Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

October 2023 We have just returned from a short stay at pebble ridge, Hill Farm Cottages, Torrington and I have to say it was one of the best places we have booked in over 40 years of family holidays. We were with our son and his little girl and our dogs and Hill Farm had everything we could possibly need. The cottage was very well equipped (especially the kitchen), spotlessly clean and comfortable. The The pool (which you booked for a private session) was lovely and warm. The games room had lots to entertain from babies to teenagers. The feeding the animals session held every morning was thoroughly enjoyed by our grand daughter (actually we all enjoyed it). The cottages are walkable into Torrington, there was some nice woods and common nearby for walking our two dogs and there were many attractions within relatively short drives. All in all we had a lovely time and will definitely return.

Mick & Julie have and continue to put so much hard work into Hill Farm Cottages. The accommodation is really good and has everything that you need to get you started on a self catering holiday. All those small things that you usually need to purchase was readily available like cling film, bin bags, washing up liquid, kitchen roll, doggie treats and poop bags and much more. These little touches go a long way for me. Julie, Mick and we can’t forget Tiff all do such a great job, and are always available if you need anything. Nothing seems too much trouble.

Hill Farm is set up perfectly for little family getaways such as ours. The accommodation is cosy and well equipped, mixing a rural surrounding with modern equipment and facilities. We found it a wonderful environment to stay in, both to while away a morning before a trip out to the coast, or to return to in an evening after a day's exploring. To have use of the games room and the swimming pool was a real treat and in terms of amenities this certainly sets Hill Farm Cottages apart from the local competition. We'll be sure to make a return visit again very soon and would like to thank Mike and Julie for a lovely stay.

Hill Farm Cottages is a magical peaceful place, the photos don't do it justice. My husband, 2.5yr old and I had a great week in Pebble Ridge. The cottage has everything you need, we had the pool to ourselves everyday and my son loved feeding the animals n the morning with Mike and Julie. The location is perfect for exploring North Devon beaches, but also convenient for supermarkets etc. In Great Torrington and Bideford. The only negative for us was that the mattresses were all quite soft, but that is personal choice. We hope to come and stay again.

We visited Hill Farm cottages at the end of July for our fourth visit and it was another brilliant stay. We stayed in Landcross cottage which has been refurbished since our last stay, the accommodation is of a very high standard and is equipped with everything you need. Mick & Julie are fabulous hosts and do all they can to ensure you have a great stay. Even though our children are older now (10 & 13) they still loved coming back to Hill Farm, when not out and about they really enjoyed swimming in the pool, playing pool in the games room and seeing the animals. We had great days out on the beaches at Saunton sands and Northam Burrows and crabbing in Appledore & visiting Instow. Hiring bikes and cycling along the tarka trail was another highlight. I cannot recommend Hill Farm cottages enough for family holidays.

Just back from a fabulous holiday at Hill Farm Cottages - what an amazing place and the hosts Mick and Julie were so lovely. We stayed at Landcross cottage with our 2 daughters (7 and 4), the cottage was nicely presented with all amenities thought of. We received a lovely welcome and were made to feel very comfortable. Our children loved feeding the animals and thoroughly enjoyed having a pool on site to swim every day. The cottages are set in ample grounds with lots to do. It really is a fantastic place for young and old. Hill Farm Cottages is brilliantly located with beaches close by - Saunton Sands, Bude and Westwood Ho! are firm favourites. We hope to be back - thank you Mick and Julie for a great holiday.

What a fabulous week at Hill Farm Cottages! We cannot thank Mick and Julie enough for being so welcoming, friendly and fantastic with our children. We stayed in Beam Weir which was clean, spacious and very well equipped. There was a full size wooden cot, high chair and plastic plates etc for little ones. We borrowed a night light and bathroom step as forgot ours! The indoor swimming pool is fabulous and we swam everyday! Our childrens confidence and swimming has improved immensely in the week! The daily animal feeding was a massive highlight for our children aged 8,4 and 2. Mick and Julie devote so much time to their animals and we have loved getting to know them. Bentley the foal, Dolly the Shetland, Domino the sheep, Tina the Turkey, Pepper the goat were some of our favourites! We were very excited to meet 1 day old Guinea pigs on Friday! They also let the children help collect eggs one day which we took back and enjoyed for breakfast. We were blessed with fabulous weather so enjoyed lots of beach days at Saunton, Instow and Westwood Ho. We also enjoyed crabbing in Appledore and the Gnome reserve at Merry Harriers Garden Center. And of course a Hockings ice cream at any opportunity! The accommodation, facilities, location and hosts have all been perfect and we cannot wait to come back next year! Thank you Mick and Julie, you are both doing an amazing job xxx

Our first visit to Hill Farm Cottages, and it certainly wont be the last. We absolutely loved it. Mick and Julie made us feel so welcome from the very first minute as we met them in reception. Once we had been given time to unpack and settle in, they came to see us properly in our cottage which was a lovely touch. The little courtyard of 5 holiday cottages plus Mick and Julies cottage really is a special place. The animals, and swimming pool, plus the recent addition of the BBQ hut, meant that was always something to do even when the weather wasn't perfect. One of our girls actually said "it's like visiting relatives with Mick and Julie, rather than just going to a normal holiday lodge with a key left in a lockbox" which surely is praise indeed. They are great hosts and a lovely couple, who couldn't do enough to help and make our stay as nice as possible. Would highly recommend, lots of lovely places to visit all within a short drive. We will be back.

Can't praise Hill Farm enough as a holiday venue. We have visited many times and every time we arrive we immediately feel relaxed. Mick and Julie are the most fantastic hosts, they really do try to make sure every guest has a fantastic holiday. Daily animal feeding is always fun for the children. The pool is brilliant and ideal in wet weather along with the games room. The cottages are always exceptionally clean and have really benefitted from the recent first class makeovers with lovely kitchens and bathrooms. We always sleep really well as the beds are so comfortable! Great Torrington itself is a brilliant location. There's loads to do locally and lots of nice pubs in the area for meals out. The beaches are a short drive and other attractions are very quick and easy to get to. 100% recommend Hill Farm Cottages. We can't wait to go back!

What a fantastic venue. Just had a long weekend at Hill Farm with our Son, daughter In-law and two year old grandson, the statement Fantastic, doesn’t do it justice. The accommodation is first class, The facilities are great, games room, indoor pool which is lovely and warm, animals of all shapes, breeds and sizes to intrigue children and adults, and Mick who will quite happily take children along each morning to help with the feeding. The location is great for trips out to places like Westwood Ho and Clovelly to name just two and a walking distance local for great food and drink.
