What a wonderful place. Down the single track, high hedged, Devonshire lanes, lies East Raddon Farmhouse. We were staying one night only as we were going to a wedding in a nearby village. The owner, Sylvia, met us in the yard and we were led into the front room for a marvellous cream tea - Sylvia's baking is fantastic. A perfect start. Being a slightly animal mad I helped Sylvia feed the calves and piglets in the driving rain, such a great thing to do and luckily I had wellies in the car.
The room was very well appointed with lovely touches for women, like nail files, cotton wool etc. The bed large and comfortable and a sound night was had. The breakfast in the morning was all locally sourced with eggs from the chickens in the yard. Sylvia was a perfect hostess, even drying our clothes on the aga as the rain didn't let up. We even came away with recipes for her wonderful cakes.
