From the welcome through to the following morning's departure the stay could not have been better. Every comfort catered for, sumptuous breakfast and tips on where to go to for a good evening meal. I will certainly stay again.

After a long and gruelling journey due to the bad weather, and feeling somewhat flat, we spent one night at Rydon Farm with our family, and our moods were instantly lifted when we were greeted by Sally who is a lovely warm person and when we were taken to our rooms. We had the three rooms on the first floor,...

I spent 2 nights at Rydon farm with my daughter. The room was spacious and well furnished, and the beds very comfortable. The bathroom was very modern, and had a great shower. There was a great choice of hot dishes on the breakfast menu, also cereals, yoghurts, juices, fruit etc. The owner Sally was extremely welcoming and helpful. Highly recommended.

We spent a one night stay at Rydon farm and were very impressed with the standard of accommodation, it was certainly far superior to what we have always thought of as 'Farm B&B' We had the ground floor room which quite took our breath away as we entered the room. The quality of the furnishings was very high and co-ordinated,...

We were looking for a room for 3 adults to break up the journey down to Cornwall. I found Rydon Farm and from the website it looked very nice. Sue was great in checking what time we would be arriving and providing local knowledge on a good place to eat (The Diggers Arms - worth booking as it was busy)....

Not far from Exeter but in a very quiet village, this farm based B&B is excellent. You get a warm welcome from Sally and she knows the area very well. I stayed in the Dart Room on the ground floor with plenty of space to sit and read/watch some TV; the bed is very comfortable and there is plenty of...

We were given a very warm welcome by Sally and shown into a room that could have featured in a glossy magazine. The bed was extremely comfortable and the furniture and curtains beautiful. Everything was very clean. Equipped to a high standard, even a pair of furry hot water bottles in the draw. Fabulous En-suite. Breakfast on both days was...
