We had a wonderful visit down to Higher Biddacot Farm. Fiona and Jonathan made us feel so at home with little touches like the Sunday paper and flapjacks all very much appreciated. It really felt like a home away from home. A couple of great drives and a quick ride on a shire horse really made the weekend unforgettable.

Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure to have you both to stay. So glad we managed for you to ride Billy and that you saw the wagon going out for a drive. Hope to see you soon. Fiona More

A sixteenth century farmhouse, a fmaily-run working farm. The farm is worked sustainably with heavy horses, using traditional methods. Growing their on food and cutting their own wood. The house has spacious rooms. A log fire and wood-burning stove heat the large sitting room and dining room. Scrumptious breakfasts and tasty evening meals are provided with home-grown produce. There are... More

I booked myself and some of my wedding guests here...I'm so pleased I did. Fiona and Jonathan were so lovely and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was amazing and after some guests arrived a bit later in the evening than expected Fiona rustled them up some scrummy scrambled eggs on toast followed by some homemade cake.... More

Although I only spent one night at Higher Biddacot Farm I was most impressed. The bed was one of the comfiest ever and I enjoyed sharing a delicious freshly cooked breakfast with the family. I'd love to return for longer as I'm sure it would make an excellent base for exploring North Devon. Many thanks for your kind hospitality.

We spent one night in this B&B and will definitely go back. A fantastic family-run B&B with great food and beautiful surroundings. The owners absolutely make this place - when they say make yourself at home, they mean it. After a stoll across the nearby fields to the local pub, we had an early-evening Shire-horse pulled carriage ride, which was... More

Higher Biddacott Farm is one of our favourite B&Bs. It's an ideal day to wake up in the medieval farm house; have a scrumptious cooked breakfast; take the kids body boarding at Croyde; then walk to the local pub "The Bell" for a meal and drink or two, before returning to Higher Biddacott and falling to sleep in a warm...

We had a short stay and didn’t want to leave! Went for an awesome carriage ride, talked about animals a a lot, ate a delicious heart stopping breakfast, slept like a log in the most amazing old room (watch your head coming out of the bathroom!) very hospitable great stay.

We wanted a farm B&B for our weekend holiday with our son, his wife and their new baby. We couldn't have found a better farm! Fiona put our family in a little suite of rooms set off from everyone else. She had accommodations ready for our little four month old grand son and made the new parents feel completely comfortable... More

We chose Higher Biddacott Farm because it is near to the RHS gardens at Rosemoor. This was a truly wonderful place to stay - Jonathon keeps and trains the most beautiful, gentle, heavy horses, and it's worth coming here just to view the deep rapport between man and animals. These gentle giants obviously love their master, and it was a... More

We stayed here for three nights in July 2011 as we were attending a friends wedding. Fiona was kind enough to pick us up from the train station and then treated us to some exceptional home made choc bic's and a cup of tea. Our room was large and had a lovely view. The breakfasts were fantastic and when we... More
