“Such a lovely short break”
Reviewed April 11, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I had booked the dairy as a gift for my parents and they absolutely loved it. Every thing was so relaxing and fresh. Gary & Karen are amazing host they are very welcoming and friendly. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful. They loved it so much (my parents) that they are already planning a family holiday in June. Highly recommended, you won't want to leave!

“Amazing location with perfect hosts.”
Reviewed April 8, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Paradise by name, and by nature. The Dairy is one of the most beautifully situated holiday lets you could imagine. Surrounded by nature with amazing views of the countryside. The accomodation was perfect,with everything you need provided, and more. From the warm welcome and faultless customer service from friendly hosts, Gary and Karen, to relaxing in the hot tub after an evening stroll, this was a dream holiday. Will definately return.

“Beautifully renovated in a stress free location with beautiful view.”
Reviewed March 23, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Away from everyday stresses, soak in the hot tub and enjoy the stunning view. Take a book and chill out , watch the wildlife or wander down to the pond through the daffodils or summer meadow. Sherway Farm really is a little bit of paradise.

“Didn't want to leave! Magical Christmas”
Reviewed January 1, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We had a great Christmas here! Our hosts thought of absolutely everything and went that extra mile to make it a really special break for us. Amazing scenery that words just can't describe, the hot tub was amazing! and this is simply a really lovely place to be and I couldn't recommend it enough. We're already planning when we'll next be visiting.
And when I say they've thought of everything, they really have, you won't go without a thing here! Even the mini marmite in the cupboard!

“Total Relaxation with Beautiful Views.”
Reviewed October 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed in the Dairy where so much attention to detail and thoughtfulness has gone into this beautiful cottage which contains everything you could possibly need and more.

Karen and Gary are so kind and helpful nothing is too much trouble for them they even offered us a lift to the local pub!

We enjoyed the fabulous hot tub, where we could chill out with a glass of wine admiring the stunning scenery "PERFECT"

Well.. Where to start? Gary & Karen have done an amazing job creating this gorgeous hideaway. The Dairy is luxurious; beautifully decorated and fully equipped with everything you need! The hot tub is superb and the views breath taking. Swifts and swallows abound.. A pure delight to watch when relaxing in the hot tub as is the ever changing Devon sky. Gary and Karen helped us to provide a very good friend with a much needed break and nothing was too much trouble for them; we came away feeling we had made good friends and we cannot wait to return! We only had booked a week but stayed on .. We only left because of having to return to work! We cannot recommend Sherway Farm highly enough.. Superb, luxurious 5 star accommodation, setting and Welcome! Thank you Gary, Karen and Jim, we will be back asap!! Xx
