About the Owner

My name is Jo and my parents have lived in this area for over 40 years, first farming and making cheese then in 1990 converting what used to be their milking parlour for their herd of beautiful Jersey cows, into this fabulous 10 bedroom house which has been popular with guests ever since. I now endeavour to create a happy, easy-going atmosphere and try to make your holiday special.

Location

From the Owner

This property is always clean with lots of space for a big group to either be together or retreat into their own space (with all bedrooms having their own bathrooms). The wow factor is simple; when you drive down the drive the valley opens up into some of the loveliest views Devon has to offer. This is a very peaceful spot, there is no traffic noise, no pylons and just the sounds of the countryside that welcome you when you arrive and for your stay. A great, affordable place to get away from it all. The bedrooms are bright and comfortable and all bathrooms are simple and clean.
