People love coming to stay at Pipits Retreat; here’s what some of them have to say:
We have stayed at Stonehayes Farm for two years in a row now and will certainly be rebooking for next year! The accommodation is fantastic, the location is beautiful and the hosts are incredibly accommodating. A faultless experience that we can’t recommend highly enough! Eddie Oct 2021
10/10 Our Granddaughter really enjoyed the trampoline and the swings. We love the location and the beautiful surroundings. Spiller Sept 2021
We really enjoyed our stay at Stonehayes Farm. The house was immaculate, the local area is stunning and the games room is a great asset for evenings and rainy days. Would definitely recommend to a friend! James Sept 2021
Amazing place to stay! Beautiful setting, clean and welcoming hosts. Krystle Aug 2021
Stayed at Pipits Retreat for a relaxing weekend with some friends and we had a lovely time. It's beautifully decorated and very cosy. The hosts were on hand to answer any questions and were very welcoming. Absolutely amazing views and would also be great for families as there is lots to do for children. Thank you! Rebekah Aug 2021
10/10 We thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation and location. We have had an amazing stay and will be returning. Campbell July 2021
Stonehayes Farm is an amazing location with beautiful views across the valley to the hills. The cottages are all comfortable, clean, well equipped, spacious and delightful to stay in. We would recommend it to anybody from couples to families or a group of friends in several cottages. David June 2021
8/10 We loved the complex and have stayed 3 times in different cottages. Once our family hiring all the cottages. Beautiful setting. Loved the welcome pack. For the older generation Burrow Farm Gardens were a true gem with a lovely tea garden and rooms. For families Babacombe model village. Woods June 2021
9/10 - Our oldest missed the playhouse and slide but all the new play equipment was great and the games room having been refurbished was great. Nothing else really, it’s a lovely place to stay and lots to do within a reasonable drive. Thanks, we will come back! Pecorama was great for our kids age 3 and 6 but wouldn’t have much for kids much older. Lyme Regis is nice but not much sand and very busy in the sandy stretch but fossil hunting was fun. Exmouth was our stand out beach day. We did Paignton Zoo when it was less sunny and kids really enjoyed it. Joyce June 2021
10/10 Despite the weather we had a really enjoyable stay. The accommodation had a really warm and comfortable feel to it and would love to come back again at some point in the future. Lyme Regis, Sidmouth, Beer, Branscombe Beach and Colyton are all worth a visit. Woolfson May 2021
This is a very pretty, comfortable property surrounded by beautiful countryside and very peaceful. Honiton is a short drive away for essentials. We stayed here to attend a vintage car hill climb at Wiscombe Park. Highly recommend this property and for larger families there are other properties in the same location. Jenny May 2021
8/10 - It is a lovely property and very comfortable for four people. The surrounding views are beautiful. Ross May 2021
We had a lovey stay - the accommodation was clean, comfortable and against a beautiful back drop! There is also lots to do nearby! Clare April 2021
Great place to stay, lots of nice touches and great space and location. Cal Jan 2021
Great stay and a lovely collection of barns converted into a clean and stylish space. EPR Oct 2020
You would struggle to beat both the location and accommodation at Stonehayes Farm, it truly is a magical spot. The hosts were exceptionally accommodating and couldn’t have been more helpful and enthusiastic and made our stay just perfect. We will certainly be booking again for next year! Eddie Oct 2020
9/10 We absolutely loved having the forest on our doorstep in which we took lovely walks. I think the thing we missed was the chickens around the cottage as our previous stays had them. Overall we had a really nice time. Smith-Birch Oct 2020
10/10 We loved visiting the World of Country Life near Exeter, the children enjoyed the Falcon display and feeding the deer, as well as many slides and other attractions, including Down the Memory Lane section. We also spent an afternoon in Sidmouth, and had a lovely walk along the sea front. Honiton is a lovely market town with plenty of quirky little independent shops. We just had a great time at the property because it’s so fabulously geared up for families with children; particularly the trampoline was a big hit. The layout of the property suited us well too, and we appreciated to have en suites in both rooms; with the useful downstairs toilet. Great to be able to go for walks just out of the back garden, and not having to travel to do that. Thank you! We will definitely be back. Cox Oct 2020
10/10 Absolutely gorgeous accommodation, modern and clean, great relaxing location. Would recommend to anyone to stay here. Lovely touches with the cake and fresh ground coffee on arrival. Very very helpful and friendly staff. Can't wait to come back x Stringer Oct 2020
10/10 Loved the little touches that make such a difference : meet n greet (such a lovely welcome) local fresh flowers and homemade cake (delicious) Absolutely spotless. Such a friendly and helpful team from the cleaners - caretakers. Views are stunning. Property perfect. Thank you. Robson Sept 2020
We stayed for 2 nights and we had a lovely time. Really well stocked kitchen and the whole property was spotlessly. Very child friendly with stair gates, high chair and travel cot. The beds were really comfortable and the rooms are spacious. We would love to stay again. Thank you. Rebecca Sept 2020
Lovely place to have a break. The space was fantastic and my boy was so very happy. The area outside was amazing. Beautiful views. I would highly recommend this place! So peaceful! Manuela Aug 2020
A really lovely stay in a beautiful location. The hosts were really responsive. Great outdoor space. We (and the dog!) had an amazing time. Gideon Aug 2020
10/10 We loved everything about our stay, thank you. This past week we enjoyed taking marshmallows to the bbq area near the river and roasting them there. Branscombe beach with meal at Masons Arms pub in the village. Pringle July 2020
10/10 The farm is located in a peaceful and isolated area (whilst being only 2 miles away from big supermarkets), and is all very cosy, picturesque, and makes for a perfect country getaway. Highly recommended. We had a great time at Stonehayes, and if we need to stay in the area in future, will definitely check for availability! Chris Jan 2020
9/10 Everyone really enjoyed Christmas at Stonehayes, properties were comfortable and well equipped. Thank you! Batchelor Dec 2019
10/10 We loved our stay at Stonehayes Farm. Our cottage was just fabulous and so well equipped for the children and us. We loved the wood fire and the kids loved sharing a bedroom. We liked the little touches of the kids plastic plates etc and I loved the fact we had a washer dryer in our cottage! We don’t normally return to places as we like to try different ones but we would definitely come back to Stonehayes Farm. We have even thought about coming one Christmas to stay! Thank you for a lovely time! X Elliot Oct 2019
Had a great stay with the family and hope to return again in thew future. A special thanks to Roger for his patience and help. Had a great stay and hope to return again soon. Anton Aug 2019
10/10 Could not be improved upon just wish you were closer! Gilford July 2019
And some earlier reviews:
"We stayed in Pipits Retreat holiday cottage, it was really well decorated and situated in a good area for exploring - 'remote' enough so you could really do what you like, but also very close to towns and villages so you didn't feel you were totally out in the sticks. It was really lovely and we look forward to going back next year."
"Lovely farm, lovely owners and lovely accommodation!"
"Our son had such a fantastic time, it's hard to think of a reason not to go back!"
"A really well presented property, with excellent quality of furnishings and equipment. The open plan really appealed to our two children as well."
"Fabulous week in the country side. Lovely accommodation in an excellent location. The set up is great for babies and children with a great outdoor space."
