We stayed for just one night to attend a nearby wedding. The hosts were really welcoming and friendly. The Farm house is quirky and cosy and feels like a real Farm house. 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

The room was clean and nicely decorated and Nova and Mick recommended where to eat and visit for a nice chilled out evening. The breakfast was very tasty and we would... More

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

What a lovely place to stay!! Mick and Nova were the perfect hosts from the moment we arrived. It's a large old farmhouse and our room was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was very enjoyable with the friendly service making it a wonderful experience. Both Mick and Nova were most helpful in providing suggestions as to where to eat and... More

We only stayed for one night but wished it could have been longer. The house is beautiful with a very attractive garden, our room was very comfortable and the breakfast was lovely. The owners were very friendly and welcoming.

I have stayed here many times over the last 10 years or so and was happy to find nothing had changed. Great accommodation in a lovely large house that is really quiet. Rooms are very comfortable as are the beds. Parking is not a problem and if you have a large vehicle they will put bollards out if you want.... More
