“5 STAR ACCOMMODATION IN 5 STAR SURROUNDINGS”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My wife, our 2 children (18 months & 6 years), Father & Mother-in-law returned from our week stay just over a week ago and i can honestly say its one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had......despite attempts from hurricane Bertha to ruin it!

The accommodation is of an exceptionally high standard and perfectly in keeping with the house and surroundings. It is equipped with a full variety of appliances to make the stay that much easier and all of a very high quality...including WiFi.

My eldest son (whom has Autism) enjoyed the opportunity to feed the various animals (sheep, chickens & cows) it certainly was a highlight of the holiday seeing him get so much from it.

The owners Sandra & Robert are so friendly and could not do enough for us, both prior to arrival, with all our questions and during our stay.

The surrounding area and countryside is beautiful, we went on many day trips to the coast and surrounding places, each as beautiful as the next.

We would certainly return again next year and have no hesitation recommending this accommodation to anyone.

“The most wonderful and relaxing holiday imaginable”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 for a stay in August 2013

We have visited the farm every year for the past ten years and, without fail, Sandra and Robert have been the most wonderful, kind hosts who always seem to have time to chat with us and make us feel at home. That said, they are never intrusive and completely appreciate their guests' privacy. The farm is located in the most tranquil, picturesque setting, and the cottage has always been extremely comfortable and beautifully clean. Visiting Northcott Barton has been the highlight of our year every time we have been there and our daughters have never tired of it. They always love helping Sandra and Robert with the animals - sheep, calves, hens, and we have all enjoyed exploring the farm and local countryside, which is absolutely lovely. There is plenty to do in the area; both Exmoor and Dartmoor are within easy reach and the beautiful North Devon beaches are not far away.

“Beautiful setting and a warm welcome.”
Reviewed 13 January 2014 for a stay in July 2013

A very comfortable and clean farmhouse in a tranquil setting away from any road noise. We took our 2 children and our family dog and have visited several years in a row. We love returning each year to see Sandra and Robert, who are so friendly. The children love helping around the farm each morning, they have fed sheep and cows, lambs and calves, some with bottles, fed chickens, collected eggs, seen chicks hatch, helped herd cows and sheep, weighed out different types of grain, looked at the tractors and stroked the cats and sheep dog, who also rounds up cattle. They are always excited to see what animals are in the farmyard when we arrive. We have all walked in the fields and the woods and had meals in the lovely garden. Tourist advice is readily available, though due to the tranquil setting, you do need a car to visit attractions. The house is lovely, has everything you could need and very comfortable beds! There are 2 upstairs bedrooms and 1 downstairs, there is also a bathroom downstairs as well as upstairs. The views of the garden and fields are lovely and the only sounds are of the animals. We can't wait to return in 2014.

“Lovely cottage in fabulous surroundings and with very welcoming hosts”

person found this review helpful

This is a wonderful place to stay in a beautiful location -for us it has become almost a second home, having been there many years running! The cottage is very comfortable, clean and well-equipped and whilst surrounded by wonderful countryside, is within reach of many local attractions, beaches, walking and cycling routes. The owners, Rob and Sandra, are very welcoming and friendly and our two children have always loved being out and about with them on the farm, helping to feed the animals. We have had a great holiday every time.

“Fantastic holiday, peaceful surroundings, wonderful people”
Reviewed 2 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We had a fantastic weeks stay during the Easter holidays with our two sons (4 and 7), and were made to feel very welcome. We really enjoyed feeding the sheep, hens, lambs and calves each morning.

The cottage is amazing well kept, well furnished and fitted out - from the dishwasher and washing machine through to the wood burning stove. You're staying in the middle of the farm, surrounded by the orchard and pastures - you really feel secluded from the rest of the world, which is just what we needed.

You obviously need your own transport to get around Devon - most of the local attractions are a good 20-30 minutes drive away, however Sandra can give you a good low down on what's happening in the local area while you're there.
