    • “This is a lovely place. Simple and unfussy but perfect for up-to 4 people who would like to be somewhere in the South West that has great access to main roads but is also be quiet and properly rural. A quiet country lane and yet a large Tescos not 1 mile away - very convenient. All facilities were present and well kept - the kitchen was well equipped, we enjoyed some of the DVDs, the bathroom was smart and clean and the pool warmed and cared for. Farmer Hill is a friendly farmer (as is Mrs. Hill), which isn't always a farmer attribute. Visitors should be aware this is an operating farm, with sheep and sheep emissions - but it really wasn't that intrusive. The main room is pet-friendly so if you're not a fan of other peoples dog's smell on chairs perhaps pack your Febreeze. There's no bed like your own bed, but it wasn't so bad really. Thank you Mrs. & Farmer Hill. Enjoy your time in Devon!”

    Mr Hallahan, Thatcham, July 2018

    • “We love this place, it has everything we need, the people are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. We have stayed here before so it met expectations but if it was the first time it would’ve exceeded expectations!”

    Mrs Jordan, Leicester, July 2018

    • “This cottage is great for those looking for a rural retreat but with good access to amenities (Tesco circa 10 minute drive) and beaches (Westwood Ho! circa 15 mins drive). The farm is a working farm with sheep (and lambs when we visited), ducks and chickens, which adds to the appeal. The cottage is simply laid out but well equipped and the enclosed garden a real bonus for the dog (or small children). You're free to roam the farm fields which made for some lovely evening walks with great views across the valley. Richard and his wife are on site should you need any help - they're super friendly and welcoming, but also give you space to enjoy your break. We didn't use the pool but I could imagine this being fab fun in the summer. Overall this cottage ticked all our boxes and we would definitely return.”

    Mr Bremner, Nottingham, June 2018

    • “The Cart Linhay is very comfortable and well equipped. The Hill family are very friendly and Richard too time on our arrival to show us the accommodation and how everything worked. The photos on the web site are accurate. We were very lucky with the weather, had it been wet I would worry about the beige carpet. We had a lovely time.”

    Mr Wallen, Towcester, May 2018

    • “Richard was warm and welcoming and showed us around the property on arrival, explaining everything that we needed to know, before leaving us to it. The cottage was lovely and clean and we were welcomed with delicious homemade cupcakes. The garden was perfect for our small children and dog, as there was enough room for them to run around but it was secure so that none could escape! The owners have stocked the cottage really well so that there was never a time that we needed anything that wasn't available. Beds were all super comfy and we all slept very well. The cottage is close to local amenities and a short distance from loads of great days out and attractions. A super little place that we hope to return to in the future.”

    Miss Mcfarlane, Yeovil, March 2018
