Great open plan living space, in a lovely location. The farm shop is one of the best I have been to.

Great, open plan living space, in a lovely location. Plenty of room for the 6 of us and the dog. Served its purpose of providing a weekend away in what has been a strange year. Would be nice to explore the grounds further in the nicer weather.
The farm shop, which is only a short walk away from the property is one of the best I have been to.

We have been several times and love every minute of it. The views are perfect. We have stopped at the pheasant as well. With the virus you have made it all comfortable for us.

We have a great stay within The Rookery lodge. There were 6 adults and a dog "Colin". We had a complimentary cream tea at strawberry field farm shop and restaurant which was very yummy!

On arrival to the estate you follow a long lane which passes farm land and pretty ponds, leading onto the beautiful accommodation. There is plenty of parking available for all the lodges. Opposite the accommodation was a mummy goat and her baby, she was super cute but also a little bit of a cheeky lady as she kept getting out under the fence.

The estate has plenty of land to explore, we cycled it daily. They have a lovely stream and seating areas throughout as well as a big fishing lake!

The only niggles we had, were the flies (understandable as it's a working farm) and lack of cupboard space for food etc. The WiFi would come and go but wasn't too much of a problem.

The wooladon estate is in a great location to go off and explore Devon and Cornwall. We would highly recommend this place.

Thank you for having us.

The Rookery is a spacious cottage set on a lovely country estate alongside three other cottages and a country house. Just off the A30 yet completely secluded in its own grounds. Ideal base for exploring both counties of Devon & Cornwall. Milk and biscuits on our arrival, plus a free breakfast and afternoon tea at the hosts' farm shop! (Just around the corner!) Fantastic walks around the estate. Large garden area and fields to play in. Great for dog owners. A private fishing lake too. Very friendly and welcoming hosts in Adam & Laura. We asked for extra hangers, pint glasses and baking trays and these were delivered swiftly. Also replaced a faulty toaster on same day (thank you, Stephen!). Nice country decor and paintings, although in need of a touch up in a couple places. The two downstairs bedrooms have a double bed and a sofa bed so they can sleep 8, plus another two in a double room upstairs. Our bed linen and towels were changed after the first week too. The storage in the kitchen for food for a two week stay is limited as all of the cupboards are taken up with crockery etc; a couple of wall units and a larger fridge would resolve this. Storage in the bedrooms is also limited; only one bedroom had a chest of drawers and the two downstairs bedrooms share a wardrobe - albeit a large one - underneath the open staircase. Each bedroom would benefit from a chest of drawers - especially for those guests staying for two weeks or for multiple families who would struggle to share a wardrobe. Problems with WIFI throughout our two week stay; hosts repeatedly tried to resolve this for us during our stay and are keen to improve the WIFI for future guests. Overall, a fantastic two weeks with plenty of sunshine thrown in. Would definitely recommend.
