About the Owner
About Sophie Goodall
We are Martin and Sophie Goodall, we have 2 children called Martha and Will and we live in Treaslake Farm and run the on site holiday cottages and facilities we have here.
We have a selection of pets and animals - 2 dogs called Ollie and Sam, a cat called PussCat, Izzie and Jemima our friendly rabbits and a selection of hens, ducks, pigmy goats and sheep live here too.
We love living in the countryside and were lucky to take the opportunity of moving here only a year ago from Bristol, after spending many years holidaying in East Devon.
Sophie Goodall purchased this apartment in 2014
Why Sophie Goodall chose East Devon
After falling in love with the area, we bought Treaslake Farm and Holiday Cottages, moving from Bristol and since then have been working very hard to refurbish and improve all the cottages, grounds and facilities. We really are living the dream!!!
The children are enjoying living in the countryside - helping care for the chickens, goats and sheep with their lambs. The facilities we have here are fantastic for adults and children - indoor heated swimming pool, outdoor children's play area, games room, level lawn for outdoor sports.
What makes this apartment unique
We love living here - within the heart of the East Devon countryside, yet within easy commuting distance, either by road, rail or air travel.
Our property is in a beautiful, peaceful, rural setting, yet only 2 miles from the bustling town of Honiton, with it's array of shops (famous for lace and antiques!), restaurants and street market twice a week.
We are only a short distance away from many of the best beaches and coastline of Devon and Dorset - from Lyme Regis, to Seaton, Beer, Branscombe, Sidmouth, Exmouth and Topsham. The historic city of Exeter is an easy 25 minute drive. There are numerous attractions and events within the local area, for all age groups and interests.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Spent a week with my daughter and my mum, so many things to do and see. Cottage was d e delightful, gorgeous views, lovely animals. Sophie was so welcoming. My family loved it, definitely coming back for a second time.
Would highly recommend
Sophie and Martin could not have been more friendly and welcoming. Beautiful location.. Everywhere was lovely and clean..the pool and games room were ideal for the children . our 13 year old and 9 year old loved it. Would definitely visit again. Oh yes and the scones, jam and clotted cream on arrival.... What can I say other than delicious!!! Thankyou Sophie and Martin x
Lovely holiday retreat
What a wonderful time we had staying on the farm, the accommodation was beautifully laid out and catered for our every need.
The farm is beautiful with the goats a real hit with our children (6 & 3). Lots to do close by in the sunshine or the rain, Sidmouth beach was beautiful and we spent the rainy days bowling or at the cinema. The Pool is also great to have on your doorstep - again the children loved it. We would recommend staying here.
Lovely family friendly farm
We stayed in Owl cottage which was set slightly away from all the other cottages and next to a goat paddock. Our teenage children loved going straight out to see the 5 new born baby goats. The cottage was clean and well maintained with wooden floors throughout - amenities in the cottage included tv with dvd, fridge, washing machine, microwave and dishwasher. All cooking utensils and cutlery provided. Also included bath towels and dish towel.
On site was a small swimming pool with games such as volley ball and a blow up goal, a pool table, ping pong table, trampoline and large wooden climbing frame. All the cottages were close by and the whole place had a friendly homely feel, with the owner popping in go show us around. After a long journey to get there we were greeted with a cream tea on the table and milk in the fridge for a cup of tea.
The owner lived on site so was available should you need her and she was also very useful in giving us ideas for days out as she had children herself so knew the best places to go.
The site itself was in close proximity to many attractions, including Devon Crealys, Escot, Bicton Park and Pecorama.
I would certainly recommend this site as a holiday destination and my children are already asking when we can go back.
