The rooms are pretty, clean and come with fluffy dressing gowns, toiletries, tea making facilities etc. We evn got a chocolate egg each as it was Easter!

We booked a 3 night short break and immediately upon our arrival we were welcomed by Fiona and she kindly offered us afternoon tea and homemade cake. 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.

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.

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

We needed a North Devon base for a few days that would allow us to bring out dog and we had not taken to much time to research where to stay - Higher Biddacott Farm was the first place found and called. We arrived to be greeted by a lovely family, animals and a cream tea and the wonderful experience... More

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
