Colyton, Devon, England
On the edge of Woodbridge hamlet, ¾ mile from Farway, is Hornshayne Farmhouse, a large, beautiful and imposing thatched farmhouse adjoining the owners’ cottage in the midst of this busy, working, 335 acre dairy/arable farm (you're welcome to help feed calves). There’s been a house here since Saxon times; ‘gentrified’ in the 1700s, this farmhouse retains many original and fascinating features (still a salting cupboard and ceiling chamber in the kitchen). Outside, plenty of open space (river for children's fun and tiddler fishing, ponds, walks over miles of unspoiled countryside with outstanding views, quiet roads to run) surrounding the pretty garden (picnic table, gas barbecue, giant draughts, unfenced shallow stream; great play castle, Wendy house and sandpit, shared with owners) and games barn (quarter-sized billiard table, tabl...

The first day we just stayed on the property and enjoyed the outdoor space....

We had a fantastic holiday in the beautiful setting of this Devon farm. The owners were very hospitable. The children really enjoyed being involved with farm life including giving milk to the cows and even seeing a calf being born. The facilities are great and full of character. A lovely week away.

We loved staying at Hornshayne farmhouse for the week. It was immaculate and clean and very well equipped for children. The owners were lovely showed around the maternity pen and the baby calves which went down well with the children. Would love to visit again, we are missing Maud already!
