    • “Lovely holiday, made very welcome by the owners. Great to see the animals every day, 2 calves were born on our first day too! Cosy cottage, with everything you need, washing machine and tumble dryer are shared and donation to be to use them, but no hassle with this. Games room was very spacious and had lots to do if needed.”

    Mr Marsh, Swindon, September 2018

    • “Owners are fantastic and couldn’t be more welcoming or helpful”

    Mrs Jordan, SOUTHAMPTON, August 2018

    • “We booked our Sykes holiday for two weeks, the first week to be spent with our family including two grandchildren, and the second week with old friends. The cottage 'Battens' at Northleigh Farm, Colyton, Devon was very well equipped, we could have had a party for a dozen people or more! Our hosts Sue and Simon Potter could not have been more friendly or helpful. We were blessed with lovely weather and the children enjoyed free range of the garden and loved helping to feed the chickens. The play barn was well used, but would really have come into its own if the weather had been bad. We enjoyed trips to the beach, river boat ride, kite flying, picnics and building happy memories. The second week was more sedate with adult pursuits, A la Ronde, a National Trust property was a delight; encounters with cows in the narrow lanes and meeting a bus coming the other way caused much laughter. We were lucky to be in time for the Honiton Show, and found places to eat, although these had to be researched as nowhere immediately close by. Only thing missing was a pub in the village. We would be happy to recommend this cottage to our friends, and may even return another time.”

    Mrs Darley, WHYTELEAFE, July 2018

    • “This is really a lovely place, a nice spacious cottage with gorgeous views over the pretty countryside. Very helpful owners. I would thoroughly recommend it.”

    Hutchinson, May 2018

    • “Northleigh Farm is a little gem. Battens is a cosy, warm, secluded retreat with a lovely patio view over the fields. Sue and Simon, the owners are delightful and my son loved feeding the animals and collecting the eggs. The games room on site is a real bonus for children and adults alike. A great little base for exploring Devon, good walks, interesting museums and beautiful coastal towns.”

    Mrs Teasdale, SOUTHSEA, April 2018

The Property

4 miles from Colyton, deep in thick, lush hedgerow lanes in the Coly Valley, is the sleepy hamlet of Northleigh, 5 to 7 miles from the lovely coastal villages of Beer, Sidmouth and Branscombe. On the edge of Northleigh, three cottages converted from traditional Devon barns on a small mixed farm raising beef, free range poultry and a few piglets. An acre of lawn (barbecue) for energetic ball games or just sitting under a shading cherry tree and enjoying gorgeous rural views. Shared laundry room (washing machine, tumble drier, freezer) and games barn (table tennis, ¼-sized snooker table, darts, table football) which can be adapted into a big dining room for special occasions, by arrangement. When booked together, the cottages accommodate 14 guests. Ducks on the pond (fenced), cobblestones in the courtyard, a soppy dog and dignified cat make this an utterly charming place to stay, unwind and enjoy a friendly, rural idyll. Battens: door from courtyard to open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with TV/DVD and glazed doors at the back to patio (table/chairs) and the shared lawn. Ground-floor twin bedroom with en suite loo. Stairs (stairgate) up to two more bedrooms - a double, and one with two singles; bathroom (suite, shower over bath).
