We stayed in Kineton cottage with our two sons, their partners and our seven year old grandson. Pete was a welcoming host and it was apparent that he was very keen that all his guests enjoyed their stay. Despite a family crisis nothing was too much trouble for him. The cottage was spacious and very well equipped and we all enjoyed the facilities on the farm. The pool and the games room were on either side of the cottage, very convenient! The tennis court was well maintained and the children's play area, particularly the trampoline, was very popular with our grandson (and son and partner!). Our grandson enjoyed helping Pete to feed the animals and Pete was very inclusive in the activity, allowing him to pour drinking water into the pigs trough and handle the younger chickens. The shop on the site was well stocked and in addition to locally produced sausages etc there were some delicious speciality local cheeses. We particularly enjoyed having fresh croissants in the morning. The location of the cottages is excellent. Highly recommend nearby Bantham Beach, very large and sandy, and good for body boarding as well as being safe for swimming. The location of the cottages is also convenient for Dartmouth Kingsbridge, Totnes and Salcombe. Had lovely meals at the Fortescue Arms in East Allington and Seven Stars in Dartmouth. The model village at Babbicombe (Torquay) was an excellent day out, as was nearby Woodlands and crab fishing in Dartmouth yielded buckets of crabs! Thanks to Pete for his hospitality - the cream tea and wine were very much appreciated. All in all a lovely holiday in a beautiful location.
