Lovely comfortable accommodation. Character cottage. Somewhere to park. Very friendly proprietors. Homely and great value for money. I came here last year and I have come again. Much nicer than a very expensive clinical hotel. I would recommend it to anyone,

They are welcoming hosts, it's in a nice location for visiting Exeter and there is a nice breakfast in the morning. Recommended for families. Located in a nice village with a good pub and a restaurant. Would stay again if visiting the area

Stayed here for 3 nights last week. It was wonderfully welcoming, clean and in a lovely, quiet location. Breakfast was freshly cooked and very tasty. I would highly recommend it although sadly the couple are selling up later this year - so visit while you can...

Great communication before arriving. A really warm, friendly welcome, clean and comfortable bedroom with en-suite. A tasty and substantial breakfast. Pregnancy dietary needs were taken into account. Beautiful setting and charming village. We would definitely return! Thank you!

I have to declare an interest here as I was born and brought up in the village of Ide, Near Exeter in Devon. That said, i do not have shares in the Easterbrook's Bed and Breakfast - where I stayed for just one night early in January. In my day it was a working farm! this small and cosy B&B... More

We have just come back from a 2 night stay at Drakes Farm and could not have asked for a more hospitable or welcoming couple in Mick and Nova. They are just willing to put themselves out for you and nothing seems to be too much bother for them. The room we stayed in was kept immaculate and the hospitality... More

It is clean and well presented and the rooms are very spacious. We had a great night's sleep. All the facilities you need. We had a room with... More

I have been staying in this b and b in the week for the past 5 months (work related) and would not have stayed anywhere else as it has been perfect for my needs. It is handy to Exeter but far enough away to feel relaxed in the countryside. I had a very well appointed homely room tastefully decorated with... More
