Smallicombe Farm – The Hayloft
Real House Plants, Tasteful Decoration, Wi-Fi, superb facilities, extreme attention to detail! Not the normal attributes that you would expect from a self-catering cottage in the UK, but on this occasion we found that the Hayloft at Smallicombe Farm were all of these, along with many more.
We found the attention to detail was carried throughout the accommodation in every aspect. With fresh milk and hot beverage making facilities, along with an offer of farm fresh produce for our breakfast the next day. Our hosts ‘Ian, Maggie, Matt & Karen’ were on hand to make our stay pleasant, and offer local knowledge and advice of where to go, and places to see.
Our visit was in early march and even though you expect the worst in weather, the views from the windows were exceptional, looking out onto a tranquil surround, with the back drop of a real traditional working farm. The birth of lambs and piglets around the farm gave an ambiance of excitement and a lust for life.
After a superb evening meal, at a local hostelry. Our bed was found to be one of the most comfortable that we have ever found and comparable to a first class hotel. After a leisurely breakfast our host gave us a in depth and informative tour of this traditional working farm.
We would strongly recommend the accommodation at Smallicombe Farm, all of which has evolved with the help of feedback from past clients. Giving to facilities that are exactly what the clients’ want, and have asked for. Furthermore the location is exceptional with a short hop to the seafront and far enough away from towns and built up areas, to give a real feel of country living. A great base for touring the many visitor attractions of South Devon and South West Dorset.
