“A perfect place to stay for all the family.”
Reviewed 19 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

What a wonderful time we had at Three Gates Farm. We had a family reunion and the location, facilities and general ambience pleased everyone. It's a gem of a place, hidden away in the beautiful mid Devon countryside. lWe had a warm welcome from Jonathan on arrival, a cream tea awaited us in our cottage and from then on it was pretty much a dream holiday. One thing that impressed us was the attention to detail, so many things that made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Top marks for the swimming pool, gym and sauna, so well maintained, the pool was heated to a perfect temperature, what a plus that was.
All in all it truly deserves a five star rating. We can't recommend it highly enough.

“Comfortable, relaxing & homely”

We stayed in the Long Barn with 2 children. It was ideal as it was on one level. It was very comfortable and even without a log fire (which we may not have lit anyway with a 2 year running around!) it was still snug and warm. Great place to relax and chill, let the kids off the leash and put our own feet up. Pool was great, warm and clean. We booked private swimming lessons and I was amazed how much our 5 year old progressed with the 1:1 attention. Owners were lovely - very welcoming and around if you needed them but otherwise left you alone. Some great National Trusts nearby and easy to drive to the north or south coasts for days out.

“fantastic site and location”

Three Gates is a collection of cottages a few miles north of Tiverton in Devon. We stayed in Long Barn with three bedrooms in a nice layout for our group. The barn was well equipped, warm on colder days (this is March after all).

The pool and playground on site were very well received by our four year old who spent many happy hours on both. She also enjoyed feeding the chickens and looking for eggs.

Overall a lovely holiday with lots to do which is exactly what we had hoped for. We'd certainly consider coming back again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

“Fantastic family cottage.”

We stayed for a winter and New Years break with two young children and grandparents. Fantastic layout and beautiful cottage yet still practical with little ones and very clean. Even milk in the fridge on arrival! The heated swimming pool was brilliant especially for rainy days and a good size with lots of pool toys available. Good base for exploring both Somerset and Devon. Hosts were friendly and approachable. My son is eager to go back and help feed the animals again.

“Perfect Holiday!!!”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We booked the cottage hoping for a lovely relaxing Christmas break - it was everything we hoped for and more!!
The cottage was large, well appointed and cosy.
The location was very nice with lovely views.
The indoor pool was very nice and kept us busy on rainy days!!!
The owners were very nice, our youngest child said the best bit of the holiday was when Jonathan took her to feed the chickens!!!
We found a couple of lovely country pubs to visit and everyone in the area was very welcoming.
We are looking forward to going back (hopefully in the summer) to make full use of the outdoor play area and to get the BBQ going.
