A dairy farm, so there are masses of cows and they were gorgeous. We (my teenaged son and me) had the smallest room, a twin. It was more than amply sized. The... More

Wow! What a wonderful, friendly welcome, despite our very late arrival! Our room was absolutely stunning! Our daughter is an interior designer and we have to say that our room had a top quality decor that would be hard to match!

We stayed at Rydon Farm after driving down from Manchester for a wedding in Budleigh. Sally was very warm and welcoming and went out of her way to ensure we could check in early to accommodate our driving / wedding schedule.

We enjoyed 3 nights in a very comfortable well appointed room, with our dog. Sally was very helpful in suggesting a suitable room when we booked. The breakfast was delicious, with lots of choice, and specials too. There was a garden to exercise the dog. We hope to return in the future.
