“Lovely cottage retreat”
Reviewed September 17, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This little cottage was the perfect destination for our holiday. We arrived to find a lovely decorated, clean cottage with the added bonus of a hot tub outside with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. We felt very welcomed throughout our stay and even sampled some of the produce reared on the farm which was delicious! We would recommend this cottage to anyone and will be back soon for more sausages!!

“Perfect tranquility”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A perfect spot in the Devonshire countryside. I have been here twice in the last three months. Once with my partner and once with my mum. Absolutely idyllic. A perfect place to getaway to relax, to walk, to joy the countryside. Also a great spot to be based at to explore parts of the Jurassic Coastal path.

Recommend the bacon and bread that is home grown at little Snodwell.

Also thoroughly recommend the suggestion to visit Beer and have fish and chips there.

Caren and Martin are wonderful hosts who are happy to help out with any extras and have a great knowledge of the best places to go on your trip.

I will certainly be returning!

“Relaxing stay in a gorgeous setting”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely organic farm. The cottage had everything we needed, was very clean, and has stunning views over the rolling hills of Devon. Toddler friendly, but had to take our own travel cot. Enjoyed walking around on the farm and looking at all the animals. The owners are very friendly and helpful. You can purchase some of their organic produce which was delicious! Pork sausages will never taste the same again! The highlight must be sitting in the hot tub! We will be back again..........hopefully soon.

“Perfect Mini Moon”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We came to Snodwell farm for some rest and relaxation after Marrying on the 21st June. It was the prefect destination for a short break and Caron was fantastic. Not only did she provide us with a warm welcome but also a delicious cream tea for two!
The apartment overlooks the farm and across to the rolling hills behind.
Of course our personal highlight was the hot tub in the garden which we climbed into at Sunset with a glass of sparkling in hand. Does not get much more romantic than that !

“Pure Bliss”

person found this review helpful

Upon our arrival we were greeted by Martin who was very welcoming and informative, we was given a tour of Snodwell farm and the annex. The cottage is lovely, cosy and clean it has an extremely peaceful atmosphere, seeing the animals everyday was a delight. Fresh scones, clotted cream and jam were all provided when we arrived and were delicious! Location wise Snodwell is brilliant - close to Beer, Seaton and Sidmouth which are all lovely places me and my partner visited throughout our 2 day stay. The hot tub is extremely relaxing and has fantastic views - available at any time. The farm shop next door is a little treat and good for buying some treats/gifts to take back home. At the end of our stay we purchased some organic hens eggs from Caren & Martin which were very yummy, we were even given 2 complimentary duck eggs! Overall we throughly enjoyed our stay and could not fault Little Snodwell Farm is anyway! Both Caren and Martin are lovely hosts couldn't ask for better

“Perfect little break”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We spent a few nights here for a midweek break. In brief: lovely, welcoming, charming, great!

Caren was an extremely welcoming and helpful host. She gave us recommendations for local pubs and places to see as well as an introduction to their charming little farm. The animals were friendly; it was lovely to hear the ducks quacking away through the kitchen window. On our first morning we opened the annex door to find some (delicious!) produce from their animals waiting for us in a cool bag. The sausages were extremely yummy for breakfast.

The area has plenty to offer, with Exeter, beaches, market towns, pubs and things to do all within a short drive. The farm is a great place to hang out too, strolling through the wood, by the lake or around the animals.

The hot tub was a main reason for booking - my wife absolutely insisted! It was available at any time, always beautifully warm and cosy. On our first two nights we enjoyed a clear night sky with the Milky Way twinkling above us. On the last night we watched the sun set over the rural vista, with the birds flying across the purple-orange skyscape. A couple of glasses of wine, music from the integrated radio/sound system - perfect.

The annex is a perfect size for a couple, with an extremely comfy bed, decent shower room, cute kitchen and amazing view through the picture window of the lounge/dining room out across the scenery. The farm is straightforward to find from the main roads nearby. Honiton is close for provisions but the location is still rural and quiet. Rate is very good value.

We loved Little Snodwell. Caren, the hot tub and the scenery were highlights especially. We hope to return later in the year, it's a great little find.

“Beautiful, peaceful and friendly”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The annex at Little Snodwell Farm is so peaceful, very comfortable and nicely furnished.We stayed here for its location to a nearby skydive centre and it made for a perfect weekend for us. Caren welcomed us when we arrived and offered lots of useful local information. The beautiful views, visiting the animals and bubbles in the hot tub were highlights making our stay so much more enjoyable than hotel accommodation. We also really enjoyed a meal at a local pub, The Tuckers Arms which Caren recommended and kindly booked for us. Overall a fab experience and we hope to return again this year!
