This was one of the best holidays we have had in a long time. We wanted to get away from the rush and the building work at home to some where quiet. This place just does it. Rydon farm is set in a very tranquil place. As you start driving towards the place all you see is vast green fields...

A very relaxing and cosy environment, Breakfast was lovely and very accommodating. We stayed for 4nights and felt very welcome. Dog friendly with a large enclosed grass area. Although based on a working farm, you really wouldn't know it once inside.

Although I had a specific need to be in this location, Rydon Farm is set in a very convenient position for anyone visiting East Devon, Exeter or the glorious coastline. Sally Glanvill was a charming and welcoming hostess and despite being a 'Farm B & B' the accommodation far outstrips any other so described that I have stayed in. The...

The title means the discovery of perfection by accident - Rydon Farm ! From the lovely greeting to the 'have a great trip back' we felt totally welcome. Brilliant to find a dog friendly B&B. The accommodation was amazing and waking to farmyard noises was so relaxing. Breakfast was lush ! Can also recommend The Diggers Rest pub - great...

Lovely room with very high quality furnishings and high-spec shower-room on working farm - new calves in the yard! Extremely friendly host. Wonderful home-cooked breakfast (the rhubarb & apple compote was brilliant!) with very high quality ingredients and perfectly cooked. Felt like being a guest in someone's home rather than staying in a B&B.

Nothing has changed at this B&B since our first stay a few years ago - it is still outstanding. The location is superb, the setting lovely. It is clean and comfortable, well appointed and well cared for. Sally is an excellent host who looks after her guests in a very genuine, unfussy manner. Breakfast is a feast of local, quality...

Stayed 1 night. Our hostess Sally was very welcoming. Our room was lovely and was very clean. Our son loved looking out the windows at the calves. Breakfast was excellent. The fresh stewed fruit was perfect to start the day! We really appreciated Sally showing us the farm. Would recommend Rydon Farm!

A fantastic, quiet location well situated for Exmouth, Woodbury Common and with Lyme Regis only 20 miles away. Sally was a wonderful host, breakfasts excellent from local produce and the room comfortable and well appointed. We took our dogs, who were also welcomed, and the whole experience was relaxing, stress free and enjoyable.
