BFB's Overview

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.


Accommodation Overview:

Cider House sleeps 4+cots in 2 bedrooms comprising a double with 5ft bed and a twin with two singles that can be attached to become a 6ft double. The family bathroom has both a bath tub and a shower whilst the kitchen is equipped with washer dryer, dishwasher, oven, hob, fridge and microwave. Outside, there is a private garden with lovely views, a BBQ and dining furniture.

Honiton Pottery Shop and Milkshake Bar is well worth a visit, where little messy monsters can ‘throw’ and paint pots, make hand and foot print plaques, tuck into knickerbockerglories and choose an exotic smoothie.

Nearby Bartletts Farm Shop near Honiton has a butchery for home reared meats, a deli, bakery, fruit and veg making it an ideal spot for picking up a long list of local goodies!


Besides exploring the surrounding rolling countryside, country lanes and thatched cottage villages, Stonehayes Farm is less than half an hour’s drive from lovely seaside towns and beaches including, Beer (8 miles), Sidmouth (10 miles) Lyme Regis (14 miles ) and Branscombe (13 miles). Families can go fossil hunting along the rocky shores around Lyme Regis, meet furry long-eared friends at Sidmouth’s Donkey Sanctuary and go train crazy at Beer’s Pecorama.
