Nestled amid Devon’s picturesque Blackdown Hills, yet just 20-minutes from the M5, Stonehayes Farm is a scenically set cluster of cottages that are ideal for making a quick escape to the country. Plus, with the Jurassic coast its quintessential seaside towns less than half an hour’s drive away, days on the beach will definitely be on the cards as well!

The Grade-II listed farm is a former thatched Devon long house with barns and outbuildings which owners Les and Lesley have transformed into contemporary, 4-star holiday cottages. Each of the five cottages has its own individual charm and combines character features such as exposed original stone walls and beamed ceilings with contemporary indulgences such as log burning stoves, cosy leather sofas, flat screen TVs, DVD players and granite-topped kitchens equipped with all modern amenities.

Besides the lovely cottages themselves, Stonehayes Farm is set in 17-acres of garden and grounds which lead to the small River Luv. Children can help the owners with feeding time for the resident chickens, pigs, sheep and ducks or tire themselves out on the 14ft trampoline and climbing frame. To keep everyone occupied rain or shine, the cottages also share a large games room, complete with table football, table tennis, pool table and darts. Each of the cottages have their own grassy area with outdoor dining furniture and barbecue, so it’s well worth paying a visit to the region’s farm shops or the coast to feast on home reared meats, fantastic fresh fish and Somerset cider. To get even closer to nature, a new riverside camp fire and BBQ is also popular for toasting marshmallows and having a sing song or bedtime story under the stars.

  • Such a gorgeous location and the owners were so friendly and helpful.Review dated 15/07/2013

  • Stonehayes farm is in a beautiful setting and perfect for kids. Fantastic play area and the owners are so welcoming - our son loved feeding the animals with them every evening. We stayed in Grandads which is perfect for a family of 3, all our requests for baby equipment were met with high hair, baby bath and toys all provided. There was also a fresh warm loaf, eggs, milk and a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival - what more could you ask?! Highly recommended.Review dated 19/05/2013
