We stayed for 4 nights in June. The cottage is full of character and charm. It has everything you could need, including a particularly well equipped kitchen.

Siobhan and Tim were very thoughtful and welcoming hosts, including chocolates on the bed, jam, clotted cream and scones for a traditional Devon cream tea! Plenty of coffee options too!
Would recommend to friends and family, and definitely plan to return soon.

“Cosy country cottage in the heart of Devon”
Reviewed 31 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

From the moment you step inside this delightful period cottage you immediately realise that you should have booked for longer. It feels like each piece of furniture and artwork has been specially tailor made for HOF because they effortlessly blend together like Devonshire clotted cream and strawberry jam on a scone. A lot of effort has gone into making this place stand out from the rest, not least in the kitchen and bathroom where beautiful knotted wooden benchtops and window sills have been expertly molded into the unusual nooks and crannys that adorn this cottage and make best use of the limited space available to work with. There has been no expense spared on the mod cons either, every room is centrally heated and has individual handheld controllers for adjusting the temperature and a whole lot of other things I didn't quite understand, in fact I wouldn't be surprised if it also operated the TV and coffee machine! The cottage has everything you need for a home away from home, including a quaint little garden which we couldn't enjoy due to the time of year we were there. I'd also like to mention that the hosts Tim, Shuv and Doombar are super friendly and will bend over backwards to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. One final note, I'd recommend the fish and chips on Monday nights at the Green Dragon pub just up the road from the HOF!

“Outstanding cozy cottage”
Reviewed 1 July 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Prior reviews accurately praise the meticulous and delightful details in every corner, nook and cranny of this cottage. The owners have thought of everything to enhance the joy of their guests. We loved the kitchen especially.....so small, yet so functional. The pub up the hill is super friendly and not at all a far walk. Highly recommend this cottage.

Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This cottage is perfect in every way. The kitchen has everything you need and the bathroom has made me want to reproduce it at home. The owners have thought of everything with incredible attention to detail.

Very close to a great little pub, although up a bit of a hill.

This cottage is a real gem.

Stayed here for four days in March. Attention to detail is amazing and the towels are so thick and lovely! We had so many goodies on our arrival, homemade scones, homemade jam, homemade bread, clotted cream, bottle of wine from the local vineyard, eggs and milk. Kept us going for our stay. Plenty to do within a short drive and lovely walks from the cottage across the many fields! Hope to return.
