    Stayed at Hayes Meadow with other family members and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time in the area. Accommodation was just as described, location was perfect, our hosts very helpful and friendly and the food in the local pub excellent. Would highly recommend.

    We arrived late on the first night. A small jug of milk in the fridge would have been a nice touch. Instead, we had to wait for the local shop to open in the morning. Also, it would be a good idea to let guests know prior to arrival about the £1 meter. The lounge was comfortable and having a separate annex was lovely. The Red Lion pub serves delicious meals!

    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.
