“Perfect child and dog friendly Devon farm holiday”
Reviewed July 8, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Our second visit to Hornshayne Farm and it won't be our last. A beautiful, clean and well equipped farmhouse in idyllic countryside setting with wonderful views, walks and river fun. Ideal for large multi generation family groups and dog friendly. Run by very welcoming family and lots to be involved with on the working farm. Lots of family friendly things to see and do within 30 minute drive including beaches and the nearby town of Honiton is ideal for supermarket supplies and anything else you may need.

“An oasis of calm and tranquility at the end of the M5 for the family”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This delightful farmhouse offers an excellent holiday for an extended family group or groups of families. The outdoor space, with its wooden fort and slides and sandpit are ideal for children up to age 10. There is table tennis and a pool table for older children. The first day we just stayed on the property and enjoyed the outdoor space. Then you can go and look at the calves and chickens and have a conducted tour by the Hurford family.

“Fantastic farm experience”
Reviewed May 7, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had a fantastic holiday in the beautiful setting of this Devon farm. The owners were very hospitable. The children really enjoyed being involved with farm life including giving milk to the cows and even seeing a calf being born. The facilities are great and full of character. A lovely week away.

“Fabulous well equipped property”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We loved staying at Hornshayne farmhouse for the week. It was immaculate and clean and very well equipped for children.

The owners were lovely showed around the maternity pen and the baby calves which went down well with the children.

Would love to visit again, we are missing Maud already!

“Wonderful large house in Devon”

people found this review helpful

Just back from a wonderful long weekend in Devon. We needed a large house for extended family and it didn't disapoint. Enough beds and plenty of living space for us all. Well equipped kitchen and really felt like going from home to home. The extra touches really go a long way, children's books, toys, Wellys to borrow at the back door, ride on toys, the best fort our little one has played on with sandpit too! A tour to see the baby calves with the farmer's sons and the owners letting us know more had been born that night made us feel very welcome. Just 30 mins from Lyme Regis and farm land all around, perfect. We will certainly be back and if you're looking for a large property with space for everyone you won't go wrong with this place

“Fabulous house in a lovely rural location”
Reviewed January 10, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

This is the second time we've stayed at Hornshayne Farm with our two groups of friends, and again for New Year. It did not disappoint. The facilities of the house itself are excellent - plenty of seats in the kitchen and living room, good equipment in the kitchen, as well as lovely bedrooms. The two real highlights, however, are the excellent rural location (great walks!) but above all being located on a working farm. The owners (and their children) are so welcoming and helpful and positively encourage you to take an active interest in the farm. For our children to help with the milking and see 3 calves being born was a real highlight - priceless in fact. We all cannot wait for our next visit and another relaxing break.

Thank you very much for your kind feedback, welcome back. We are so delighted to hear that you have enjoyed Hornshayne Farm on both occasions. What a treat for the children to experience the farm in such a way, I imagine that this holiday will bring back fond memories for years to come.

This is our second visit to Hornshayne Farm and was equally as enjoyable as the first. This is one of the nicest houses we have stayed in, as a group of 9 that have been getting together every year for 15 years! The accommodation is very comfortable and suits our group well; with plenty of space and well laid out bedrooms. We have 3 boys amongst us, all of whom had a wonderful time on the farm; being entertained by the owners boys; playing hide and seek, watching calves being born, helping to milk the cows and even having a go at tractor driving......the owners and farmers could not have been more accommodating. For the adults, the house is set in the most beautiful countryside where you are free to walk and enjoy some of the most amazing views; a very relaxing and tranquil setting. Thank you for a very enjoyable week, we were all sad to be leaving and can't wait to come back!
