Great place to relax, impeccably clean on arrival and Maggie even baked some scones. Kids loved the freedom, running, cycling and even boating on the pond. Ian was kind enough to run through the safety with the kids so they could use the boat.
It is quite a distance to more touristy attractions but we don't mind driving. Tarka trail not too far though. You could easily spend your time just relaxing on the farm though, its beautiful and full of wildlife (rabbits, birds, dragonflies, butterflies and spiders)
Love the quirky upscaled furniture, it fits very well with the style of the self built house.
We took dogs, and they really enjoyed the place. Found some nice places to eat locally that allowed dogs and Tesco deliver food to the farm.
Would be happy to return. …
Owlacombe Mill The Old Granary
Descending into your own little world...
We really can only echo what others have said and how they felt when staying in this wonderful characteristically Devonshire cottage. We booked very last minute (Thanks Carol for picking up those emails!) and couldn't have asked for anything more! It has every thing you require for your stay so really you don't have to leave...why would you?! A fully functional kitchen allowing you to rustle up breakfast, lunch and dinner without hassle along with a very cosy lounge and wood burner allowing for a cosy night in front of the TV or with a book from varied collection on offer in the cottage. The bed is just something else, we wasted an entire day watching TV and admiring the view as the world steamed on by without a care in the world. A little added bonus was the private land to wonder around, knowing you'd bump into wildlife and not much else it meant that it was even more relaxing! The owners were fantastic, in my experience it's the hosts that make trips with private rentals and they set a very high benchmark for others to follow. Great conversation from the start and we felt very very welcome and not just another set of guests for the cottage filling up the calendar. So Carol & Gareth thank you for giving us the short break we envisaged!
I can't wait for our next trip, this one I really don't want to tell anyone about! …
An ideal place to relax and within easy reach of the beaches north and south
The accommodation is very very good, we had it as a family holiday with children and grandchildren so there was a large spread of ages and everyone had an excellent time. the owners were on hand if we wanted anything but never intruded, if we ever go to this part of the country we will stay again …
