Guestbook comments from the owner
My wife and I booked this as a holiday over Xmas for us and her sister in law, her brother, her three neices and their dog. Booking the cottage was very easy, although we used a website for cottages in Devon, this property can be booked directly with Woodhayes farm.
Upon arrival the cottage was very clean and the owners left us a surprise xmas cake to have. The barn is converted into 3 floors; the ground being a kitchen / dining room with a 14" TV & wood burner. The second floor being x3 bedrooms and the upper floor in the attic with x2 sofa beds and a large TV.
We were greeted by Fiona's mother-in-law who stated a walk into Honiton was approximately 15 minutes, this was down counrty lanes and I would not reccomend walking on a dark night (as we did) unless you have torches.
