From the time we arrived when Keith carried our bags from the car - until the day we left – we couldn’t have met a friendlier couple!
Our stay at Spiller Farm was completely perfect! Couldn’t have picked a nicer B&B....
We chose to stay here due to the close proximity to River Cottage (10 minute drive) and staying at Spiller Farm was ideal.
Clean, fresh and spacious Bedroom with everything you need at hand. Even a mini fridge which Brigit fills with fresh milk each day! Large, airy bathroom with a lovely view of the farm.
On arrival, Keith was extremely helpful – proving us with local information on where to eat, advice on the best way to get to River Cottage etc . He also told us we were free to help feed the orphaned lamb - which was a lovely experience for us, as we wouldn’t normally get the opportunity to do so!
The farm is full of lovely friendly animals, especially Merryck the dog – such a lovely nature and is happy to walk you around the farm.
We have stayed at many hotels, B&B’s - however the breakfast at Spiller Farm was by far the best we have ever had! Keith’s bacon and sausage (cooked freshly on his Aga) was absolutely delicious and we couldn’t leave without buying some to take home with us! Trying duck eggs were a first for us and we fully agreed with Brigit – after duck eggs – you don’t want to eat hen’s eggs again!
Also the jams are homemade by Keith and don’t leave without buying some to take home!
Staying at Spillers Farm really made our first visit to Devon extra special. It's a lifestyle to be jealous of!
We would recommend to anyone and will definitely be returning!
