Oldaport Farm Cottages
Reviewed November 6, 2011

Our family took over Oldaport Farm, Nr Modbury, Devon.

What an outstanding place. We were celebrating a significant birthday and an opportunity to meet up with our children and Grandchildren.

The place is brilliantly located for visits, there is outstanding cottages, brilliant walks on the farm (mainly pedigree sheep and Shetland ponies, but were some cute ducks and pheasants too) . We found that the place is on an old Roman fort, the views all around are beautiful.
There are a number of beaches, great farm walks, Modbury is only a few minutes away for shopping, or Plymouth is less than 20 miles away.

All the accommodation is of a very high standard, there is everything you need for a holiday, great smelling soap, crisp, clean linin, fully kitted out kitchen, large TV with video and DVD player, book for those quiet nights…. the list goes on and on.

The owner, Cathy, is really nice and you will find a welcoming ‘cream tea’ when you arrive – we chose a Cornish cream team, Jam first and then cream on the top! We forgot our boots and Cathy was about to lend us a few pairs, but please don’t expect this!

We intend to return and so do two others from our party – exceptional.

Room Tip: Arrive in day light, it is easier to find the farm which is about 2 miles off the main road

All four cottages were cosy, very clean and well equipped, the kitchen was brand new and contained everything you might need except a dishwasher. Every cottage had a TV/DVD-player and a stereo. The general atmosphere on the farm was very familiar and friendly, the owner extremely helpful. All children loved it because they were free to visit the sheep, ponies and chickens. Driving was a bit difficult because the farm can only be reached on very narrow single-track lanes. We didn't find a footpath to the beach, which is only 1.5 miles away, so we had to use the car most of the time.
