the lambing shed at Gosford park was great

The accommodation was perfect for our needs (family of 4) with beautiful views of the countryside. The owners were very friendly and helpful, taking time to show our children the sheep and answer their many questions regarding the chickens. There were plenty of places of interest to visit nearby. I hope to come back to stay here again.

Comfortable, cosy, great views from the veranda, excellent location for touring the area and the sausages in the owner's farm shop are tasty too! Everything you would expect for a great holiday in the Devon countryside.

Comfortable two bedroom (just) ground floor barn conversion. Second bedroom is rather small with two single beds and chest of drawers taking up most of the room. Would be very cramped for two teenagers. Plenty of pots and pans but no dishwasher. Showers effective but no bath. Outlook is very pleasant across fields with chickens , sheep and cows, alRead morethough, bizarrely for a farm location, you get traffic noise! Fields close-by can have tents and caravans present. Narrow lane entrance. Hide

What a lovely cottage on a beautiful working farm. The cottage had everything a family with young children needed. The hosts gave us lots of space, yet were on hand for any requests we had. They even let our children help out on the farm. It is minutes away from the A30, and a great location to explore the County. Would highly recommend.
