We recently had a lovely short holiday at this wonderful location. My wife is wheelchair bound, and we found the Stables very suitable for our needs. The cottage was very cosy and comfortable, with a lovely decked area outside. The setting is absolutely stunning and the gardens around the cottages are beautifully kept. The farm, with its variety of rare breeds is a delight. We also found it a perfect location for days out, and wished we had more time, as there is so much to see in the neighbourhood. There is loads of useful information in the cottage for days out and places to eat. I can highly recommend the fish and chips !! , from a van which visits the local village on a Tuesday.
Sue and her daughter are lovely hosts, and it was great to hear about their plans for the farm.
I would highly recommend Country Ways to anyone looking for the perfect North Devon holiday location
