10/10 Stonehayes Farm is just a wonderful place to stay. The area and location is stunning with so much around to explore. We were a large group and stayed in Pippinsands and Siskins Nook. The properties were super clean, well stocked and so comfortable. Pippinsands is a stunning old thatched farmhouse property that has been sympathetically renovated to allow for modern day living without loosing any of its oldy worldy charm, all the fittings and furnishings are excellent, the hot tub is a wonderful addition. Phillipa is an amazing host, very welcoming, very friendly and makes you feel at home straight away - thank you sooo much, we had a wonderful week and 100% recommend you and your properties. luv Kim & Family. :)
The Donkey Sanctuary is a must, the facilities for the donkeys and guests are absolutely first class, we all - adults, children and dogs had a great time. The kids (and adults) had a wonderful morning of fun and mud on the assault courses at The Bear Trail great fun for all. We highly recommend the Segway Forest tour at Haldon Forrest and the kids had a great time on the bike trails there too. We enjoyed Wookey Hole it is always good for a family trip out and then lunch in Wells (where Hot Fuzz was filmed) - fantastic. Killerton is a beautiful National Trust property, the house, gardens & parkland are well worth a visit. A drive through Dartmoor is also a must - beautiful stunning scenery, Dartmoor ponies, sheep and cows around every corner, it's like a drive through safari. There are also some lovely little villages on route - highly recommend. And of course the beaches, we went to Beer and Lyme Regis, again everyone thoroughly enjoyed - sandcastles, a dip and mess around in the sea, ice cream and a walk through the caves - just a beautiful part of the country.

8/10 The house was fantastically well equipped. Bronstein July 2021
10/10 We stayed as part of a wedding party so utilised all of the cottages and facilities. We ranged on ages from 1 to 75 and everyone had the most amazing time. The cottages were spotless and they had everything we needed. The play area, trampoline and hot tub were enjoyed by everyone and the grounds were perfect for games. We would highly recommend the cottages and would consider staying again as a large party. The location was great and the accomodation was spotless Stanger June 2021
9/10 Thank you so much for the stay! It was really lovely. You had made the cottage easy to find (quite a feat in those lanes!), it was clean and comfortable and there were plenty of instructions on how to find everything. There were enough pots/pans to cook a meal and thank you for leaving tea coffee, dishwasher tabs and delicious cake! Very welcome after the long drive. We would love to come back sometime and maybe even hire the bigger house with the hottub as the people there looked like they were having a ball :) all in all thanks very much for a lovely stay.
We liked Goren Farm Wildflower Meadow and the Pig at Coombe and we did the little walk to Dumpdon on the Saturday evening which was very nice to be able to do something on foot from the property. Allen June 2021
8/10 The cottage was perfect for a family of 4, and we particularly enjoyed having our own garden area. The kids loved the games room and trampoline as well as the new swings! Recommend days out at Wildwood Escot, Pecorama, Budleigh Salterton beach and the RAM Museum in Exeter. Wood June 2021
10/10 We had a lovely stay at Siskins Nook, we took our two dogs who loved it too. The cottage was beautifully clean and well presented, and we had a lovely cake and flowers waiting for us on arrival. There was a birthday or hen party at one of the other cottages which was fine on the whole but did disturb our dogs one evening. However, as everyone was aware there were dogs on site, this didn’t cause a problem. Stonehayes is in a great location, nice and rural but near to supermarkets, and a dog friendly beach only 40 minutes away. We would definitely stay again. Suzie June 2021
9/10 We love staying at Siskins Nook, it Is our second time staying and we would like to book again! Thompson May 2021
10/10 Welcomed on arrival, lovely flowers and homemade cake too. Spotlessly clean and a beautiful part of the countryside for walks with our dog, a trip to Sidmouth, and the kids loved the games room! Rosie Apri 2021
10/10 We loved that we could stay with you longer and enjoy the time away. Truman Jan 2021
10/10 The cottage was absolutely lovely. It didn’t take us long to get the log fire started and to tuck into the carrot cake kindly left for us by the hosts. The location is nicely remote and the surrounding areas were great for a nice walk. We made our way to the top of Dumpdon Hill nearby which has some lovely views. The facilities and the games room were a lovely addition. Would happily recommend and would live to visit again in the summer. Stephen Nov 2020
10/10 Everything was perfect for our small family group, very pleasant host. Visit to Lyme Regis. Young Sept 2020
10/10 Beautiful, peaceful stay. Walks from the door and everything you need for a great stay. Suzanne Sept 2020
10/10 Fabulous accommodation and location - highly recommended! Steve Sept 2020
10/10 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A fantastic baby/toddler friendly and well appointed property. A stunning and secluded location, perfect for a relaxing few days away. Nick Sept 2020
10/10 We had a great family break. The trampoline, climbing frame, and games room are great for kids, and we enjoyed walks and eating outside. The cottage was just as described and photographed, and was a good base for exploring Devon and Dorset. We’ll be back! Paul Aug 2020
9/10 Very homely feel. Warm Welcome. We all loved using the games room. Also enjoyed being able to have a bbq and a small fire down by the river. We would recommend Stonehayes Farm to friends and family. We enjoyed coastal walks. Barnett Aug 2020
9/10 Siskins Nook was beautifully appointed, everything was provided including a small welcome pack of goodies and fresh flowers which was lovely. The living and dining area were just right and comfortable, we are used to a bigger TV but that wasn't the purpose of our stay so not an issue! Bedrooms were lovely and cosy and bathroom/shower just right. We were delighted to find that there was an enclosed garden for the cottage and parking right alongside which was perfect. We enjoyed a family barbecue and felt that it was a private space even though we knew all the cottages were full at the time of our stay. The shared area was great for the kids to play on the trampoline and on the football area, and they loved the games room too. Thanks for a wonderful stay, I am sure we will return. Hector July 2020
We had a lovely couple days here meeting up with family. The cottage is well equipped and provided the perfect set up for us to relax and enjoy the surrounding countryside - which is stunning. The place was clean and tidy and we were well looked after. Eliot July 2020
We had a great time at Stonehayes, and if we need to stay in the area in future, will definitely check for availability! Thanks for a lovely couple of days. What a beautiful setting for my parents to meet their new granddaughter. Eliot July 2020
9/10 Warm hospitality and a lovely place. Thoughtful touches like a Christmas tree, biscuits and apple juice in a welcome pack. The hosts made a great effort to meet us on arrival. Thank you for a lovely stay and a very warm welcome! Shelley Jan 2020
Part of a farmyard complex containing few houses all run by the same organisation. We were met and greeted and settled in by the lovely managers. There’s a small garden per house, as well as communal games room and garden with trampolines and swings. Only a short drive from Honiton, it’s in a good location too and suited our needs very well. It’s well heated and kept nicely, with helpful people on hand during the day. Two options for parking and all general needs met. Two bedrooms with double beds plus a spare folded away if needed. Nice living area and basic appliances too.
We couldn’t have asked for more from this lovely little house. Lawson Jan 2020
Response from Stonehayes Farm: We are so pleased you had a lovely stay at Siskins Nook over the New Year. We are sorry to hear about the flies - unfortunately this is one of the drawbacks of living in a rural area with farms nearby.
10/10 Siskins Nook is a lovely place to stay and is ideally placed being near to so many beautiful seaside resorts and also to Dartmoor. We really enjoyed our stay there. First Class! Slowly Sept 2019
