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

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

We returned yesterday from a week at swallow cottage. We were greeted with smiles and cup cakes and felt the tension immediately drop away. Myself, my husband and my son of 13 months enjoyed daily animal feeding with Jeremy and Elizabeth. All guests going off together just before breakfast to feed the pigs, chickens, turkey and many more, added to... More

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...

Just back from two weeks in Martin cottage - The farm is in a wonderful site on the coast, with Ilfracombe and Coombe Martin within easy reach. A great spot for a family holiday with a range of attractions and historic sites, picturesque villages, and open countryside nearby. The cottage was ideal for the three of us (Two parents and...

What a great place to recharge the batteries, beautiful scenery and great places to walk. An ideal base for a dog friendly break. Stayed in Robin was small but had all you needed. One small grievance the electricity meter made a lot of noise when trying to sleep, but the walking and fresh air helped.

Thank you for the review and the feedback. We did not realise there was a problem with noise from the electricity meter, so appreciate you telling us and we will get advice from an electrician - if that doesn't give a suitable answer we can build an insulated cupboard around the meter. We also appreciate that Robin is a small... More

We went here for a week in the Easter holidays and stayed in the Partridge and Pheasant. We took 9 of us. Our family of 4 stayed in one of the 200 year old cottages.

Thank you for your review and we are so pleased you made good use of our beach and enjoyed meeting the animals. It is amazing how quickly those chicks have grown and turned in to fully fledged hens and cockerels - they are out and about now enjoying the sunshine! We hope to see you all again. More
