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. Myself, my husband and my son of 13 months enjoyed daily animal feeding with Jeremy and Elizabeth.

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...
