“A hidden gem”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2015

An old farmhouse and buildings tucked right away in the beautiful Devon countryside. Personal service from the proprietor including helping with feeding the pigs, sheep and hens. Plenty of space to relax quietly or to be more energetic in the pool or on the trampoline.

We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

“My familly had a wonderful experience here”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2013

Our holiday here was a great experience from day 1 - my family of 4 young boys just loved this place from the word go and hanging out with Farmer Graeme, helping him with his pigs (we always liked pigs now we love pigs) and chickens. The pool was great, the play hut was full of a wide range of toys, games, books, dvds for all ages and the grounds just lovely, with more outdoor toys, trampoline and sandpit. Our house, the Shippon was well equipped, comfortable and roomy. The location was just great. Our boys would have happily stayed and play all the time at the farm, all day every day for our 2 weeks holiday, but we dragged them away to the many gorgeous beaches nearby. There was lots to do and 2 weeks was just not enough. Because it was so hot, we did very little of the tourist attractions available to us except pool and beach. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and would love to come back again and see my pigs!
