“Perfect for Kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We stayed at Cheristow a few weeks ago with our 7 year old daughter and 2 dogs and we all had a fabulous stay. Our daughter relished the time spent with the animals and the attention given to her by the owners who really made her feel part of things at the farm. She'll always remember feeding the lambs by bottle and watching them grow. We loved the cottage and the peace and gorgeous surroundings...and the great little spa room too - a welcome added luxury. Cheristow deserves all the great reviews.

We also have great memories of Easter this year! So many young lambs to feed and task made so much easier by our young helpers. Lucy the lamb is now out in the fields but still comes to you expecting a bottle so she remembers the love and attention that your daughter Emily showed her during your stay.
Glad you enjoyed Cheristow and the Peninsula.

We have just spent a week staying in The Stables and have had a fantastic time. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and the owners are so friendly and helpful. Our children Grace and Charlie absolutely loved bottle feeding the lambs, feeding the animals and using the playground - and of course seeing the tractors! We fell in love with this stunning, wild part of Devon and can't wait to come back. Thank you very much for a lovely stay and hope to see you again soon!

What a fantastic place. Beautiful conversions of old farm buildings make for an ideal getaway in a stunning part of the world. The accommodation is spacious, well equipped, tasteful, cosy and warm. The hosts are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. It is easily one of the best cottages we have rented - and we get through a quite a few. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for your great review. We are delighted that you have discovered this tranquil oasis and are also coming back for a longer stay next month. Like you we also had always managed to miss the Hartland peninsula - either rushing past on way to Cornwall or going north to Saunton and Croyde. It was certainly our loss and we are delighted to now share the many simple pleasures and beauty that this area has to offer.

Beautiful location with a view out to the sea over the rolling green hills. The Dairy is small but perfectly formed, owners very accomodating as well. The hot tub and sauna are very good and their policy of 'if the light is on come back later' is great. Everyone loves a little bit of privacy. Underfloor heating was very welcome as was the walk in wardrobe upstairs. The bed is really comfortable too and a nice touch of watching a bit of tele in the bedroom if you want to!

Thank you for your very positive review Naomi. It is always difficult to judge what is needed when a couple come away for Christmas. Cheristow is a perfect place to get away from it all. It is so easy to leave everything behind you and relax!
I am glad you were able to enjoy the views we try to ensure the best for guests but unfortunately the weather is beyond our control.

Stayed at the cottage for a brewing course in hartland. The cottage was very clean and well supplied. Homely touches made it really cosy especially with the ready prepped wood burning stove. The owners are very friendly and helped us plan excursions during our stay. The area is beautiful and we really felt away from it all. Lovely weekend.

We have just spent 7 lovely days at Cheristow Farm Cottages (The Milking Parlour) It was a perfect location for walking and there are lots of routes available direct from the cottage, so no need to use the car. The cottage had absolutely eveything provided (even washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and soap powder) it was comfortable and very clean and there was a lovely cream tea waiting for us on arrival. All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and Macy (our springer spaniel) particularly enjoyed herself.

Thank you; we are really pleased that more people have discovered the fantastic walking available on the Hartland Peninsula. We only discovered this wonderful corner of Britain last year but absolutely love the tranquility and the coastline is amazing!
Hope you will return to explore more.

We have recently returned from 10 days at Cheristow - a fairly last minute booking.
Gus and Sara couldn't have been more helpful, even making arrangements for our tortoise who we couldn't leave 'home alone'!

The cottage was extremely comfortable and we particularly appreciated the care taken over the detail - availability of basic cleaning materials, containers for walking lunches etc. It is an incredibly peaceful location and ideally situated for some great cliff walks along to Bideford and down to Bude. A great welcome with a delicious cream tea. And the spa bath and sauna (with very cosy robes provided) was also a plus.

The weather shone and it was a wonderful spot! Although the weather can't be guaranteed, the welcome can. We would certainly be back and recommend this lovely spot and well-equipped comfortable accommodation to others.

Thank you for your review Miriam though the request for additional accommodation for the tortoise was a first! We can only say that he was far less trouble than our kuni kuni pigs who seemed to love the attention that Ben gave them!
Glad the break recharged the batteries after the demands of exam season.
Love to see you (and tortoise) again.
