Mum and I spent two nights at Knole Farm, staying in the Brentor Room, which is very spacious and comfortable. It has an ensuite bathroom, with bath and separate shower, although we found the water pressure rather low. Two 'bucket' arm chairs in the bay window, which was south-facing. Plenty of wardrobe and drawer space in the room. We had... More

My husband and I have just returned from a 5 night stay. We chose bed, breakfast and an evening meal. Fantastic quality and quantity of food and a very good selection, largely home cooked and locally sourced. A 3 course meal for £18 is very hard to beat. This was our first holiday staying on a working farm. Mavis and... More

Lovely large house set in its own grounds, at the end of a tree-lined drive. Very comfortable inside, with well kept rooms and really comfortable mattresses. Friendly, welcoming host, good wifi connection, private parking, and very reasonably priced. A wonderful experience staying here, you could not go wrong.

We have stayed here a few times after it was recommended to us. The breakfast is great. The bedrooms are clean and tidy and fresh. Mrs Bickle is so lovely and the gardens are beautiful. A must stay if you're looking for a B and B near Okehampton.

I am writing this as I look out of the bedroom window at the lovely view at Knole Farm. It really is the best guesthouse we have stayed in, and amazing value. From the moment we drove up the tree lined drive we felt at home. The house is a beautiful old farmhouse on an actual working farm. We stayed... More

Our kids enjoyed every minute and were always so eager to rush outside after breakfast. breakfast was also varied and and included cereals, fruits and... More

Just returned home after 6 days at Knole farm and we are feeling like fish out of water having been spoilt by Mavis, a typical farmers wife, hard working, friendly, helpful and a fantastic cook. Our room was great, the farm house enchanting the location superb who could ask for more? in fact as my heading suggests all the comforts... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed for 3 nights at Knole Farm, we found Mavis and her husband very welcoming. Our room was very nice and comfortable and the en-suite was a good size, also there was a fridge in the room with milk to make tea/coffee. Breakfast in the mornings was freshly cooked with a good variety to choose from... More
