My family and I have just enjoyed a weeks stay at Lower Halsdon Farm's self catering apartment in Exmouth. The location is fantastic, on a farm surrounded by countryside and wonderful exe estuary views. The farm is right on the estuary trail great for walking and cycling, and the farm has 110 acres of land on a rolling landscape. The farm is a National Trust property so we also benefited from their event for children of 50 things to do before you are 11 and 3/4 which my daughter took part in. She hunted for bugs and rolled down a hill, followed by kite flying. Cream teas are served on the property at weekends which I highly recommend !! The apartment itself is inside the farm house, which is a lovely thatched property, it had everything you needed for your stay, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds with fluffy duvets and all bed linen and towels included, including tea towels. (It also had a woodburner which we obviously didn't make use of as its july, but i can imagine a cosy evening with it going !) Kate and Andrew who run the farm (which also has a b&b) are so welcoming and helpful, they even left a little jar of dog biscuits for our dog ;-) the location of the farm is a great base for exploring the local area,with exmouth beaches a short drive away and with trains and boat cruises nearby you can get about very easily if you don't want to drive everywhere. Exeter is a great city which is worth an explore and all the other little places in between are waiting to be discovered, lympstone for example is a cute little place with a lovely pub to eat at. The exe estuary trail is on the doorstep, so if you bring bikes you can literally bike everywhere. Can't recommend it enough, fab little place with lovely people. We really enjoyed our stay here.
