“Perfect little country escape”

We are a family with young children and decided last minute to go away to the countryside for the easter weekend and found this little cottage advertised on the net and available for the 3 nights we were after.
The landlady, Sally, was very prompt in her correspondence and we found it very easy to make the booking.
We arrived to find this charming, little, self-contained, rustic cottage furnished very beautifuly and neatly with a small thoughtful food hamper awaiting us in the kitchen. The cottage (a well-done up barn conversion) is set in a working dairy farm with lots of outdoor space for the kids to play in and is surrounded by the picturesque Blackdown Hills. Sally was very helpful in giving us some pointers in terms of nearby areas of interest and the children (ages 9 and 4) enjoyed running about both indoors and outdoors.
Owl Hayes is ideally situated to be a local base whilst exploring Devon - nearby beaches we visited were Seaton and Sidmouth (Jacob's Ladder). Honiton (nearest town) is a 10-min drive away and has a good range of shops and pubs/restaurants/takeaways.
We were pleasantly surprised having found this little gem of a place and will definitely visit again whilst exploring the gorgeous Devon countryside.

Found Owl Hayes at Godford Farm to be a gorgeous cottage, equipped with everything we needed plus set in the stunning Devon countryside. Not far from Sidmouth and Exeter, its perfectly located to explore what Devon has to offer. On the days when we didn't want to go far there were plenty enough walks round the farm fields and the immediate countryside. It was a beautiful holiday and would definitely go again.
