Wyke Farm Cottages and B&B
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2013

My new husband and I spent one night here last weekend as we had bought a night at River Cottage as a first week anniversary for ourselves. It was fantastic. The rooms were spotless, massive and decorated simply and stylishly. We'd been finding it tough to find affordable BnB's that weren't covered in awful paintings, dark curtains and floral bedsheets. Wyke Farm has a perfect contemporary aesthetic. The buildings have been beautifully restored and we felt like we were a million times away from everything. The cooked breakfast was non-greasy, delicious, fresh, and homemade from local ingredients. I can't recommend this place enough and wish we'd had a full weekend to enjoy it.

Room Tip: We had the room closest to the breakfast room, it was huge and had a fantastic bathroom and great sh...

We stayed one night before visiting River Cottage the following day. The room was huge and beautifully presented and not at all what you would expect from 'bed and breakfast'. The farm is in a most idyllic spot with some stunning views and Kathryn and her husband were just lovely. We will definitely be staying again when we are in the area.

We stayed only one night here, but would definitely return: the rooms are lovely - large, perfectly furnished and modern, but set in a real working farm in a lovely rural setting, only a few minutes from Axminster.
Kathryn, the owner, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about things to see and do in the local area.
In addition the breakfast was gorgeous, especially the eggs which were, of course, freshly-laid on-site!

We spent one night here. We have a 3yr old & a 16mth old. We had a self contained space of the Shippon which comprised a king sized double & a twin bedroom with space for a travel cot. We had a Private bathroom too. Kathryn couldn't have been more helpful in organising g our stay & was thoughtful in supplying baby friendly essentials such as high chairs, toddler cutlery, & hot chocolate at breakfast! We particularly appreciated the time Kathryn took to show our children the lambs... Our boys loved feeding them & the adventure of walking up to their field. The welcome we received from Kathryn's husband was great after a 7hr journey... Bright smiles & waving! We loved Wyke farm & hope to return. Our only grumble was that we couldn't stay longer! Thank you.

The accommodation is amazing, built from a barn, light, modern and beautifully furnished. The rooms are huge, we had one with an extra twin bed and one with a sofa bed. Each room opens onto a courtyard, and you can walk around the farm, we enjoyed visiting the chickens and sheep! Breakfast was delicious, a huge variety and set us up for the day. Kathryn is a wonderful host, friendly and extremely helpful with local knowledge. There is a lovely view from the farm of the rolling hills, it is just beautiful and you instantly feel relaxed. There is a lovely two or three bed cottage that would make a perfect retreat, we will definitely be coming back.
Myself and my family were in the UK from Canada, we have travelled extensively in Canada, US and UK, this is the best place we have ever stayed, it was the highlight of our trip this year!

Spent 3 lovely days at Wyke Farm. The place is ideal for visiting the surrounding area, which is rich and varied. Kathryn and John are wonderful hosts and the accommodation impeccable. If you need to find somewhere to stay in the area, you could not do better than Wyke farm. Breakfast was lovely and consisted of locally sourced produce. The stay was summed up by my 7 year old daughter "I love it here, Can we stay forever"

We have had a lovely two nights at Wyke Farm. The spacious, beautifully presented room meant that we had a very relaxing stay. Kathryn could not have been more helpful, arranging and checking the taxi for us and providing lovely breakfasts. The views from outside the farm were stunning in the glorious weather we had. The standards are high and this place deserves to do well!

Room Tip: We had a side door as well as the large glass doors to the farm which meant we could see the gloriou...
