach and the city of Exeter 30 minutes away Otter Holt provided us with an excellent base for the week.
