Getting around

Our nearest railway station is Totnes, some 40 minutes' drive away. It is on the main line between London and Penzance, which means hourly trains in both directions. The journey time to London Paddington is approximately 3 hours. Public buses run from Totnes station to Kingsbridge and Dartmouth, our nearest towns, and the Route 3 bus, which runs from Dartmouth to Kingsbridge and then on to Plymouth, stops in the village of Chillington, a mile from the farm. Most visitors come to Cotmore by car; we are approximately 50 minutes south east of Plymouth and some 70 minutes south west of Exeter. Once arrived, walking and cycling are popular ways to get around.

Interaction with guest

We like to welcome guests personally on arrival, show them in, and give a brief introduction to the farm and the area. After that, guests are left to their own devices, but we are never far away when needed, and can be found either in the Farmhouse, or about the place, tending to the livestock and carrying our our duties. We are always happy to recommend a walk to suit your level of adventurousness, a beach appropriate to the prevailing tide or wind direction, or a place to eat commensurate with your appetite and wallet!

Very Good

“Appletree Cottage”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2017

We had a fantastic stay at Appletree Cottage, Piers and Sue are excellent hosts very helpful but not at all intrusive. The cottage itself is very light, airy and well equipped. The farm has numerous animals and was loved by our teenage daughters. Overall a great place for a family holiday and amongst the best places we have stayed at.

“Peaceful setting and good base”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2017

A lovely farm secluded but not far from days out and beaches. The accommodation is smart and modern. Owners very helpful. We cooked most evenings and had all the equipment we needed. Definitely recommended if you are looking for peace and tranquility with the option to drive out to towns/seaside (Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Salcombe) for the day.

“Rural escape”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2017

We had a fabulous half term week at Appletree Cottage. Property was very well designed and very comfortable for our family of 4. As previous reviewers have said, Piers and Sue let you get on with you own thing and explore the farm at leisure. When you need some local information they were always accessible and very helpful. Charming welcome hamper which got us hooked on their free range eggs! This is a wonderful corner of Devon with easy access to the coast which has some outstanding secluded coves and beaches. If you are into fish and chips then The Shack in Beesands is up there with the best. An excellent and very therapeutic holiday.

“A great place to stay”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2017

We stayed here on the May Day Bank holiday weekend, my parents stayed in Appletree Cottage with my brother and my families were metres away in The Barn. We had high expectations having booked based on all the positive reviews - happy to say our expectations were met. The farm setting and accommodation are fantastic, with the accommodation well laid out and to a high standard - we've previously stayed at 'At the Beach' in Torcross which is also great, but we preferred Cotmore Farm. Piers and Sue are very accommodating hosts, happy to give you as much or as little of their time as you prefer. The eggs from the farm are the best we've ever tasted and the sunshine on Saturday gave us the opportunity to BBQ some of the farm sausages which were delicious. The farm itself is well maintained, very clean and not a 'smelly farm'. The location is great, it's remote but we enjoyed a walk from the farm to Beesands for lunch at Britannia at the Beach. The Stokeley farm shop is just a short drive away and well stocked. We also had a fantastic Sunday lunch at the Thurlestone hotel.

“Home from home but top notch”

Reviewed 24 May 2017

All the amenities were first class and tasteful and we really enjoyed eating the contents of welcome basket and thoughtful 6 fresh eggs. We were not sight-seeing,as we were hunting down ancesters in the local parish churchyards,so we found some amazing villages that we would not otherwise visited such as Slapton,Chivelston,East Prawle,Chillington,Sherford (wonderful10th century church) and Thurlestone.The pub on the green at Prawle was a must see,and the food in the first Slapton pub was great.Wonderful atmosphere with all the locals as there was everywhere we went.Piers was very helpful in directing us to a ruined graveyard,just nearby near Ford,which had lovely views and peaceful.We loved the new born piglets on the farm,everywhere was welcoming.We loved the little chapel at Beesands as well. We had a very special holiday.Thank you .Teresa ,Mick and Sheila.

“Just what the doctor ordered, including sunshine for four days!”

Reviewed 2 May 2017

We were looking for somewhere to escape from our busy London lives and give our two children 5 and 3 a proper country experience. We got just that, a lovely barn conversion set in idyllic rambling countryside, so close to amazing beaches, Salcombe, Bantham (our favourite). But enough to do on the farm with Piers and his wife meeting us to allow the children to go and feed the animals at their feeding times. Collect eggs, stroke piglets, and bounce on a trampoline until the Devon fresh air took them to their lovely bedroom, to sleep soundly in the peace and quiet all night. Arriving late afternoon/evening to a gorgeous basket filled with local goodies really started our trip as it went on.

“Cotmore Farm”

Reviewed 1 May 2017

Another fantastic week at Cotmore Farm with Piers and Sue, who are excellent 'light touch' hosts, there when you need them but not otherwise. This is the second time we have stayed in two yrs and we have loved each time. Gorgeous comfortable conversion and a really stylish open plan cottage, with lovely sunny terrace. All mod cons and lovely welcome pack of goodies. Great being part of environmentally friendly farm and seeing lambs emerge and spring being sprung! Thank you we will be back!

“Everything we wanted from our holiday and more.”

Reviewed 27 Oct 2016

Piers and Sue could not have been better hosts - they had thought of everything you might need and even provided a wonderful welcome pack. My husband and I loved the peace and tranquility of the place. The cottage has been beautifully renovated and we relaxed every evening in front of the wood burning stove. Our children (6 & 3) thoroughly enjoyed feeding the pigs, collecting eggs for breakfast, bouncing on the giant trampoline and running around in the fields. The farm is in a lovely setting in the hills and the sea is very close by. It is well situated for exploring a number of places in this stunning region and we can't wait to return. Thank you Piers and Sue for a fantastic holiday.

“Beautiful barn in lovely location”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2016

We spent 4 nights at the Barn. The barn has been converted to a high standard and is the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in. The kitchen is well equipped and the very efficient log burner kept us beautifully warm and cosy. The welcome hamper was very appreciated. Piers and Sue are very friendly and welcoming and there if you need them. This is a lovely area and being just over a mile from the sea, this is a great location.

“Fun time for all the family!”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2016

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights with our 1 1/2 yr old in September. I'm slightly reluctant when writing this review because we liked this place so much and will definitely be back so I just hope we we do come to book again word hasn't spread too far and it's all booked up! If you have kids then this is the place to be, the farm has a wonderful welcoming feel about it and you instantly are made to feel at home by Piers and his family. The only difference is your new home is full of the friendliest farm animals anyone could hope for! Our little girl loved it. There was never a dull moment. And for the adults the location is fantastic and very close to places like Bantham, Salcambe, BeeSands, Torcross Blackpool Sands and even Dartmouth and Totnes are only a short hop away. All in all a fantastic holiday, we will definitely be back!
