“Relaxing and peaceful atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed at Pond cottage with my wife and 6 year old son between the 24th May - 31st May 2015.
The owners John and Renate are very passionate in their work on the farm and ensure their guests feel very welcome.
Pond cottage is a lovely converted 2 bedroom cottage which is very clean and comfortable with all the mod cons along with a wood burning stove. There are fantastic views across the open Devon countryside.
The cottage is set within acres of the owners farmland and orchards which you are free to roam around and explore.
We enjoyed some day's of sunshine during our stay and used the swimming pool and BBQ.
We love Devon and visit at least once a year and I'm sure we will return to this cottage in the future.
Many thanks John and Renate for a fab week.

“Wonderful Devon retreat”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Although the weather was mixed for our week-long stay at Pond Cottage (what did we expect for August in the UK?), we all had a great time! Our young girls particularly enjoyed themselves, feeding the ducks and geese, exploring the farm, and swimming in the lovely pool. The cottage is also good base for exploring the local Devon area too (although we did have trouble tearing ourselves away from the cottage, which is luxurious I might add). Many thanks to Renata and John who were extremely warm hosts, and very patient with our girls unending stream of questions about the farm. We look forward to staying at Pond Cottage again one day!

“Great venue for a peaceful, comfortable and restful stay”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have just returned from a great stay in this lovely cottage. There were three of us, one of us being 90 years young, and we all agree that the cottage suited our requirements perfectly. Lovely fitted kitchen with every convenience, comfortable beds in large bedrooms with quality furnishings in the ensuite bedrooms.
Renate and John, the owners (and their chickens and ducks) are very welcoming and friendly and the farm's rural location is simply gorgeous. The lanes leading from the cottage are not for the faint-hearted but once they were negotiated we found the location to be central for both North and South coasts and for forays to inland locations like Buckfast Abbey, Barnstaple and Bideford.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from an amazing week at Pond Cottage. The cottage was truly a home from home and the views of picturesque Devon were amazing. The farm setting is great for kids and they especially loved the pool. John and Renate made us feel so welcome and we are definitely going to book again in the future.

“Amazing, amazing, amazing!!!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Have just got back from a 3night stay. This cottage is such a beautiful, tranquil place. We are sitting here wishing we were back in the lovely sitting area surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside.
Such lovely, welcoming hosts. Who always had time to chat and show us round their beautiful grounds.
Our daughter (4yrs) was sad to leave. She loved it so much especially seeing the baby frogs and watching the some 200 sheep being led into a different field.
Can't wait to return, hoping Therel b a free week left this year.
Highly recommended xx
