    My husband, 3-year-old son and myself stayed here for 3 nights in early December. We arrived to find a very clean, spacious and homely cottage (all on the first floor) that was well equipped and with ample storage. We were welcomed with stunning views out of every window. Our son loved his little holiday, especially with the animals. The lambs were adorable and our son was in his element stroking them. He found the free-roaming chicken rather amusing. The farm dog was a happy and friendly little thing, too. The wood burning stove was a real treat and we kept this burning throughout the evenings whilst watching TV after dinner. The beds were comfortable and came with electric blankets for those cold winter nights in the countryside. The sound of the animals in the evenings were nice to hear, and waking up to the cockerel was rather refreshing. Whilst there isn't a lot in the immediate area, there is a good pub up the road called The Red Lion that serves good homemade food. There is also a small shop called The Burrow that sells the essentials as well as breakfasts and local produce. We found the locals very friendly. Okehampton is only 10 minutes away if you need a supermarket or other high street shops. Hayes Meadow is a perfect base in which to visit various parts of Devon and Cornwall. We spent a morning at Castle Drogo where we had a personal guided tour which was good fun. Our favourite places such as Torquay, Lynton & Lynmouth, Clovelly and Newquay are all within a little over an hour away from the cottage so it's never too far to travel. Saying that, the cottage is nice enough to stay in all day should you not wish to go out. We can't wait to go back again; we're planning our next visit as I type.

    Lovely, peaceful rural village location on the outskirts of Dartmoor. 45 minute drive to the attractive beach at Sandymouth, Bude. Lots of places to visit if you have the time Local town of Okehampton about fifteen minute drive away. Very relaxing location in which to take a break. Approachable and helpful owner. Would have happily stayed longer than the four nights if finances and time had allowed.

    The cottage was delightful and everyone was friendly and welcoming. The only things stopping the 10 rating for us personally was the intermittent WiFi signal and coverage, the coin meter and we couldn't find a spare loo roll. Nothing detrimental, we still had a lovely time. Beautiful scenery and wildlife.
