I highly recommend Burscombe dairy farm as a delightful escape to Devon. There is a particularly friendly reception for both guests and dogs. The cottage is spotless and well equipped. It is an ideal base for exploring South Devon, but you will need to navigate narrow country lanes, which is part of the magic.

A wonderful place to stay in the heart of rural East Devon, but close enough to Sidmouth etc. to make shopping and day trips easy. Lovely hosts and a great garden that the children loved. One of our nicest holidays!

Idyllic location in the Devon countryside, peace and quiet in a lovely cottage, warm welcome from the owners on a working dairy farm. My son loved helping in the milking parlour and cuddling the young calves, watching the tractors working and walking around the fields. Perfect location to explore the local area and the local Waitrose handy to stockRead more up from for supplies. We enjoyed our stay so much we didn't want to leave but have already booked up again for next year. Hide

This cottage is not recommended for people with disabilities as stairs are very steep also indoor steps require some negotiation.

A really idyllic location and the cottage is surprisingly spacious. Not ideal for those that are 6 foot and over but only a few doorways to navigate and this all added to the charm. Well worth noting that the location is great in terms of ease of access from South East as its not too far into Devon and also easy to get to the coastline which is maxRead more 10 mins drive vs other cottages we have stayed at that were 30 / 40 mins + Hide

A lovely cottage on a dairy farm. The owners were great and showed us round the farm and our youngest saw first hand where our milk comes from. An idyllic setting with great walks all around. In easy driving distance of Sidmouth, Seaton and Exeter. Our dog Billy loved it!

Very quiet location only the farmyard animals to list to. Track to the farm a bit daunting but taken slowly is ok, as we have been to this property before we were aware. Host very friendly and will assist where possible. Ideal for Sidmouth, sidbury and Seaton, Children would love it.

Fantastic farm cottage. The owner provided a warm welcome and we felt at home straight away. Beautiful setting and ideally located to explore the South Devon Jurassic coast. The cottage has everything you need and is spacious yet cosy. Although we ate out most nights at good quality local pubs, the kitchen facilities are more than adequate for cookRead moreing. The cottage was clean, quiet and warm. There a plenty of local walks with great scenary. The local amenities are good too. Hide
