Very Good


Reviewed 9 May 2018

Our weekend 5th May to 7Th May was absolutely fantastic, Marlene's cream tea on arrival was delicious. We had five children and six adults and the adventure playground consisting of a very large trampoline, zip wire, climbing frame and house were great for the children there is also a games room with table tennis, skittle alley, blowup castle with ball pit and exercise machines were great, and now to the adults, the hot tub was amazing, the new kitchen is large with a large range electric cooker and an American style fridge freezer, in the rest of the farmhouse the dining table doubles up as a snooker table, all the bedrooms are large with ensuites. There is plenty for everyone to do and we do say it is 5star rated. I could say a lot more but running out of space, well worth going.

Owner's reply: Thank you Christopher and Pauline for that really lovely review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.

“Amazing home from home”

Reviewed 7 May 2017

Had a lovely week here with the whole family, 6 adults, 1 toddler and 2 dogs, with extra family stopping over for the odd night. Week started with a tasty cream tea provided by the owners, Marlene and David. Plenty in the house to keep everyone entertained, from baby toys, dressing up clothes, pool table and much more. House is warm and welcoming. Highly recommend Segwaying at Bude and Arms of Old archery in High Ampton. The village butcher sells wonderful local produce and the Fish Shop nearby is not too be missed. Everyone is very helpful.
