Christmas in perfect Devon
A lovely warm friendly house owned and cared for by lovely warm friendly people. The location is idyllic, and the walks across the farm fields glorious, even in the rain. The only place we have visited where the sheep approach you rather than running away......because Jeremy feeds them treats. He is proud of "Angry Boy", probably the most docile animal you'll ever meet. Jeremy, Barbara and Taryn are a delight.
All absolutely charming. We hope to return.
Lovely location and warm and friendly
Would recommend to anybody
Beautiful scenic location
We stayed here as a group of 10 and loved the house.
It is a beautiful period house, in a simply stunning location. It is very well equipped for a holiday home, and had everything we needed.
Thoroughly enjoyed our time here!
Only minor points was insufficient hot water for showers/ baths for 10 of us, and no curtains in the downstairs bedroom.
Would definitely recommend and come back again.
So pleased to hear you all enjoyed your stay and our beautiful countryside location, and thank you for your feedback! We will check out the hot water situation as we wouldn't want this to happen again. Hope to see you again soon.
Our hosts were great, even taking in our shopping delivery when we were unexpectedly delayed by heavy traffic and awful weather on our way there. Not only did they take it in, but also put all the frozen and chilled food in the fridge/freezer! Taryn was very helpful with anything we needed. The farmhouse was everything I'd hoped it would be! The beds and sofas were very comfortable, the kitchen was perfect for our large family too. None of us wanted to leave, including our 3 and 6 year old girls, which shows what a lovely time we all had. We would love to go back and explore more of the Devon countryside. I can highly recommend it!
Thank you for your glowing review Liz we are so pleased you all enjoyed your time in the farmhouse in Longdown. Hope to see you again.
Very comfortable with stunning views.
The Farmhouse was a little out of the way but quite easy to find. The views were fabulous and the owners were friendly. We had access to a field to walk the dog which was perfect.
There were a few things in the house that needed attention for example door handles and it would be a good idea to have locks on the bathroom doors. A visitors book would be a good idea.
Overall though we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the weather was kind to us.
Thanks for your suggestions Linda we are so glad to hear you enjoyed our fabulous views from the farm. We have taken on board your suggestions and have made up some privacy signs for the bathroom doors! Hope to see you again soon.
We had a wonderful stay at Longdown House! We were blown away by both house and setting!!
Thanks very much Taryn and Barbara for making our stay in Devon's beautiful countryside so special. Our friend who is due to get married had a fantastic hen do, owed to the charming nature of the house and its idyllic farm setting, complete with new born lambs we got to meet!
The location was perfect, 30 minutes from Exeter with its friendly nightime vibe and the same to the river Dart where we were able to spend the day canoeing!
Everything in the house was of a high standard and we really didn't have any complaints. Our only query was on how to best work the oven but I'm sure that would have been easy enough to figure out if we had got around to asking!
We are all hoping to make a trip back at some point to and explore more of the countryside and local sights on offer.
Thanks a million again,
Holly (on behalf of all the hens!!)
