  • "Comfy beds, hot showers, lovely hot tub."

    All the condiments, tea, coffee, milk and little welcome items very much appreciated. Everything you'd need for your dog if you'd forgotten anything. Loved the walks from the doorstep - you are warned it's hilly! Saw lots of deer and other wildlife. Large sofa is v soft and u sink into it, a little odd that the wall mounted telly is so off centre but it didn't affect viewing. Would have been ideal to have some larger glasses and non-plastic pasta bowls and we did struggle to dry our swim wear, hot tub towels and wet weather gear at the same time. There is an airer in the cleaning cupboard and the wash down hut was useful! Would visit again.

    Thankyou for your lovely review. We really enjoyed hosting you & glad that you saw our beautiful wildlife. Your thoughts are very helpful & we shall put some thought to the drying of towels, larger glasses & plastic pasta bowls. You are welcome back anytime. Property Owner

Thorne Farm Estate

This historic, 17th century former estate has been lovingly converted into two well-equipped barn conversions, situated in the grounds of Thorne Farm Estate within 250 acres, amidst the beautiful mid Devon countryside. Set in a secluded valley, this is a superb walking location and there’s even a chance to spot wild red deer, hares, swallows and woodpeckers, immersing yourself in a wildlife haven just a few steps from the cottage door. The house contains a quirky interior with exposed stonework, wooden beams and vaulted ceilings dating back hundreds of years, whilst the south facing aspect gives it a light and airy feel. Outside, each of the cottages come with an enclosed courtyard garden with hot tub and furniture, plus there is a nearby paddock where you can watch the horses take on the jumps. The estate lends itself to many walks whilst the surrounding area is characterised by rolling hills and scattered woodland. The nearby village of Stoodleigh is home to a charming pub, The Stoodyleigh Inn, where you can end your evenings with a well-earned glass of vino. Head into Bampton to find your nearest convenience store, or stop off at the National Trust landmarks of Knightshayes Gardens and Knightshayes Court on your way into Tiverton, which is also accessible by car. Thorne Farm Estate provides a relaxing retreat to Mid Devon.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
