We recently stayed at the Rydon Farm and found it to be a wonderful time. We were greeted by Sally, our wonderful host, and immediately was shown to our room. We stayed in the room that accommodated 3 adults. We found the room to be spacious, lovely, and very inviting. The bathroom was spacious and very modern. We were quite... More

Sally was most helpful in texting information to us and arranging for us to let ourselves in after we arrived late.The ground floor double room was very comfortable, we appreciated the beautiful cotton bedlinen, the quality of the shower room...

I arrived at Rydon Farm around 3pm and recieved the most wonderful, warm welcome from Sally. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was cosy and clean, with plenty of tea, coffee etc and even fresh milk in the little fridge in the hall! The dairy herd 'The Girls' were really interesting and very quiet. Breakfast was excellent, with local... More

Although my daughter and I arrived a bit late from our day trip to Exeter city, we had a very warm welcome by Sally. Beautiful clean cosy rooms with all the essentials and an amazing selection of breakfast (we had egg benedict) with locally sourced produce, even the coffee was 'made in Devon'. Ideal location as it is only about... More

Rydon Farm already has good reviews and we are about to add to them. We needed dog-friendly accommodation for a short break and good Trip Advisor comments suggested we should try it for ourselves. We were not disappointed! The accommodation is not just well appointed and of a high quality, it is also spotlessly clean. The room we stayed in... More

We had visited the area many times before and had wanted to stay at Sally's B&B. We weren't disappointed! From the initial friendly welcome to the spotlessly clean four poster room with a view of the cows everying was perfect. The best bit was the fantastic breakfast which set us up for the day. We are looking forward to returning... More

Rydon Farm is really the place to go for a proper relaxing time. It is also well located if you like to visit Devon coast. The farm atmosphere makes you feel very comfortable and integrated in the area. Everything was very clean and tidy and at night time the countryside silent is the only thing you hear, which is just... More

We think that the glowing reviews say it all, but this really is a superb b&b,with Sally the perfect host. We only had a 1 night stay, but will return. Sally pointed us in the right direction to a local pub for a excellent evening meal, and the following morning were treated to a superb farmhouse breakfast.
