We have just got home from a lovely weekend at Spiller's Farm. We wanted to stay somewhere close to River Cottage, as we had booked the "Saturday evening at River Cottage" experience. Spiller's Farm was perfect for this - only a ten minute taxi journey away.
From the moment we arrived Keith and Bridget were so welcoming and made us feel very much at home. Merryck (their gorgeous golden retriever) was also very good at his job of meeting and greeting! We had a look around the farm straight away and saw the new litter of piglets - sooooo sweet!
Our room was lovely and the kingsize bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious - Keith makes his own sausages and bacon which was very tasty.
On the Friday evening we wandered into the nearby village of Colyford and had dinner at the Wheelwright pub. The food there was very good - definitely recommended. On Saturday Merryck took us for a walk around the lake and up to the river, where he got very excited about chasing the stones we threw for him! We spent the rest of the day walking along the coastal path from Seaton to Branscombe via Beer - very pretty coastline - and travelled on the old electric trams which run between Colyford and Seaton.
I would highly recommend Spiller's Farm - we are planning to go back soon to meet the new lambs, and of course to catch up with Merryck again!
