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.

Superb 5 STAR+ Family Accomodation

  • 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, and the weather for October was brilliant.

Sophia was very welcoming and on hand if needed.

Happy Days - Ken H

Lovely property - peaceful rural location.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a family weekend away with our 2 sons and their families (grandchildren aged 4 months 3 & 5) Meadow Cottage was perfect - great to have the heated swimming pool - we all enjoyed morning swims. The wooded walk and lake were super too. Sophia was very welcoming and available if required but not intrusive. The local pub at Roborough is a must - very friendly and the food is delicious. Seaside resorts for days out fairly accessible too. Thoroughly recommend this property for a relaxing UK break.

A great holiday

  • 4 of 5

Five of us had a great week in Meadow cottage. The facilities are lovely and the owners very friendly. Plenty to see and do in the area. The pool was great.

Our weather was good so cannot comment on heating but everything else was just fine. The fishing was good and you really had to think about how to catch them. We had plenty out with tench (3lb), perch (2lb), and carp (14lb). Would recommend this stay. Roger S

Perfect Country Break

  • 5 of 5

Can't speak highly enough about this wonderful let, we received a very warm welcome from Roy and Sophia, the location was very rural and felt very safe for the children (all aged 3) it was lovely to wake up to rolling fields filled with sheep.

The Cottage was very clean and well maintained (we all loved the underfloor heating especially) and the swimming pool was a lovely treat for the kids, it was always pleasantly warm and also very clean.

Loads in the local area for the kiddies to do, and a lovely local pub for the grown ups.

We will be back!
