We chose Higher Biddacott Farm because it is near to the RHS gardens at Rosemoor. This was a truly wonderful place to stay - Jonathon keeps and trains the most beautiful, gentle, heavy horses, and it's worth coming here just to view the deep rapport between man and animals. These gentle giants obviously love their master, and it was a privilege to see them. Apart from that very moving experience, the 16th century farmhouse is a very interesting old building, beautifully restored in a style in keeping with it's age. We had the double bedroom with the gorgeous platerwork ceiling, which is a work of art, and by itself worth the stay. Jonathon & Fiona have managed to fit a cleverly made ensuite toilet & shower into the room without ruining the ambience of the place, the beds were clean and very comfortable. One tiny flaw, no hairdryers are provided, but that's minor. A fabulous place to stay.
