We managed to book the small double at Shaftsboro Farm for two nights after our original plans fell through only two days before. From the minute we arrived everyone was incredibly welcoming and nothing was ever too much trouble. After going out for a walk on the first day, we arrived back a few hours later soaked to the bone after getting caught in a storm. Margaret kindly tumble-dried the dogs towels and hung our coats over the ager overnight so they were ready for us to wear again the next morning.
Our room was clean and tidy and although a little on the small side (which we were warned about when we booked), it had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The bathroom was spotless.
Breakfast was amazing and set us up for the rest of the day. Delicious home-grown produce cooked to order as well as a choice of cereals and yogurts.
The location is very tranquil and relaxing and is great for exploring Woolacombe, Mortehoe, Ifracombe and of course the South West coastal path. Broadoar Bay, which is great for rock-pooling, is only 20mins walk away through the woods.
We can't thank you enough for making our weekend so lovely. We will definitely be back again!
