“Family run, farm accommodation where we felt very well looked after”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We stayed at Smallicombe when we needed weekend accommodation close to Honiton. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. On a cold January afternoon we we offered tea and biscuits on our arrival which we ate by a roaring log burner in the beautiful barn conversion which housed our room. Karen who looked after us, couldn't have been more helpful, ordering us a taxi to Honiton which we needed that evening. Our room was very tasteful decorated, warm, with a lovely shower en-suite and toiletries. It was spotlessly clean. After a good breakfast the next day we asked to see their rare breed pigs and sheep, which I found fascinating and felt like we'd stayed in a really special and interesting place. I was even emailed after we'd left by Karen who had found some hand cream I'd left in the room. Would definitely recommend to others.

This is a great place to stay. I loved seeing all the animals (particularly the pigs) and I am sure that all children and adults will have a great time. Also a great location to explore the jurrasic coast from.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely. Our room had a double bath which was great after many hours of walking.

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.

Room Tip: When arriving make sure you approach from the direction of Honiton, The roads from other directions...

A wonderful peaceful break, booked last minute but couldn't have wished for anything better. We stayed in the farmhouse which was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Karen and Maggie made us very welcome and it felt like nothing was too much trouble. There was lots of choice on the B&B menu which definitely set you up for the day

A thoroughly enjoyable break for us and our two children (11 & 8), in a beautiful part of the country. We stayed in a family room of the B&B which was generous, comfortable and very clean and the owners genuinely made you feel welcome. The children got to see all the livestock including lambing which was an amazing experience for them (and us!). The breakfasts were delicious, I think as a family we could highly recommend any choice as we went through most of them!! All in all, this was a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing break largely thanks to Karen and Matt at Smallicombe Farm!

Room Tip: We stayed in the B&B farmhouse where the family room had a separate kids room and bathroom which...

Smallicombe farm is a lovely find. We stayed for one night after running out if oil so is quite local to us. The accommodation is perfect for families and there are loads of animals to see. When we were there we saw baby piglets which were only a few hours old.

The area is very rural and beautiful. The farm has an informal shop where you can buy smallicombe meat products, sheepskin and woolly things.

Would definitely go again and recommend!
