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 we love the 14ft trampoline and climbing frame with swing and slides. 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.

Accommodation Overview:

Shippen sleeps 5+cots in 2 bedrooms comprising a double with 5ft bed and ensuite shower room, and a triple with three singles, two of which can be attached to become a 6ft double. One of the lounge sofas is also a double sofa bed. The family bathroom has bath tub with shower whilst the kitchen is equipped with washer dryer, dishwasher, oven, hob, fridge, freezer, wine cooler and microwave. Outside, there is a private garden with lovely views, a BBQ and dining furniture.

Location Information

Stonehayes Farm is set on the edge of the Blackdown Hills in Devon, just 2 miles from the market town of Honiton which has a good variety of shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs and take-aways, plus a street market on Tuesdays and Saturdays. 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. In fact, families staying at Stonehayes Farm are spoilt for choice with the variety of things to see and do within easy reach and whatever the weather, in Devon, Dorset and Somerset.

  • Our stay at the cottage was brilliant. I would recommend it to families with children of any ages. The cottages are to a high standard and equipment needed for a toddler was provided. The games room and outdoor play equipment was beyond our estimations. My little boy absolutely loved feeding the animals and it made our holiday extra special!Review dated 23/06/2018

  • Our 7 year old son described it as "the best holiday cottage in the world" and we liked it just as much! Loved getting involved with feeding the farm animals and the children's play area was fab. Lesley and Les made us feel very welcome.Review dated 30/05/2015

  • Beautifully clean and luxurious interior of property and lovely surroundings and playground for the kids. Lots of extra touches like homemade bread and eggs on arrival and toys in the property and all essential baby gear etc so less to pack. The owners are lovely and the children loved meeting the pigs and chickens especially.Review dated 01/11/2014

  • Best self catering accommodation we've ever stayed in. Great attention to detail, everything very well thought outReview dated 26/09/2014

  • Really enjoyed our stay here. Les & Lesley were very welcoming and our toddlers absolutely loved the play area and visiting the animals - so much so that they didn't want to leave at the end of the week! Would definitely recommend. Would be ideal for a group of friends / family in adjoining cottages, especially those with young children.Review dated 30/05/2014

  • A real home from home. The accommodation was first class with wonderful touches. .. fresh flowers, eggs and bread on arrival! The kids play area was fantastic and within easy viewing of the cottage. Our 3 year old loved feeding the animals every afternoon and collecting all the eggs. The location was great with most attractions within a 1 hour drive. We would highly recommend to any family and will certainly be back. ...with friends!Review dated 24/02/2014

  • Fantastic property, great for kids and adults.Review dated 23/07/2013

  • This is the perfect getaway for anyone, not just those with children. The welcome we received from Les and Lesley was wonderful and their welcome pack was delicious! We had a freshly baked loaf from Lesley most days and even had their own award winning sausages. There is nothing to fault here as they have thought of everything! Our two young children loved feeding the animals and collecting the eggs and didn't want to leave. We will be returning soon to this gem of a place.Review dated 01/07/2013
