The Dairy (sleeps 4 to 6 + cot)
THE DAIRY is a detached 5* cottage directly overlooking beautiful rolling Devon countryside with 2 large super-king bedrooms, both with immaculate en-suite facilities. If required, one of the bedrooms can be configured as 2 or 3 single beds and the lounge also has a good quality settee-bed if needed. (Please let us know your preference when you book).
As the name suggests, the Dairy has been converted and now represents a luxurious and characterful holiday destination for our clients within the grounds of the 17th century Redyeates Farm. The Dairy is a certain place for a relaxing time and has plenty to keep the children amused within our 3 acre gardens including our own recently resurfaced all-weather tennis court, table tennis, football, ultra-safe quality trampoline (no springs) and fantastic children's climbing frame.
The accommodation is all ground level so it is easy if there are any mobility issues or there are any concerns regarding children and stairs. One of the bedrooms has a walk-in shower.
Redyeates Farm is in mid-Devon in one of the best locations for getting to either the north or south coastline and is just 12 miles from either of the National Parks at Exmoor and Dartmoor. Locally there are some very good pubs and restaurants. Taxis and babysitting can easily be arranged in advance. If you like great days out, Redyeates Farm is well placed for easy access to everything that Devon has to offer without having to spend all day in the car.
If you require a slightly larger property (sleeps up to 8) check to see if our Redyeates Barn is available (Property ID 529618).

The Devon region
The region is particularly noted for its beautiful rolling Devon countryside and it is a fantastic location for great days out.
You have the option of visiting many tourist attractions in the area without having to spend a long time in the car. You also have the option if you want a day at the beach to drive to either of the north or south coastlines with their pretty fishing villages and coves as well as rock pools for the children. Either coastline is around 40 minutes away by car. We are also centrally located between either of the National Parks (Exmoor and Dartmoor) being just 12 miles from either park where there are fantastic walks, riding, fishing or cycling opportunities.
If the Cathedral City of Exeter is more your thing, it is about 20 minutes away by car. Here you will find all of the major shops and a huge selection of good places to eat as well as the attractive Exeter quayside.
There is a lot to do nearby and the property is surrounded by a huge variety of attractions and depending on what you like, there is something for everyone within a short distance. Close by, there are pubs with good food, a fantastic farm shop for local produce as well as places to walk, cycle or horse ride.
In Bickleigh (10 minutes), is a beautiful Devon village with many thatched cottages, a 400 year old pub, the Devon Railway centre and 'The Fisherman's Cot', a great pub to sit outside by the river. Bickleigh Mill has an 18th century working water wheel, a woodland, waterside walks and a maze and The Trout is another traditional pub with a beautiful thatched roof. The Mill also has a large shop with gifts, clothing, pottery and crafts and there is an excellent Bistro restaurant and bar open during the day and serving evening meals on certain nights.
In each of our cottages we have an information pack full of ideas for great days out and some examples in the surrounding areas include:-
Devon Railway Centre – 5 miles
Yearlstone Vineyard – 5 miles
12th Century Tiverton Castle – 7 miles
Trout fishery (learn to fish) – 8 miles
Cathedral City of Exeter – 10 miles
Exmoor National Park – 12 miles
Dartmoor National Park – 12 miles
Quad Biking at Quad World – 13 miles
Crealy Adventure Park – 17 miles
National Trust – Castle Drogo – 17 miles
The Devon Railway Centre
Great for the younger ones (or anyone that likes a ride on a narrow gauge railway) and with an indoor play area, wildlife area and the recently added model village, the Devon Railway centre is a real hit with the kids.
Great for the older ones (or children interested in how wine is made), Yearlstone Vineyard is just 5 miles (12 minutes) away and is the oldest vineyard in Devon. Take in a tour of the vineyard and maybe stop for lunch at the vineyard's Deli Shack Cafe with a terrace that overlooks the lovely river Exe valley.
The Devon School of Fishing
Learn to Fish or improve your technique. Fun for all ages, the Devon School of Fly Fishing caters for all age groups and all skill levels from total beginners.
This is one for all the family or relax with a coffee while the kids have fun. For all ages from 6 upwards, Quad World is a well run adventure with smaller quads for the young ones and proper tuition ensuring your children are safe before they go off on their own. The track is half a mile long.
National Trust – Castle Drogo
With the usual National Trust facilities, Castle Drogo was the last ever castle to be built in England. Taking in the beauty of the Teign Valley, or stretching your legs in the gardens, which are perfect for a summer picnic (picnic areas provided), there's plenty to see from the colourful rhododendron valley and rose gardens to the quaint Bunty House (Wendy House) complete with its own miniature garden.
Breakfast is served here from 8.30 every morning if you fancy an early start and there are cafes & shops with local produce and plenty for the children to do with quiz/trail, walks, talks and art and craft workshops.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the best walk in Dartmoor is from Castle Drogo to Fingle Gorge: a two-hour round trip that takes you past the dramatic castle and through an oak-lined gorge to an ancient stone bridge and traditional pub – classic Dartmoor sights….. enjoy.
Lustleigh Village on Dartmoor
Hidden in a wooded combe, this film-set-perfect village is one of Dartmoor's most lovingly maintained. Its thatched cottages are grouped around a 13th-century church, with the Primrose Tea Rooms to one side and village shop to the other. The rural idyll is completed by the cricket pitch, communal apple orchard and a friendly pub serving real ales and great food.
Crealy – Devon's Greatest Adventure Park
The Park has over 60 rides and attractions set in over 100 acres of glorious Devon countryside. The park caters for the whole family, from the smallest children to parents and grandparents alike. There are over 100 animals, 30 outdoor attractions and a variety of other activities to choose from. With heart-stopping rides for thrill seekers to soft-play and animal petting for younger guests, Devon's Crealy is a major South West attraction for family days out.

"I can't wait to go back"
Three days just wasn't long enough in this idyllic setting. At Dairy Cottage, every need was anticipated and provided for - the accommodation is tasteful, spacious and extremely comfortable. Our hosts gave us the best welcome I have ever received at a rented property and I can't wait to return - for a l longer visit next time!

"5 star accommodation!!"
If your looking for superb holiday stay look no forward then Redyeates Dairy, Mid Devon.
Accommodation is first class, comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated with fantastic views, all in all a 'real gem.' I highly recommend it. The hosts Louise & Gary are very welcoming & helpful - nothing is to much trouble for them - I wish them every success with their business they truly deserve it.

Wonderfully cosy, spacious and tastefully furnished accommodation with great attention to detail, and a lovely welcome pack with essentials. The farm is located in a spectacular location with panoramic views of both Exmoor and Dartmoor, and for anyone looking for peace and quiet in the heart of beautiful Devon countryside, this place fitted the bill perfectly!
Both Bickleigh and Tiverton were a short drive away along scenic routes, and there are other small villages nearby, each with traditional pubs serving delicious reasonably priced food.
Can't wait to return soon!
