Heaven in Devon!
This is an amazing property to rent. It is a stunning cottage, very well equipped and tastefully decorated throughout. It has fabulous views and is in a great location to travel around South Devon, within easy reach of gorgeous beaches (particularly in South Hams) and lovely Devonshire villages. The A38 Express also gives easy access to many stores and shopping outlets. The cottage is situated on a farm adjacent to the lovely owners Becky, Chris & their lovely children Amelia & Joshua. They are so friendly & helpful and are really chilled. Chris is a retired successful NH Jockey and on the farm they breed and break in race horses. The new stable built this year is absolutely stunning. The horses were an added wonderful experience to our holiday. They are magnificent and I fell totally in love with all of them. It has been so interesting listening to Chris and learning about the racing industry and although we have had a great time visiting the various beaches and places during the day I have to admit that I couldn't wait to come back later in the day to have a 'horse hug' with Rex, Boo & Charlie! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beautiful holiday let. It is a totally unique experience and so dog friendly which is the main reason we booked it. We will definitely return and wish Chris & Becky all the success with their business - they certainly deserve it!

What a find
Delightful, cozy cottage. Olde Worldw but with logburner and all mod cons. Beautifully furnished and decorated. Friendly owners. Peaceful setting, beautiful countryside. Would definitely recommend

The Farm is a lovely setting with fantastic views. The property is very clean and the owners make you very welcome.
Mr Christie

A cosy comfy cottage with excellent views, and in easy reach of Dartmoor and beaches.
Ms Harvey

We had a really lovely stay at Higher Whiddon Farm! The house was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, and from the garden and kitchen you have a lovely view over the fields with horses. In the house there is also a lot of information available about the area. We certainly recommend this place to anybody who wants to explore Dartmoor National Park!
