Foales Leigh Farmhouse
Reviewed 6 November 2011

We were involved in a local sports event and needed late accomodation local to Totnes. We had difficulty finding availablity in Totnes town due to a local conference and found Foales Leigh on the internet.
There was only one problem during our stay and that was finding the venue!! We reached Totnes after a long journey and spent an extra 45 minutes finding the farmhouse ( this was partially down to our poor map reading, but worth being aware of ..)On arrival our frustration was quickly resolved with the wonderful accomodation and hearty welcome.
It is not walking distance from Totnes, however our hosts arranged a local cab driver who gave us a personal VIP service to and from the town at all hours of the day and night at minimal expense.
The rooms were immaculate, clean and along with the decor of the Farmhouse itself provides a 'wow' factor on arrival. The guest lounge was perfect for post-event debrief and the breakfast provided was the best I have recieved at any other B&B.
The hosts are a friendly couple with a very young family and they made us very welcome. Our visit was for a sports event, however would have no hesitation recommending this establishment for a short break or holiday it is in the perfect place to get away from it all and relax and at a good price as well

Room Tip: Bring a map!

We found Foales Leigh in a farmstay book given to us by another farmstay further down the coast. We travelled from Austraila and toured the UK (starting in scotland and working down and across country) Foales Leigh was (and still is) the highlight of our trip. The room was exquisite, everything clean and fresh. The food was wonderful and Catherine an understanding cook who catered to my very limited diet. Never before have we felt so at home, so welcomed and so happy to stay somewhere away from home. The surroundings are breathtaking. We met some of the locals who were also so friendly it was hard to leave, we wish we had more time to stay and had we known about Foales Leigh before, we would have passed through other areas quicker to stay here longer. Thank you to Martyn and Catherine for your wonderful welcome, for sharing your home and your time and your family with us. You are No.1 on our list for next time around!

well the cats out of the bag now, so I suppose a review for Foales Leigh is overdue.
I can agree with "Spidercast" 100% this is a perfect place, situated off the beaten track
but within easy reach of anywhere in the South Hams. We have been returning here for a
few years now, this place cannot be beaten and you could not find a nicer couple than
Catherine & Martyn.
Foales Leigh is a wonderful building rescued from dereliction by Martyns parents some years ago. It has been tastefully restored and furnished to a high quality.
Breakfast is traditoinal healthily Aga cooked, locally sourced or other choices are available if so wished. Book early this place is popular with a lot of repeat customers, once visited you just have to go back.!

We have just returned home from a three-night bed and breakfast stay at the 5 Star Gold award-winning Foales Leigh Farm, Harberton, near Totnes, South Devon. It is a working Farm set in 300 acres – in a truly peaceful location, yet only about a ten minute drive to the Historic town of Totnes. Our Hosts, Catherine and Martyn, made us feel so welcome in their beautiful home.

Our very comfortable ensuite room, decorated in warm neutral tones (plus exposed wood ceiling beams) was spotlessly clean. We were provided with a Tea Tray (tea, coffee and biscuits) plus fresh milk (kept in the fridge on the landing) so we were able to make our own drinks. We also had use of the huge Guest’s Lounge on the ground floor - with stunning views across ‘patchwork’ fields and rolling hills. There are folders with information about what to do in the area during the stay, and suggestions of places to eat.

Breakfasts (with choices) made from local produce were superb and served in the dining area where we could meet the other guests.

For those who wish to do self-catering, there is Jack’s Cottage; a lovely barn-conversion into a two-bedroom cottage that is located close to the Farm.

Why not take a look at the website for more details: http://www.foalesleigh.co.uk

It’s the perfect place to do as much or as little as you want!

Room Tip: Book early - it's popular!
