Very clean and comfortable rooms, astounding breakfast, and the host and hostess are the most friendly and warm people, we stayed twice, one night each time, as we had personal matters to attend to, and my sister who live in the village had a full house. Higher Biddacott came very well recommended, and absolutely lived up to its reputation, and... More

The room was very comfortable, a lounge with log fire, full English breakfast, and outside were the shire horses and other animals. which Jonathan was working with. With lots of places to visit...

Fiona and Jonathan made us so welcome on their beautiful, ancient farm. Comfortable rooms, log fires, excellent breakfast, many kindnesses - and beautiful shire horses worked by Jonathan made our visit so special. Beautiful walks and farm trail, friendly pubs, stunning Exmoor landscape. You will not be disappointed.

Want to feel what it is like to live on a farm and have that authentic feel. This is the place of childhood memories. Wonderful hosts and wonderful food. A true Devon farm experience. Food to write home about and talk about when you see your friends. Homemade scones and eggs from the farm. Animals galore and a sense you... More

Four nights in this idyllic 12th C Farmhouse in the peace and quite of a working heavy horse farm. The owners are delightful; friendly and helpful being an understatement. The farm surroundings instantly relax you, while the actual buildings are just beautiful with enormous fireplaces and old books to be discovered. Add to this a proper farm breakfast and if... More

Just had a 3 night stay, excellent breakfast , comfortable accommodation and very friendly owners. The shire horses made an interesting addition to our break, not to mention the homemade cakes and scones and cream! Good sized room , lovely views. Will definitely return.

A group of 9 of us spent a long weekend here last week and were delighted. Lovely old farmhouse, deep in rural Devon. Fiona the best hostess - nothing is too much trouble, Best of all, sandwiches and Devon cream tea are included in the very reasonable £38 pppn. The waggon ride with the lovely Shire horses is a must.... More
