We had a fantastic time at Widmouth Cottages. Jeremy and Liz made us very welcome. Our children loved the animal feeding, the views are spectacular and accommodation brilliant. Watermouth castle was I walking distance which was a bonus too!

Thank you so much for the review and especially for pointing out that Watermouth Castle is now in easy walking distance as the coastal footpath has been extended, so it is now safe all the way! We do hope to see you again. Kind regards, Jeremy & Elizabeth More

We have just returned from a 5 night break at Widmouth Farm Cottages, we had a wonderful time spent at Woodpecker Lodge. The accommodation was excellent, well equipped & very spacious.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and obviously had the 'right clothes' with you for the changeable, sometimes stormy weather whilst you were here (I think it is the Scandinavians who say: " there is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes!"). We look forward to welcoming you again in Spring or Summer. The primroses &... More

We've stayed at Widmouth farm numerous times and love it. Our accommodation was spacious, modern, clean and well equipped. It's great to be able to take our dogs and enjoy the fabulous scenery and coastal walks. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much bother. Overall a lovely place to have a holiday, we'd highly recommend... More

We booked a half term break at Widmouth Farm Cottages, because our little girl loves animals, so we thought we could combine a trip to see family with a taste of farm life. It was an expensive option, compared to other places to stay, but the reviews were good, so we felt confident, especially about the location. The location is... More

Unfortunately this is the first we have heard of your disappointment with anything connected with your holiday at Widmouth Farm & we cannot identify you so we cannot do more than say “we are really sorry” here. We are particularly sad that you felt the cottage was not clean and sparkling (our aim). We would have come and put it... More

Fabulous location and potential however having read the on line description and reviews, we were disappointed. No one major issue led to this observation but a number of smaller items that did not meet with our expectations. Everyone comments on the friendly welcome by the owners, we can only assume they were away as we saw no-one in 5 days.

Elizabeth_Sansom, Owner at Widmouth Farm Cottages, responded to this review

We are so sorry, you are correct, we were away for a short break. I do hope you had a restful and relaxing break anyway. We will make sure that the people who look after the animals in our absence make a point of welcoming our guests every time in future - that was a bad omission on our part. More

My husband and I visited Widmouth Farm and stayed in Swallow cottage with our 15-year-old daughter for a week at the end of August. We also had our two dogs in tow. Self-catering is rather more restricted with dogs, so it was great to find somewhere that welcomed dogs and provided towels and throws if we needed them. We checked... More

We booked this trip on a recommendation from friends I only wish we had booked longer as 5 days didn't seem enough to fully explore what Widmouth farm has to offer.

I was looking forward to coming to Widmouth Farm, but a few days before we arrived I suddenly got nervous that it could not possibly be as good as the other reviews suggested. Almost as soon as we arrived I realised that my fears were unfounded, and we spent the most lovely week in Heron Cottage. The location really is... More
