This place is fantastic. After travelling around for a couple of weeks to lots of places, we were travel weary and in need of a bit of a rest. This place was perfect to recuperate before we set off again (and we were able to clean our clothes - brilliant!). We stayed in a one-bedroom 400 year old cottage, which...

Have just come back from our weekend stay at the Cider Barn and had the most lovely time. Sandra was very welcoming and friendly and it was so nice to arrive to such a well equipped, clean and beautiful cottage, which immediately felt very homely, even with milk in the fridge and fresh farm eggs! Open the door and the...

We recently stayed at Highdown Farm, taking all 3 cottages for a family-gathering over 2 nights. The owners were exceptionally accommodating allowing us all to eat together in the large house. The rooms are pleasantly furnished with plenty of living space. The log fires are a real plus during the wet and cold. Just a shame we couldn't stay longer...

We stayed in The Cider Barn. First class accommodation and the special touches made our stay very comfortable. Very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful setting and views. We will definitely be going back and would definitely recommend that you go for a visit.

We stayed in Poormans Cottage on Highdown Farm for a week in the summer with our two children (aged 5 and 7). The cottage was lovely, very homely, with the comfiest beds we have ever slept in. We were particularly impressed by how well equipped the kitchen was. Plenty of plates and bowls, plus decent plastic crockery for the kids....

We couldn't have asked for more, the house was clean and comfortable, everything was provided. Sandra was very helpful and kind, she took my sons out for a ride on her Shetland pony, the kids loved the animals and the play area. I would do certainly go back again.

Stayed at the little cottage for 2 nights last week, cannot praise or recommend enough. Spotlessly clean, little personal touches, amazing views, wonderful hosts on a working farm, full of character but updated tasteful design. Peaceful and easy to get to, ideal base to explore area. Have already booked to go back later in the year. Well done Sandra and...

On our way to a wedding in Falmouth and booked the two bedroom cottage for one night. Beautifully prepared - attention to details eg fresh flowers, tea coffee milk and sugar. This was a delightful stay in a lovely location and the proprietor made us feel very welcome. Would love to have stayed longer.

We (6 adults & a toddler) stayed in The Old Farmhouse for a long weekend. The photos don't show how big it is - the lounge & kitchen are huge, the main bedroom is massive! It's very comfortable too & we appreciated the plentiful supply of fluffy towels. The house is well equipped with everything you need to have a...

My boyfriend and I came across Highdown Farm by chance on booking.com and decided to book it for a few nights on our first visit to Devon. When we arrived we couldn't believe how lucky we had been. We were welcomed by Sandra who is very friendly, helpful and always on hand if you need anything. She made us feel...
