Having a dog I booked the ground floor room, which was only a few steps to the front door and to the garden, ideal for his early morning and bedtime toileting. The elegant, charming and spacious room was very well appointed with blissfully comfortable pillows and bed. The shower room looked brand new and everything was spotlessly clean. The amenities...

Immaculate, comfortable room with every detail thought of. Sally was a very welcoming host who couldn't have been more accommodating to our needs. Breakfast was excellent with a wide selection to choose from, and Sally's apple and rhubarb compote was delicious! Would not hesitate to recommend Rydon Farm or stay here again.

We stayed en route to Cornwall and after a long drive we had a blissfully peaceful night in a supremely comfortable bed. The room was immaculate and we could not have asked for more. Sally had thought of everything we might need and her breakfast was perfect. Very highly recommended!

This was first class accommodation, attractively furnished, spotlessly clean and with every last finishing touch. The bed was really comfortable and, with the peace and quiet of the countryside, ensured a good night's sleep. Sally was friendly and welcoming and recommended an excellent nearby pub, The Diggers rest, which was so good we went there twice. I cannot recommend too... More

Through years of experience the host has thought of everything. My room was immaculate as the rest of the property. It was very pleasant to watch the milking cows in the yard outside while I had breakfast. The farm is evidently a well run family business with very proud owners!

A warm welcome from charming Sally, a comfortable,superbly equipped en-suite bedroom and a delicious selection of breakfast goodies made our recent stay at Rydon Farm highly enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.This is a worthy winner of the region's Gold Award for Bed and Breakfast accommodation.Well done Sally and thank you.

Stayed for two nights earlier this month. We stayed in an upstairs room, which was attractively furnished and with a modern, roomy bathroom. Our host was very friendly and helpful, recommending a nearby restaurant for dinner when we asked. Breakfast was excellent, with both cereal and a full English breakfast cooked to order available - their own milk was a... More

Our second stay at Rydon and we were not disappointed. Sally is a great host and her breakfasts are so good. The rooms are excellent, everything you would find in a first class hotel with beautiful bathrooms. It was so beautiful and peaceful too. Thank you Sally

Having been working in Exeter for the last 3 years, this is the best B&B I have found. A nice rural location, but within easy commute of Exeter Town Centre. The standard of the rooms and facilities is very high and the choice and quality of breakfast is excellent.

My husband and I found this lovely B&B very late at night having been stuck in traffic and unable to continue to our actual destination. We had our two small dogs with us. Sally was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel so welcome. The room was very clean and comfortable, it had little touches... More
