We stayed for two nights B & B in one of the family suites. The main room was huge (compared to what I am used to at home!) and well equipped with tea, coffee, biscuits and a fridge. Whilst my son is past this stage, this would have been immensely useful for someone staying with a smaller child who is still having lots of milk. There was also a microwave for warming it in. There was a separate good sized room with bunk beds in for the kids. This was part of what drew me to Smallicombe as many other family rooms simply offered a single bed squashed into a double room that is really too small for it. It also enabled us to close the door and relax in our own space once little one was asleep. Good sized, very clean bathroom with a roll top bath which was a nice treat for me. On arrival, we received a very warm welcome and a special greeting from the dog. Owners were fantastic at keeping the dogs away when they could see me son was nervous around them. Lovely dining room for breakfast and lots of choice. Would definitely recommend the sausages but lighter choices availble for those that want it. My son had a special place setting with kids crockery, cutlery and mat which was a nice touch and made it a bit more special for him. The tea and toast ran freely and nothing was too much trouble, even disposing of a very annoying wasp! Each morning everyone in the dining room was asked what they were doing that day and offered advice and even discount tickets on where they were going. We were also given very good directions when we asked for them. Although Smallicombe can seem a bit out of the way, it was a really easy and surprisingly quick drive to the main road so everything was easily accessible whilst still having the pleasure of being completely away from it all in a really beautiful part of Devon. We didn't have time on this trip to enjoy the farm as much as we would have liked but my son has told us that 'next time when we come to stay' he might like to help with the animals. Would definitely recommend.
