On arrival at the cottage in the pouring rain we were allowed to take possession early but the proprietor said she had not had time to check the cleaning. That was an understatement, the place was filthy. The toilet brush was caked in excrement and the toilet had not been cleaned. The cooking pots were under the sink, some of... More

We are totally incredulous and horrified to see your review and will of course be making personal contact with you now. You arrived at 1pm when 'check-in time' as in all our correspondence was 4pm and let yourselves in before we had completed cleaning & checking. I specifically said to you that if anything was not to your satisfaction you... More

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 :-)

My boyfriend and I stayed in the farm 4 nights and we found the place delightful.

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
