Idyllic beauty with entertaining interruptions from the Farm animals. The roosters have an impeccable sense of timing that left us highly amused on many occasions! Piers and Sue made us feel very welcome and were veritable encyclopediae on local attractions and feasible destinations. Coming from the USA where we drive a ginormous vehicle by comparison to our rental, squeezing down some of the country lanes was an exercise in patience, tolerance and testing to the nerves, but it barely detracted from the otherwise calming and peaceful environment that surrounded us.
We are writing this review while still here at the Barn after arriving Saturday. At the moment (7am !) our 6yo son is out with Piers feeding the pigs, sheep and goats and playing with jack, the farm dog with a great temperament while sue is giving her horses a run out. Piers and Sue are fantastic hosts. We posted a review at the same time last year and can only confirm this place is still magical, with or without children (the 3 accommodations are very private). We stayed in Appletree last year which is highly recommended and now in the Barn, which is larger with the same attention to detail. We just cannot recommend this highly enough. The area is stunning with Salcombe and Dartmouth within 20mins drive and more sandy beaches than you could visit in a weeks stay all within easy reach. If you're coming to the south west then you will not do better than Cotmore farm. I have a feeling this will become a yearly visit. Piers and Sue, you have this exactly spot on.
We had a great stay at the lovely spacious barn. Located within beautiful countryside and a stones through from the coast and the town of you need it. Piers was a great host who pays great attention to detail. Looking forward to going back.
