“Had a fantastic time!”
Reviewed 17 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We had 16 people for my thirtieth birthday weekend - the house was lovely and we had a wonderful time. It is close to amenities including a nice pub. The kitchen was modern and clean, the hot tub was hot and the rooms nice and comfortable.

However, there are a couple of things that could have improved our stay. The building manager and Choice holidays were unavailbale at 17:15 on the Saturday. The office was closed and the manager not available at any of the numbers given. She told me the day before that she was on holiday but as there was a power short on the property i wanted to know the location of the fusebox. For the hot tub the fusebox was eventually found behind some insulation in the loft. I left messages but noone returned my call. Also it was a very wet weekend and water was running down the chimneys in both the kitchen and the dining room. there was also some mildew in the downstairs bathroom and major damp in other parts of the house. the damp should be looked at.

I still recommend the house and the stay was great but the care from choice cottages could be improved and leniency regarding a 10am kick out could be reviewed? we moved out for 10am sharp and 2 hours later the cleaners hadn't come. it might have been nice to have a leisurely sunday brunch in the house...

“Amazing fantastic property in sunny north Devon.”
Reviewed 11 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Just returned from a fantastic stay at Poyers Farmhouse, the property is amazing and provided very comfortable accommodation for 6 adults and 6 children. The accommodation is superb with wooden and slate floors through the living area. The dining room is a real bonus, with a table easily big enough to accommodate 14 or more, along with a fabulous wood burning stove set in the massive fireplace. The lounge is lovely and cosy with another wood burning stove, while the kitchen is a real joy.
We used the hot-tub every day, sometimes 3 or 4 times and it stayed perfectly clear. Not sure what all the fuss is about from some of the other reviews.
The area is also really nice, with the Tarka Trail just a short walk away and a large duck pond where the children enjoyed feeding the ducks and swans each day. Then a short drive away are three fantastic beaches - Saunton, Croyde and Putsborough with some amazing surf.
Trip Advisor only allows a rating of 5, but would easily give this 10/10 and hope to come back again soon.

“Amazing holiday house, will definately stay there again!”
Reviewed 11 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We've just got back from a wonderful holiday at Poyers Farmhouse. The house is amazing, so much character and charm. The location is only a few miles from some wonderful beaches and also its right on the Tarka cycling trail. The house is very well equiped and extremely well looked after. It has some lovely finishing touches, like games for the children and also a hot tub! I would definately recommend it and will definately be staying here again

Had a fantastic long weekend, stunning house, very spacious and comfortable. Great heat from the wood-burning stoves when we came back from the beach. Marvellous dining room, plenty of space for everyone to eat.

“The whole family under one roof :-)”
Reviewed 2 July 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We rented this property to get the family together for my husband's 65th birthday party. with 3 of our own grown-up children, each with their partners and 7 grandchildren aged from 10 to baby, this has been no easy task in the past. This property was fantastic!

The house was well proportioned with plenty of space to accommodate everyone without it feeling crowded. Being able to seat everyone together at the large dining table was a real highlight. The kitchen also was well equipped to make catering for a group of this size easy.
The hot-tub was a real asset with all 3 generations enjoying it in their own way!

The local beaches were just a short distance from the property and enjoyed by all. The tarka trail was within easy reach. The kids loved taking scooters and roller skates along the trail feeding the ducks at the nature reserve a short distance along the trail.

We look forward to heading back to Poyers Farm in the future.
