The Experience

In the 70s the farm belonged to Hank Marvin and there are nods to him in the artwork – especially his signature red Fender Stratocaster. There’s an attractive blend of modern materials with oak beams, weathered bricks and local flint. The living space is high-ceilinged, light and airy with sumptuous cushions and throws, a flame electric fire, board games and large screen for watching TV or films.

Cooking is a breeze with a Neff oven and hob, plenty of space for prepping and a table big enough to invite friends over and you can have shopping delivered. If you need to work find the perfect alcove with a walnut desk. Through an open archway is a solid steel four-poster beneath a splendid vaulted ceiling and a William Holland bateau bath – for more modest souls there’s a separate wet room.

You’ll feel very private outdoors in the enclosed garden, not overlooked at all and with a Weber gas barbecue. Summer evenings are sublime.

Beautiful place to stay. Very relaxing, superb views. Incredibly dog friendly. Fantastic facilities and excellent specification

The neighbourhood

The long winding drive is almost half a mile past fields and footpaths until you reach the farm buildings – the owners' house and three other holiday cottages, some of which can be taken together. It's wonderful walking country and the nearest pub is 2 miles away. Honiton is 5 miles for independent shops, delis and cafés. River Cottage restaurant and store is 12 miles for great local food.

Alistair & Lorna Handyside

Alistair and Lorna have owned the farm for around 20 years. The cottages are run on an eco tourism basis and they have been given a Gold Award for Green Tourism. The biomass boiler produces all the heating and hot water for the cottages as well as the heated pool. They are always there to meet and greet and to show you into the annexe.
