We stayed here for two nights while in Devon for a family celebration. Julie and Russell were the perfect hosts (in my mind) welcoming and accommodating whilst also giving us our own space too. They gave us a "cold" breakfast everyday of cold meats, cheese, jam, cereal, etc, with fresh loafs of crusty bread were provided as well as even providing a gluten free loaf for me. The farm is beautiful and picturesque, with chickens in the garden out front, and horses and sheep in the nearby field. My son loved staying on a "farm" and seeing all the animals. It's not your typical farm with the smells and mud that accompany it. This is a clean, neat and pretty farm, with beautiful countryside surrounding it. The accommodation was more like a self contained apartment, with a large double bedroom at the top, where my mother slept in the big double bed, and my 27 year old brother in a cot bed set up in the same room (it is a very big room with a sloping roof ceiling, with a sofa and TV in it). The bathroom is lovely, with a roomy shower (no bath) and white fluffy towels. The is a small kitchen next door with a breakfast bar and stools. My husband and I stayed in the smaller double room downstairs with our 5yo son staying in a cot bed set up at the bottom of the bed. This didn't leave much room, but it didn't matter, as it was a comfortable bed, and the flat upstairs was big enough. The only downsides, which were far outweighed by the good were that the TV arial wasn't very good, and no fancy toiletries, but the loveliness of the flat, farm and surrounding area more than made up for this, so I wouldn't knock off a star for that. Who wants to watch tv in such a lovely place anyway. I would highly recommend Boyton Farm, and at such a reasonable price too!
The double room upstairs was the best room.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. We value your comments and believe there is always room for improvements. Although we are only 2 miles from Tavistock town we are 'hidden away' on the edge of the moor and being so private and rural we do sometimes struggle with the TV signal. We have put boosters in each room which work well although understandably sometimes they get moved around. We will now be checking they are in the correct position for a good signal as part of our room preparation regime. We will also look at our toiletries. To date we have provided good quality and functional packaging to suit our family clients with children, and we will now look at providing a more bespoke selection for our couples. Thank you.
