We took our 20 month old son down to Widmouth Farm Cottages for a much needed holiday (his first). We all had a wonderful time, the look on his face as we fed the animals on the first morning was a real picture. Had there been room in the car you might have been short a goat or a duck... More

Our mixed family (grandad, mom, 2 young boys) stayed for a long weekend in the Round Barn cottage. For the boys, feeding the animals (alpaca, pigs, sheep, goats, poultry, guinea pigs, etc.) was a real highlight, especially with the encyclopedic commentary by Jeremy Sanson as we walked around for 1-1/2 hours. Nice play area (smallish) for children, lots of places... More

It was wonderful to have your multigenerational family stay and to watch you enjoy what our spectacular part of Devon has to offer. Thank you for your very kind comments in respect of the animal feeding, through which I hope to impart some of my knowledge and enthuse both the young and old in what is a fascinating area More

Stayed here for a week in July, with our 4 year old son, to say he enjoyed it would be an understatement. The location is fabulous, whether you choose to go to the private cove or travel further afield, it is an ideal spot to base yourself. We can highly recommend the short walk to Watermouth castle, enjoyed it so... More

Recently had a week in Round barn. Lovely cottage and the cup cakes on arrival were yummy! Our little girl loved feeding the animals, especially giving trotters a cuddle. Beautiful location and wonderful owners. Perfect holiday :-)

We are delighted you had such a good time. It was also a pleasure for us, as it always is when children get so much out of a stay on a farm. We hope to see you here again! More

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. I am sorry that the Broadband speed and lack of mobile signal was such an issue for you. We have been informed that Ilfracombe is (hopefully) due to get high speed broadband in the next few months, so this will obviously be a great help. Our signal strength is... More

We spent four nights here in July. The location is stunning. We were met with a very warm welcome. My two sons aged 7 and 8 loved feeding the animals and the private beach. My mum and I loved the beautiful unspoilt charm of the place. The beach is a lovely place for a swim or reading a book near... More

Thank you for the review and we will tell Cinnamon, Toast and Bianca the goats that they are now famous on Trip Advisor! They continue to be real pickles and got out of the field again today, so had to be tempted back to their stable with a bucket of food (that is not difficult). We hope to see you... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the farm 4 nights and we found the place delightful. The fact that you are so close to the cliffs and with 5 minutes walk you can enjoy a stunning view of the coast and reach a local beach is priceless. We really liked the farm and the animals around! The cottage was lovely... More

Thank you so much for your review. You mention something we really love about living here: the fact that you feel miles from anywhere, yet we are so easily accessible and only 5 minutes drive from a town or village (or a lovely slower walk along the coastal footpath). We hope you will visit again! More

We returned yesterday from a week at swallow cottage. We were greeted with smiles and cup cakes and felt the tension immediately drop away.

Just returned from our first (but hopefully not our last) visit to Widmouth Farm. We stayed in Kestrel Cottage which is a 2 bedroom. We only required one bedroom but it was decided with three dogs it might be a bit cramped in the other cottages. The owners provide a stair gate which was very handy to keep three inquisitive...
