Part dream, part working farm

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful old farm, beautiful rural surroundings, everyone in the group loved it for their own reasons - lambs and sheep, wonderful walks and working with the wood. And a cosy well equipped cottage with everything you could imagine to require in it. And the decoration is just beautiful, no sweetish stuff but really good style everywhere. Loved it from a to z !

A perfect setting for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We cannot speak highly enough of this charming and idyllic little cottage, set in truly beautiful countryside. Everything about Pond cottage is perfect. Renate and John are so friendly and were only to happy to share their beautiful farm and well cared for animals with us .The ducks, geese and lambs are delightful and really kept us amused with their antics ! The cottage and garden are pristine and have everything that you could wish for, and the added personal touch of fresh flowers, eggs and homemade jam really were the icing on the cake! Thank you Renate and John for a lovely relaxing break, we hope to be back very soon

Wonderful break

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with daughters ages 14 and 11. We stayed at Pond cottage for 3 nights at the end of May 2018. On arrival we were warmly greeted by John and shown around the property and farm. This is a beautiful part of the world and the farm and cottage are as picturesque as you could imagine. The ducks, chickens and lambs were a highlight for the girls and we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The cottage has everything you need to self cater and there are some lovely pubs nearby. Renate was very kind and provided some fresh eggs and homemade jam on arrival! a lovely treat x

We still managed to sight see during our stay and travelled to both Sidmouth and Hartland which we did with ease.

Pond cottage is a central base in the heart of Devon - perfect for a break for anyone !

Wonderful well equipped cottage in a charming rural location.

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy a rural farm location put this property on your list. Very well equipped cottage with walks both on the property and many villages plus the Exmoor Forest a short distance away. It was a little early in the season to use the pool but it would be an asset in the warm summer months. Highly recommended cottage, location and hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This was the the most idyllic cottage for our little holiday, the location & setting were superb,the cottage was first class..along with the owners Renate & John, who gave us the most warm welcome & made us feel at home,

We will definitely be returning..this place can not be faulted!

P.s the little bowl you found on top of your television is for the cottage, as a little thank you from John, he wanted to leave his mark on the place for when we return :)

See you next year Margaret & John...

Tiverton is a historic market town occupied by the Romans who used it as a base for their activities in the West country.

The local museum provides an interesting insight into this aspect of the town's history. Visit the castle with its famous tapestry hangings and the pannier market held Fridays and Saturdays. There is a newly built leisure centre and a cinema.

The river Exe passes through the town as does the Grand Western canal and horse drawn barge trips take you through the most picturesque countryside. Knightshayes and Killerton House, two National Trust houses with beautiful garden are close by and well worth a visit.

Pond Cottage lies halfway between the villages of Rackenford and Witheridge.
