We thoroughly enjoyed our stay a Windover Cottage which olde worlde but with a modern, well equipped kitchen. The living room features a log burning fire which really adds to the atmosphere in the evenings. All outlooks are onto farmland and the back of the cottage overlooks a spacious garden very suitable for children. And right in the middle of it is your own chicken hutch with three chickens that you can, if you wish, feed, let out and and generally look after in return for some delicious eggs. There are also some pigs close by that you can feed your scraps to. If you like bird watching you will be amazed at the variety of exotic types that visit the bird table. On your arrival you will be greeted by the sight of some delicious food supplied by Sarah who lives next door. You can also have a delivery of food from your favourite supermarket if you wish. There are plenty of walks from right outside the cottage and it is only a short drive to the nearest village. From reading the visitors book you will see that most comments are from return visitors like us which says it all about a satisfying holiday experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Windover cottage. The cottage is very comfortable, with a very well resourced kitchen and a wonderful supply of equipment and toys for children. The owners are really hospitable, welcoming us warmly and even unpacking a Tesco order for us before we arrived. The garden is beautiful and our children loved caring for the chickens on the lawn. We highly recommend Windover cottage!
My wife, 3 yr old daughter and 6 month old son stayed at Windover Farm Cottage for a week in July 2017. The cottage was lovely, really clean and well presented. We didn't want for anything during our stay, Sarah (owner) was really nice and we had a great week.
The rooms in the cottage are all a good size and the atmosphere is of a well loved family home.
Our daughter loved feeding the hens and found several eggs, which she was extremely excited about! We also wandered over to feed the pigs nearby, which she also really enjoyed.
The location is fantastic as well - a wonderful spot in a beautiful valley. I highly recommend the cottage and have no hesitation in rating it 5 out of 5.
The property is in a lovely location and the views are stunning whatever the weather.
The cottage is particularly well appointed with everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay.
The owners, Sarah and Seamus, could not be more welcoming and helpful - the "goodies" on arrival were special indeed!
All in all we had a wonderful time, it really is the total antidote to any stress!
We will definitely be booking again and will highly recommend it to one and all!
We've visited for the past two years with our young family (eldest 4, youngest 2) and had a brilliant time both weeks. The cottage is beautiful, well-equipped and incredibly child friendly. Wonderful garden (with chickens to feed!) with views out over the hills. Perfect location for days out - Honiton is a lovely town (especially on market days), and slightly further afield there are beautiful beaches, National Trust gardens and lots of scope for walks. For the occasional rainy day, there are cupboards of toys which our kids loved, as well as plenty of DVDs (and a TV / DVD player). And - it's always wonderful to arrive after a long drive to a home-baked victoria sponge and a selection of local breakfast goodies. Can't speak highly enough of it!
We stayed here for two weeks and could have stayed longer. The cottage itself is very comfortable and well equipped with friendly and helpful hosts on hand next door. We went with two teens of 11 and 13 and they loved the outdoor space with the added bonus of chickens and pigs to feed when they wanted to. Highly recommend a stay here. The countryside is beautiful and there's plenty to do in the area and further afield. Wouldn't hesitate to return.
