“Peaceful location to explore North Devon”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

lovely coach house in peaceful surroundings. Stayed for 4 days and made use of the bikes cycling into Bideford to work off the Devon cream tea. The Coach house is a warm and comfortable retreat but easily accessible to restaurants and pubs without the noise of their patrons rolling out noisily late at night, around you, would definately recommend this to friends, and have already done so. Ruth and Alistair are helpful without being intrusive. Perfect.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a lovely week here, highly recommended. I can only echo the other reviews, lovely property, so clean and homely. Lovely location, very peaceful but central for driving off elsewhere. Perfect hosts, completely attentive but not intrusive at all. We would definitely recommend this as a base for a holiday in North Devon and hopefully will be back again ourselves! Thank you Ruth and Ali!

“Lovely, welcoming people and property :)”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We loved the Coach house, it was a perfect base from which to explore North Devon. When we arrived the coach house was comfortable and welcoming with attention to detail which was much appreciated after a long stressful journey down the M5! The Trout farm is an amazing, relaxing setting we enjoyed the bikes, the boat and feeding the pigs. We hope to visit again soon!

“Lovely accomodation, beautiful surrounds but still near to lots of attractions/towns”
Reviewed 30 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We were attracted to this accommodation as it was in a good location and it is all on one level but the clincher was being able to hand feed and even oil their Kune Kune pigs!! Please be warned, when you come, be armed with carrots or bananas or risk a very disgruntled Sammy the pig :) Part of our daily routine was to feed her a treat before setting off for the day.
Ruth and Ali were very welcoming, kind and very knowledgeable of the area, recommending local restaurants etc.
They were always available should we need them and were the perfect hosts.
Accomodation was lovely and very clean/spacious one of the best we have stayed in.
All in all we had a wonderful week on holiday and would definitely consider returning.

“Comfortable, peaceful and well-equipped”
Reviewed 16 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This bright, clean and spacious apartment provided a comfortable base from which to explore North Devon. There was ample space for our family of 5 and the unit was well equipped with kitchen and bathroom supplies and bed linen. We were fortunate with the weather in our stay and took full advantage of the rowboat on the lake, the bikes for the Tarka Trail (an easy cycle ride away) and the opportunity to meet the pigs and chickens! There was also a good selection of games, books and DVDs provided. Altogether a tranquil and well-supplied escape. Owners Ruth and Ali made us very welcome. Highly recommended.
