    Great location, excellent amenities inside, clean and comfortable, what more could you want from a holiday cottage. Judith and Peter are very friendly and look after everything. We will be returning I'm sure of that.

  • "A fantastic cottage - quite simply the best we’ve stayed in and we’ve stayed in quite a few over the years!"

    A real home from home and the owner, Peter Bradley, went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed, including making a special trip to replace a cafetiere which we accidentally broke so that ‘we could have our breakfast coffee!’ Highly recommend this place.

  • "Very comfortable cottage ."

    Clean and well provided . The log burner was sealed shut and therefore unusable ...fortunately we did not need it . You should advise customers to make sure they have copious amounts of fly spray ..there we at least 10 in one of the bedrooms (yes we did have some with us predicting it was on a farm and that the windows would have been opened for airing during the pandemic . The owners were friendly and welcoming ....nice to have some eggs and a bottle of Prosecco left ( we do not drink alcohol ) but it will make a present for someone lol

    Cottage kept to a high standard, very modern and clean. Peter & Judith are excellent hosts, very attentive and ensuring you have everything. Lovely gifts left in the cottage to start us off which was nice. Garden is good size and enclosed which our dogs loved. Day trips very accessible with good transport links. TV could do with updating.

Very recommendable cottage, love to come back again... Well done ! Judith & Peter!

  • "The Furrow is a delight."

    Welcoming owners, who left a pretty jug of wild flowers, six eggs, and a bottle of very dry Prosecco, all of which were much appreciated. Everything was very clean. Spacious, neutral colours, good equipment and a general air of quality, not super-modern, but perfectly acceptable. The two bathrooms were well designed, with good facilities and well-lit. The heating was appreciated too, as we had cool rainy weather. The beds were very comfortable, and the sofas too. Don’t hesitate....this is a very good place to stay.

    The log burner provided a cosy end to an autumn evening and we enjoyed the dark skies from the property across the countryside.

  • "The owners made us feel very welcome without impacting social distancing."

    The cottage was lovely and homely, kitchen equipment was basic but assume this is related to COVID guidelines. Internet was really good, suggest upgrading to some form of TV package as this was limited. I would also suggest updating pictures as we thought a BBQ would be present as there was one in the picture but there wasn’t. Would definitely recommend as we had a lovely stay.

    The welcome was enhanced by milk, tea, coffee and eggs at hand and a lovely vase of flowers. The cottage is 5 star cleanliness and comfort and we all loved it. There is no dog walk at hand but Mr. B allowed us to walk the sheep fields with dog on lead when we were not exploring the wonderful local area. A book of "walks for all ages" was supplied and we made good use of it --plus Fingles Glen which he recommended. The local shop was useful for papers and most things, except wines and a supermarket is in Crediton a few miles away. Lovely facility giving an excellent base to explore Devon.

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of the pretty village of Tedburn St Mary is Great Huish Farm.

Approximately seven miles from the historic city of Exeter, this 40 acre sheep farm is just a short drive away from the north eastern edge of the Dartmoor National Park.

The original ploughman's quarters have been expertly converted from a 16th century long barn where the heavy horses were stabled, to two superb, adjoining holiday homes.

The Furrow, the larger of the two, retains much of the character of the original barn with ancient beams and sloping ceilings.

The living space is bright, airy and open plan, complete with wood burning stove and oak floors and encompasses a stylish kitchen area.

A winding staircase leads to two bedrooms, one of which has glazed doors overlooking the pony field below.

To the side of the property is a lovely secluded patio with garden furniture, this leads to a lawned garden, which is shared with its neighbour, The Yoke.
