Our three-generational family of seven stayed in the Dairy and the Swallows for three nights recently. It was perfect, as the grandparents could have their separate space to retire to (in the Swallows), but we could gather for daily activity and for a barbecue in the garden of the Dairy. Gordon and Liz made us feel quite welcome in every way; Liz even invited my two young horse lovers to help her feed the horses in the evening! We enjoyed the pool, the tennis courts, the lovely view, and the cozy cottages. They also gave us excellent dinner recommendations (The Holt in Honiton and the Ship Inn in Axmouth), and steered us toward a cliffside walk in Beer, which we all enjoyed at our different paces. :-) We're quite happy to recommend this place and would love to return!
