  • "What a fabulous cottage."

    Well stocked and had everything we needed. A gorgeous outside space that our little ones made full use of (when it wasn't raining) Comfy beds, well looked after cottage. Great location as a short drive to lots of lovely places. Really enjoyed our break. Fit our 8 person family in easily. Loved every minute. Could sit and watch the gorgeous cows in the field right outside the window. Owners were readily available if we needed anything. 5*

  • "The setting is beautiful and the cottage is as nice as the description on the website."

    We benefited from lovely weather so that we could sit outside on the comfortable patio and enjoy the beautifully planted garden and the distant views. We also enjoyed meeting the host and the new farm shop will be very useful.

  • "The views are stunning ."

    A real place for relaxation . The photos don’t all represent the furnishings most of which were budget . Sofa and beds not too comfortable . This is the first place I have been to in years without a welcome pint of milk at least . This will teach me to read the small print in future . Things that would help are sofas , fan assisted oven , an iron and hair dryer . A small welcome pack ( can be added to the cost) carpet on stairs threadbare in places . Divan beds not great, caused some back discomfort . No headboards .Some leaflets 3 years out of date . We sort of felt everything provided would do other than the wooden furniture which was great . That said, beautiful, peaceful surroundings and possibly more suited to people with children as the play facilities looked excellent

  • "A lovely property with everything that you need."

    The 2 and a half year old in our party loved the playground. The kitchen was very well equipped. We were celebrating Mother's day and a birthday so chose to cook a roast. We bought a Yorkshire pudding tin but everything else was there. There were plenty of towels, toilet rolls and toiletries left for us. We had a lovely time and would like to come back for a longer time.

  • "After a tricky start to our holiday we were delighted with our last minute booking at Corve Barn Farm."

    The barn is immaculate and the views are outstanding! The children loved the play area especially the trampoline and the guys loved the BBQ. The farm shop had a good selection off food snacks and gifts and tea and cake under the gazebo looking out over the hills was just lovely. Marge and family made us very welcome and helped us with anything we needed, thank you again and we hope to come back very soon

  • "Very clean and well equipped house."

    An abundance of towels and kitchen linen which was very useful and good to have. Bed linen was lovely too. Great garden area with play equipment and trampoline which the kids loved. We were very lucky to see newborn lambs and the owners very kindly let us go and see them each day.

  • "We were very happy with the accommodation."

    It was just about ok for us and our five children, especially with the brilliant outdoor space and the play area. The children had a wonderful time playing outside with the lovely views, as well as seeing the animals on the farm. The farmer was very friendly and allowed the children to come close as the lambs were being fed, which was lovely. Would highly recommend staying there, and there are loads of wonderful places to visit nearby! (Unfortunately, us adults had a more difficult time, as we had recently experienced a family bereavement at the same time as catching a nasty flu which we had for the entirety of the week - with five young children this made for an especially exhausting week! However, the accommodation was very comfortable as a place for us to recuperate, and the children had a great time in and around the place)

    Friendly advice about places to visit and lent us maps and suggested walks. Some of our party also got to visit parts of the farm and see young lambs being fed. A lovely weekend in a quiet, peaceful spot.
