We’re lucky. Our guests love coming to Stonehayes Farm and they come back year after year. Here are some of the lovely things they say about Dippers Rest:
We enjoyed our stay at Dippers Rest. It was a great base for us as we were visiting family nearby. The views are amazing and the outdoor facilities perfect for young children (weather dependent!). Tim Oct 2021
Amazing location and property. Carol Sept 2021
Great place to stay with fantastic facilities! Sophie Sept 2021
9/10 The position of Stonehayes Farm is particularly apt - its secluded, quiet with incredible views over an AONB. The river at the bottom of the field is magical. However the coastal options are 30 minutes away which for me is great because we can enjoy the bustle of the sea front and the peace of the countryside. Road connections are good. The care and attention from the owners is obvious - they are lovely accommodating people.

9/10 We love Dippers Rest, perfect accommodation for 6 of us. A few sun loungers for the sunnier weather would be great. Hope to return soon. Hollies Fishing Lake (Trout Farm, Sheldon). Pretty little spot for fly fishing. Howard July 2021
10/10 It was our second visit to Stonehayes. We absolutely love it every time. The house is clean, the hosts Philippa and Sam are wonderful and make you feel at home, the view, the outdoor space, everything is just the best. Hopefully we can return to Stonehayes very soon in the near future. We recommed Branscombe to visit. Folscher June 2021
Lovely play to stay with beautiful scenery. We wouldn’t hesitate to book again! Sam June 2021
This was a peaceful and tranquil setting with lovely views, yet not far from amenities. Great modern accommodation with everything you need provided. Beverley June 2021
Fantastic stay: the cottage was great and well equipped and the garden a fantastic and safe place for children to run around. Great location in the gorgeous countryside and 30 min drive from the coast. Laurene May 2021
9/10 The house worked very well for our needs. Beautiful setting. Steele April 2021
9/10 We loved Dippers Rest and felt a very warm welcome there and look forward to a return visit when necessary Covid restrictions are reduced. All I can think of is perhaps an oven mitten to open the woodburner door, I guess this may also be a Covid thing too!! The property was beautifully clean and comfy, many thanks to all the team for making our stay so enjoyable. Bennett Oct 2020
10/10 Much enjoyed staying at Stonehayes. Very comfortable and stylish. Loved the log burner. A tea pot would have been great (how English are we!) Howard Oct 2020
Stylish, comfortable and well equipped. Great communication from host. Very peaceful location. Covered parking. Vicky Oct 2020
10/10 An abundance of long/medium and short walks beginning at your doorstep. Get a map, dress for the weather and get out into some of the most stunning countryside. First class accommodation in every respect. Immaculately presented and superbly equipped. Welcoming, friendly and helpful owners . Cannot fault in any way! Farthing Oct 2020
10/10 Loved Dippers Rest - the property was of a really high standard, we felt at home straight away! The chocolate cake and tea/coffee was a lovely touch - as were the jar of beautiful flowers! We will be back. Thank you to Philippa and her team for looking after us so well! Merriman Sept 2020
Myself and my family really couldn’t fault this place. What a beautiful setting to wake up to every morning, the local town was 10 minutes away and Sidmouth beach is half an hour away. We will definitely be coming back. Katie Sept 2020
10/10 We had a wonderful time during our stay. My wife and I like to walk and the area was particularly good for this. We have 3 teenage boys who liked using the games room. During the day we would go to the seaside which was only 30 minutes drive away. We liked the fact that there was barbecue facilities available which we used on a couple of occasions.The whole accommodation was presented to a high quality. Indeed there was a small office area in one of the rooms which was used get in contact with the office. The weather fortunately was in our favour, but the only recommendation is to do with the weather and specifically the things to do in the areas should the weather not be in your favour as you would be confined to the building. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay
PS: The welcoming cake was delicious too Edwards Sept 2020
9/10 The property was welcoming. Very well stocked kitchen with bowls, pans, utensils. etc. Towels are soft. A very easy place to relax. Pringle July 2020
9/10 We loved Dippers, it was perfect for Christmas, we put lots of lights around and it looked lovely. Enjoyed the lovely views across the fields. The boys in the party enjoyed playing pool, maybe a hot tub for the girls would’ve been nice.
Thanks for a great stay, Stonehayes is lovely and we’ll be back. Batchelor Dec 2019
10/10 We really enjoyed our stay at Dippers Rest. The decor, space and surroundings were fantastic and perfect to help us make many family memories. The surrounding grass area and field were perfect for our dog to run around. Our boys also enjoyed the trampoline and games room. On top of this, Philippa was so friendly and helpful from arrival to departure. So please pass on our thanks! We look forward to returning again next year and may even wish to stay in one of your other beautiful cottages. Pinnington Oct 2019
10/10 We really enjoyed staying in your accommodation. Beautiful position, spotlessly clean and great communication. Onion Sept 2019
10/10 The whole farm was wonderful - the accommodation spacious, modern warm and comfortable, the hospitality packs were really good, the 4 year old loved the trampoline, play area and the games room. It worked so well for an extended family group. There is so much else to see in the area that we will definitely be back!
The booking and check in process was quick and easy - And thank you so much for refunding my deposit so quickly.
Every day was great - even the wet and windy ones. Loved Lulworth Cove, the walk up to the Hill Fort through the bluebell meadow, the trip to Lyme Regis, the bird sanctuary, Branscombe beach and particularly Powderham Castle Williams - April 2019
