    “A warm welcome with lovely little touches like fresh bread, butter and cheese all made locally.”

    water decanters in all the bedrooms was very welcomed. the beds were so clean, fresh and comfortable if i could have stuffed one in my bag to bring home i would have. we did a lot of walking, swimming and an array of other activities, i was exhausted by the evenings but these amazingly comfortable high class beds rested me well enough for the next days challenges with no problem. ...

    water decanters in all the bedrooms was very welcomed. the beds were so clean, fresh and comfortable if i could have stuffed one in my bag to bring home i would have. we did a lot of walking, swimming and an array of other activities, i was exhausted by the evenings but these amazingly comfortable high class beds rested me well enough for the next days challenges with no problem. very quiet area, the nearest beach is a pebble beach which was nice but we found Sidmouth beach far better for our beach days as it was the most beautiful sandy beach that was dog friendly. all the hustle and bustle of the beaches was exchanged for the beautiful peace and quiet of the countryside at night, we had the best of both worlds on our 7 day stay. mike and Louise were the perfect hosts, allowed us the privacy to enjoy our stay but always there if we needed them, mike provided us extra wood for the chimenea so we could enjoy late evenings outside. we highly recommend this beautiful old farmhouse with its inglenook fireplaces and a bath to die for. i've always rented cottages and farmhouses for my breaks but this one stands out for the sheer comfort and cleanliness. definitely a 5* property. thankyou mike & louise for an enjoyable week. julie & family
