A great place to stay.
We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Hornshayne Farm and have had a wonderful time. Our family of 3 sons, 3 daughters in laws and three grandchildren spent the weekend together in this lovely old farmhouse. When we walked in we found it very warm as there is an Aga in the kitchen and heating all through the house. There was a nice welcome of 2 bottles of wine and some lovely eggs fresh from the farm plus milk in the fridge. Andrew and Sally, the owners, were very welcoming and we were able to go around the farm whenever we liked. We watched the cows being milked, saw the calves being fed and enjoyed watching the sheep with lambs in the field by the house and playing with the dogs. Unfortunately, 2 sons and partners had to leave by the Monday but our remaining son, wife and child enjoyed the rest of the week with us and one of the highlights was seeing two calves born, Andrew having rung to say they were on their way if we wanted to see the births. We had some lovely walks from the property and the whole holiday was very relaxing. There was a lovely games room (which we didn?t really get to use as the weather was so good) with football, snooker etc and lots of toys and books for the children. The property is surrounded by fields and is at the end of a long road and you get no traffic noise at all - apart from the odd tractor!

Perfect child and dog friendly Devon farm holiday
Our second visit to Hornshayne Farm and it won't be our last. A beautiful, clean and well equipped farmhouse in idyllic countryside setting with wonderful views, walks and river fun. Ideal for large multi generation family groups and dog friendly. Run by very welcoming family and lots to be involved with on the working farm. Lots of family friendly things to see and do within 30 minute drive including beaches and the nearby town of Honiton is ideal for supermarket supplies and anything else you may need.

An oasis of calm and tranquility at the end of the M5 for the family
This delightful farmhouse offers an excellent holiday for an extended family group or groups of families. The outdoor space, with its wooden fort and slides and sandpit are ideal for children up to age 10. There is table tennis and a pool table for older children. The first day we just stayed on the property and enjoyed the outdoor space. Then you can go and look at the calves and chickens and have a conducted tour by the Hurford family.

Fantastic farm experience
We had a fantastic holiday in the beautiful setting of this Devon farm. The owners were very hospitable. The children really enjoyed being involved with farm life including giving milk to the cows and even seeing a calf being born. The facilities are great and full of character. A lovely week away.

Fabulous well equipped property
We loved staying at Hornshayne farmhouse for the week. It was immaculate and clean and very well equipped for children. The owners were lovely showed around the maternity pen and the baby calves which went down well with the children. Would love to visit again, we are missing Maud already!
