  • "The Corn Tallet was one of the very best properties that we have stayed in, It was very clean, comfortable and very well equipped."

    I cannot praise it highly enough!

    Mrs HibberdOct 2021

  • "A clear sign directing us to the designated parking space would have been helpful."

    Mrs ButcherSep 2021

  • "Lovely accommodation, spacious, well equipped and very comfortable."

    The Corn Tallet overlooks the farmyard, we enjoyed watching the sheep outside the window and we were not woken early like other reviews have stated. Dog friendly and although no enclosed garden it has a green area out the back with a very handy washing line. You can also walk your dog across the farmer’s land as long as on the lead. Pool was great and quite warm, even in the rain! The pool rota was good but was a shame we couldn’t use the pool when we arrived as we were looking forward to a swim after a long journey. The gentleman farmer was always friendly and very helpful. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "We have been before so we knew what to expect hence "met expectations" Dont want to tell people how good it is so we can keep it to ourselves, but it's only fair to say we love it."

    Mr BrooksJun 2021

  • "Very well equipped cottage, is on a working farm so not great if your not an early riser."

    Great location for exploring North Devon.

    Miss TurrellJun 2021

  • "Full account was given to the covid19 recommendations with regard to the cottage and use of the swimming pool."

    social distancing was observed at all times. We have holidayed at this venue, staying in all of the cottages at some time or another and this holiday was as good as ever. Plenty of places to visit nearby or within easily accessible distance. A good base for activities in Devon/Cornwall and a place to relax and be comfortable if staying in.

    Mrs QuelchMay 2021

  • "Lovely spacious cottage surrounded by fields, also close to local supermarket."

    Really friendly owners too. However we stayed there in April which is lambing season, although it does state in the details that the property is situated on a working farm, this didn’t prepare us for the noise, unfortunately we didn’t sleep well, so for this reason we are not planning a return visit unfortunately.

    Miss CharlesApr 2021

  • "The Corn Tallet is very well appointed, the kitchen particularly."

    Other facilities are good and the beds very comfortable. Overall it is an excellent place to stay.

    Dr ScruttonOct 2020

  • "Communication was good via email about what to do and expect."

    Even though on a farm it was lovely and quiet. Fairly central for travelling to different areas . Good base . Large property. Didn’t use pool or picnic areas due to time of year .

    Mrs MoynhamSep 2020

  • "We had a lovely short break in this very large, comfortable property."

    Situated on a very quiet, secluded working farm, it was hard to believe that the town of Bideford was only 10 minutes away by car. Although we didn't meet the owners, they sent excellent clear and useful communications before and during our stay. Would happily stay here again when visiting the area in the future.
