We have just returned from out third relaxing stay in the large, family room at Courtmor Farm in East Devon. It's a B & B and self-catering business in a lovely old farmhouse and is 4 star ETB rated. The farmhouse is located just off the A30 a few minutes car journey north of Honiton, it's very easy to find down a short drive well signposted from the main road. It's not a working farm any longer but there are surrounding fields containing ponies, cattle and sheep. There is also a small coarse fishing lake for use by guests. The farmhouse is just below the brow of the hill the views across the Otter Valley are superb. Seeing the valley below you completely obscured by white, cotton-wool early-morning mist, and then clear within half an hour is quite magical. The family room is en-suite and light and airy as it has windows on three sides. The accommodation is of very high quality, as is the friendly welcome and customer service. For example during our last stay the digital set-top box in our room failed, we mentioned this after breakfast, and a new replacement unit was purchased and installed before we had returned to our room that evening. The breakfast alone is worth going back for and the bacon is superb. We use Courtmoor Farm as a base to explore the old market towns of Honiton & Axminster, Exeter and it's upmarket shopping and beautiful Cathedral, the Jurassic Coast and resorts of Sidmouth, Seaton & Beer. Talking of beer, many pubs in the area serve the locally brewed Otter Bitter, and very tasty it is too. Close at hand over the border into Dorset are Bridport and the picturesque harbour at Lyme Regis, and fossil hunting on the beach at Charmouth. Dorchester and Weymouth are further afield but are very easy to visit via the A35. We are already looking forward to our next visit!
