We stayed in the little cottage which was roomy and was very pleasantly decorated, the view from the bedroom window was an idyliic scene of lambs and ducks!

The location is great for exploring saunton sands, woolacombe and lynton/lynmouth etc. The house is very solid grand farm house, with an exceptionally beautiful garden, with a few picnic benches.

More than all of that the host is just lovley and wonderful. A natural host, seemed genuinley interested in people, and very warm and kind.

I highly recomend this place and its also near one of the most stunning coves at Lee I have ever seen. We will definalty be back.

I've recently returned from Shaftsboro Farm, Lee, North Devon for the 5th time, and thought it was about time I raved about it so you all can go and experience it too!
Beautifully presented B&B rooms (the most expensive is £35 pp) with a full English Breakfast to die for!!! There's also a self catering cottage and caravan, and everything is finished to a very high standard. Children and dogs are welcome, but despite this, it's a very peaceful, secluded place to stay and there's easy access to plenty of coastal attractions (3 miles of golden sands at Woolacombe is simply the best beach around, especially for surfing) and it's only 10 minutes to Exmoor.
If it rains, there's still plenty to do in the nearby Victorian town of Ilfracombe, and you may well find that the weather is different if you travel north around the coast to Lynmouth (about 25 mins by car).
Golfing, horse riding (on the beach too), quad biking, Exmoor Zoo, plenty of gardens to visit - it's all there with stunning scenery and great local pubs and eateries.
It's a lovely area and Shaftsboro is a great place to stay. You'll get a really friendly welcome from Freddie & Margaret Kift, and all the animals on the farm. At the time of writing, there were very cute, fluffy guinea fowl chicks just hatching, and last year there were 11 orphan lambs all needing plenty of attention.
Try it - you'll love it!
