About the property


Redyeates Farm is the perfect place for family holidays or couples that want to get away from it all in a luxurious, peaceful setting with a great variety of things to do either at the farm or on days out. Previously the Devon Wine School, Redyeates Farm has total peace and quiet based around a 17th century farmhouse with no near neighbours and lots of rolling Devon country-side. If you like the sound of nothing (or maybe a woodpecker or two!) and the sight of circling buzzards, with real dark skies at night to properly see the stars, then you cant go far wrong here. We have superb 5 star accommodation with something for everyone and fine countryside views on your doorstep. If you want to play tennis on our all-weather court, play football with the kids or read the papers while the children roam the 3 acres of gardens, playing on the climbing frame and swings, jumping on our spring free trampoline, playing basketball or simply playing table tennis, we have a lot to do for all.

About Redyeates Farm and Country Cottages

Having spent a lot of time working in corporate life we decided that having had so many fantastic holidays in Devon, it was time to 'live the dream' and stop talking about it. So that's basically it in a nutshell. Having opened Redyeates Farm as luxury holiday cottages (it used to be the Devon Wine School) we are now completely focused on ensuring that all of our customers and their children have a great time here.

During school holiday times we focus on family holidays and outside of these times we focus a little more on adult getaways and romantic weekends.

If you want to know anything more about our holiday cottages, our facilities or the local area, please do not hesitate to call me and discuss your requirements. Best Regards, Gary

Why Redyeates Farm and Country Cottages chose Exeter

When we first saw Redyeates Farm we immediately fell in love with it. It is so peaceful here that we often joke with the children .... "listen to that!" They always say they cant hear anything at all - and that's exactly the point.

With the beautiful views of the rolling Devon countryside and the total peace and quiet you can also be in the cathedral city of Exeter in 25 minutes or at other local pubs and restaurants within 10 minutes or so. The nearest pub with excellent food is just down the road, minutes from us. We are surrounded by all the tourist attractions people would want and the M5 motorway is about 15 minutes away at Tiverton so along with the countryside feel, we really aren't very far from all of the shops, restaurants and attractions you could possibly want.

What makes this cottage unique

The large oak dining table, that seats up to 16 people, can be converted to a pool/snooker table. There is a dining table in the kitchen that seats up to 10 people, should you decide to take this option. Please note there is a £45 charge to convert the pool/snooker table which you need confirm when booking.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Not long been back from this place and want to go back already. Had a wonderful time with the family. Loads to do in the house. Great games, books and dvd's supplied. The best bit for the guys in the group was the pool table inside the property. It was even big enough for snooker. If only I was the winner every time! My wife said that cooking was made easy as they have everything there you need, even if you want to do a fancy dinner. The pub down the road was also brilliant. A great meal had by all. Looking forward to coming again soon. Next time with our extended family as well. Thank you both for being so welcoming.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We're so glad you enjoyed it here and look forward to seeing you again soon. So glad the men enjoyed the pool table in the cottage - it always seems to be a big hit with everyone! Our son also enjoyed playing with your children - especially on the trampoline - I thought he was going to bounce in his sleep they were on it so much! Best regards from us all

Fantastic Break

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at The Barn! Superb accommodation, clean, spacious and catered for all our needs. Took my parents with me they thoroughly enjoyed the views. The children wanted to stay at The Barn during the day rather than venturing out. They enjoyed the trampoline, tennis courts and other outdoor activities. Gary, Louise and their son Luke (owners) were most welcoming hosts and one of the nicest families we have ever met. We will most definitely revisit The Barn, it ticked all the boxes and would strongly recommend staying here to anyone thinking of booking this accommodation.

Beautiful cottage in serene surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The Barn is not really a cottage. It is a luxury house with ample accommodation and every facility situated in the middle of beautiful countryside. Up there with the best. We had a great time.

Car: recommended


20 minutes from the M5 at Tiverton.

20 minutes from the beautiful Roman city of Exeter

17 miles from Exeter International Airport


Just under a mile to the village & local pubs. Also an excellent farm shop nearby. Within 10 - 15 mins there is also a wider selection of local pubs with good food including the bistro bar and restaurant at Bickleigh Mill. Also nearby is the Fishermans Cot overlooking the bridge that was apparently the inspiration for Simon & Garfunkles 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'. There is a superb view of the river from the pub / restaurant. Its 12 miles to either national park and 45 mins to either coast.

Further Details:

Redyeates Farm is surrounded by a huge variety of attractions and depending on what you like, there is something for everyone within a short distance. Close by, there are pubs with good food, a fantastic farm shop for local produce as well as places to walk, cycle or horse ride.

In Bickleigh (10 minutes), is a beautiful Devon village with many thatched cottages, a 400 year old pub, the Devon Railway centre and ‘The Fisherman’s Cot’, a great pub to sit outside immediately next to the river. Bickleigh Mill has an 18th century water wheel, a woodland, waterside walks and a maze. The Mill also has a large shop with gifts, clothing, pottery and crafts and there is an excellent Bistro restaurant and bar open during the day and serving evening meals on certain nights.

We are also situated between the National Parks of Exmoor and Dartmoor either of which is just 12 miles away.

Being strategically placed, from our cottages you can really experience all of the variety Devon has to offer families, young and old. In each of our cottages we have an information pack full of ideas for great days out and some examples in the surrounding areas.

And if you fancy the seaside for the day, you really are well placed to take your pick of many of the coastal resorts (north and south) with their beaches, pretty fishing villages and smugglers coves - either coast being less than an hour away.

If you want a night out to somewhere specific on your own, taxi’s and babysitters can also be arranged (subject to availability). The lovely City of Exeter is just 20 minutes away and has a wealth of bars, family friendly restaurants and attractions including Roman ruins, a beautiful cathedral, park, museum and shopping in our view better than Oxford Street. Exeter Quayside is also near to the shops which also a great place to walk, shop, eat or hire bicycles.
