Lovely place to stay with loads to do with small children only short drives away. The facilities for the children and having animals to admire on site made it the perfect spot for us. Equipment and bed comfort all great. Would happily book again.

Had such an enjoyable stay at Cider Steps. Surrounding countryside was beautiful and the proximity of the accommodation to the farmhouse added a reassuring and authentic rural feel to the holiday. Welcome scones and milk was much appreciated and added an extra dimension to the 'package'. Would definitely book with Kenniford Farm again!

Location very easy to find, on arrival we found 4 scones, jam and cream (a lovely touch). Lots of good space in kitchen and living room. Very clean and comfortable, bedding clean and fresh. Only downside shower is a bit low and cramped, not suitable for tall people. As a cottage you can expect squeaky floor boards. Ideal location to travel from as Read morea base to explore parts of Devon. A bonus, a superb farmers shop only 5 minutes away Definitely use this accommodation again. Hide

Peaceful property (other the gentle quacking from the wandering ducks). Comfort living spaces and bedrooms. Location close to some main roads so easy to access other parts of the county.

Cottage was great to stay in. Great place to base ourselves in devon to explore. Double bed mattress was quite soft and could feel some of the springs but we slept well. Very clean. Very relaxing. Very well equipped. Fun and interesting being on a working farm.

Great little cottage, brilliant for a young family like us as our little girl (nearly 4) could run around on the grass just outside, see ducks, chickens, ponies and of course pigs, and play on the little swings and amazing ride on tractors and other vehicles. We even got a tour of the pig farm and saw big and baby pigs up close and learned a littleRead more bit about pig breeding!!! Close to Exeter, beaches and other family friendly activities too. Hide

A lovely cottage. Very clean and comfortable. But note that the stairs are very steep and the bathroom and toilet have restricted head height. The shower is challenging for tall people!

A wonderful stay at Cider Steps. The cottage offered everything we could have needed. The location was perfect as all our day trips were within 15 to 30 minutes. Our eldest daughter who is 3 years old loved the farm, animals and climbing frame. A perfect holiday. Thank you so much.

Lovely, clean a comfortable cottage. Children loved staying on a farm and seeing all the animals, the horses were a firm favourite. The play area was excellent and little extras like the go carts were really enjoyed.
