We stayed for only 3 nights as a base to celebrate my birthday. Even prior to arriving Jackie was helpful in providing us with a list of suggested places to dine for the special event. On arrival we were greeted with a lovely cream tea and the hospitality continued throughout our stay. We were in the Forget-me-not room which had...

The welcome is sincere, the site peaceful and idyllic, the accommodation homely and comfortable, the building vibrant with history, the farm animals charming, the breakfast copious and extensive in choice and indeed nothing has been overlooked. Our three night break at Huxtable farm in March could not be marred by the inclement weather and we will keep a fond souvenir...

The tranquillity and character of the farm and the accommodation are outstanding - but even more so is the quality of the welcome! Arriving on a cold, dark December night it was so good to be greeted as I got out of the car by the friendly offer of help with my luggage closely followed by a delicious scone with...

Stayed in 'Swallow' which is well equipped with all you need and more. Very good set of drawers and large wardrobe for clothes particularly, something you don't always find in conversions of old farm buildings. Spotlessly clean. Ample toiletries. Won't repeat the eulogies about the breakfasts, let's just say I put on too much weight!! Good range of options to...

We've just returned as a couple from a four day break. We would happily return with the children as they are catered for as well. This is my first time in B and B and I wasn't disappointed. Far from it..... Jackie and Anthony have created an oasis of peace and relaxation. Where nothing was too much trouble. The rooms...

Excellent B&B - loved it! No expense spared for the guests comfort. Incredible breakfasts based on produce from the farm. They even have their own clotted cream which you can buy and take home with you! Very friendly hosts and beautiful farm environment! Thank you very much Jackie and Anthony!

We stayed here for three nights for the somersault festival and had a great time. Jackie and Anthony were brilliant hosts, nothing was too much trouble. We were even given lifts to the festival site for a small charge. The breakfast was amazing with so much choice and all either homemade (jams and bread) or locally sourced (sausages and bacon)....

I have stayed at the farm for 2 years whilst doing business in Devon. Always a very nice welcome and the owners Antony and Jackie are lovely people. Lovely rooms and surroundings and a great breakfast in the morning. I shall be staying again and I recommend to others for a nice peaceful break. Phillsr Southampton

We stayed here for 3 nights in late Sep. Jackie was the perfect hostess, greeting us with a lovely Devon cream tea. Room was on the small side but considering the farm is 16th century it was still fantastic. Breakfasts were huge cooked by Tony, homemade jams fantastic. There is a lounge room that you can utilise.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, when we had the 3 bedded family room. Good bathroom, clean all round and so on. My reservation is more of a cautionary point if you like a medium bed. The beds are probably the firmest I have ever tried to sleep, an I have a good quality 'firm' at home. Also, the general sitting...
