About Sophia and Roy May

Roy and Sophia May live on the farm at Wansley Barton with their 2 children, family pets and flock of organic sheep. We like to share our home with visitors and invite you to come and sample our beautiful Devon countryside and fantastic beaches.

Sophia and Roy May purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Sophia and Roy May chose South Hams

The farm is in a peaceful location in lovely Devon countryside but near to everything that you could want. North Devon is one of the few unspoilt areas of England, where people are friendly, the air is clean and you can still see every star at night. Our house and cottages are very old and the site dates back to the Doomsday Book. We just love it here and we hope that you will too!

What makes this cottage unique

the best thing about living here is there is no passing traffic, just peace and quiet. It is a place where you can do what you like, with no neighbours, no street lights, no pollution, just nature at its best.

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt one of the best family holidays we have had.

Truly 5 star boasting a heated indoor swimming pool that actually is heated to a comfortable degree and only 4 ft deep accommodates all the family.

The cottage has been expertly converted and no expense spared on the fixtures & fittings, it has everything you need (a home from home) .Like the pool the heating in the cottage is amazing, nice to have hot baths, proper showers and heated towel radiators.

To top it all I caught a cracking common carp in the lake

Thanks Sophia you made us very welcome.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and your kind comments. I am glad that you had a good holiday. You caught the biggest carp to date! We would welcome you back to see if you can catch an even bigger one.

Bramble cottage

  • 5 of 5

As a party of 14 we rented the meadow cottage and bramble cottage. Bramble cottage is a very homely and comfortable 2 bedroom the views from the master bedroom and garden are outstanding.The hospitality from the owners Roy and Sofia are excellent providing milk wine and cake on arrival. The cottage is sufficiently equipped and very spacious the extra bonus is the indoor swimming pool which the children enjoyed along with the hours of fishing at the Lake behind. It's so relaxing and a great way to recharge batteries whilst having quality family time away The walks are fabulous in all directions from Wansley Barton and the local pub the New Inn in Roborough is so welcoming too with delicious food. We will certainly be visiting again
