    To start with we had a lovely family holiday we all enjoyed especially the dogs they loved the amount of freedom they had in the grounds which is completely secure for them they also enjoyed the runs in the field to back of the property. Ok so now to the niggles and negatives. The owners take £200 security deposit which fair enough but they should actually be paying us £200 to get the scratches out of our car from the overgrown bushes and trees and brambles down the long uneven dirt track that leads to the property, the grass growing in the middle of the dirt track so long it drags underneath the car and front bumper not good at all! The shower in the main bathroom was dreadful it was freezing cold even tho thermostat on it was the highest it would go and the pressure was a trickle! The bed in the master bedroom was uncomfortable the bed was too creaky the good bit about the bed was the size! The whole property is tired looking now it needs some TLC including the grounds there’s weeds and grass growing in the stones and paving slabs for instance which makes it look untidy. For the price we paid for the week was a lot of money we expected 5 star like our previous visit 5 years ago which is what brought us back to this property Sadly as much as we did enjoy our stay we won’t be returning we feel there is better properties out there that suit our needs better. The property is in a lovely location if you like peace and tranquility you definetly need a car as long drive to supermarkets and the beach if you want to take your dogs to the beach like we did. Would also recommend a torch as very very dark The added bonus about this property however was the swimming pool we all enjoyed that.

    Beautiful location and pool amazing.. But let down by cleanliness. Curtains badly stained, highchair dirty, stains on carpet, floors filthy. Bath mat mouldy. Equipment in playroom broken couldn't use bike or crosstrainer. Our car now has several long scratches down the side of it as access road not maintained. Location and pool would draw us back if issues addressed

    Wow, if you are looking for a bit of r & r this is the place for you. The setting is just perfect, the barns very comfortable & the pool is just the jewel in the crown. Due to the beautiful surroundings and literally being in the middle of nowhere expect to drive - but with both Somerset & Devon on your doorstep loads of sites, pubs and beautiful beaches within driving distance. We loved Beer Farm and will definitely be returning again.

    Our second stay at Beer Farm. What a fantastic location. Very remote and isolated - perfect for a very relaxing 'get away from it all' holiday. Having your own pool is always a great bonus and the outside covered veranda is perfect to watch the dusk descend, and listen to the surrounding nighttime wildlife. The garden is safe and secure for our three small/tiny dogs - which is an absolute must for us to be able to be worry-free. We hope to visit again!

    We loved our week at Beer Farm! Set in beautiful countryside with wonderful blue skies to set the scene we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The pool was especially nice and we must have spent half our holiday either swimming, splashing around or relaxing by the pool. We never had to use the log burner in the living room as the weather was so hot but I can imagine how cosy it must be in there if it was chilly or raining outside. The superking bed was extremely comfortable and aided a good night's sleep. All the bed linen and towels were clean, fresh and crisp. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need to cook a 3 course dinner and the outside seating area was an added bonus if alfresco dining is your thing. All in all we loved our stay here and would have no hesitation in making a future booking.

    Really peaceful isolated location , just what we wanted . Swimming pool a big plus . Really enjoyed the wildlife in the surrounding fields . However , the property would benefit from a few touch ups here and there , could be cleaner and for the price would expect at least hand soaps at every sink . Having said that would definetly stay there again .
