Bramley cottage was lovely and much bigger than we expected, despite having only one bedroom it comfortably fitted us all. It’s probably due a refurbishment in the near future and a larger sofa and a downstairs loo would make it exceptional. There were plenty of frozen breakfast items to purchase in the communal freezer and the farm shop a short distance away has lots of ready meals and an amazing selection of wine plus a coffee shop. Sidmouth was really lovely and we also saw the beavers in Otterton on an evening expedition. There is so much to do in the area we didn’t do everything we ...more
This was our second time staying at Mazzard Farm and again it was wonderful. The owners are really helpful, and they have created a real home from home in a beautiful countryside setting. They were able to tailor the cottage to our bed sharing arrangements which we all really appreciate! There is lots to do in the local area. Mum dad and our preschooler had a wonderful time, we will definitely return.
We loved our stay at Mazzard farm, so much so our eldest wants to come back for his 6th birthday! They enjoyed feeding the chickens and the goats as well as getting to know Rory the dog! There are so many beautiful places to visit nearby and some really amazing farm shops and local producers all within a 30 minute drive from the farm. Thanks so much Ruud and Jacqueline for a lovely week!
We travelled to Mazzard Farm with another family and stayed in Quarenden Cottage which comfortably slept 4 adults, 2 children and a toddler. Booking was straight forward with great communication from host Ruud before we arrived with a list of local attractions, a questionnaire about how we would like the cottage arranged/ any children-related kit we might need (potty, bed rails, baby monitor etc) and offers for in-house pampering treatments. We were a little bit later than planned arriving, but had Ruud’s number beforehand to let him know and he was ready and waiting for us to check in whe...more
We were a group of 6 adults and 4 children ranging in age from 3-12 yrs. The two cottages next to each other suited us very well, although the bedrooms were rather cramped with very little storage space. We shook down within 24hrs though and had a good holiday. The children loved all playing together and with the older ones looking after the little ones it gave their Mum and Dad a bit of respite. The huge outdoor space was great and the trampoline in particular was a real hit with all of them. The fact that there was no access directly onto the courtyard area from our houses was a bit ...more
The cottage overlooks the pretty courtyard and is very well equipped. A good location and friendly and knowledgeable hosts.
Great to be able to have confidence in your hosts in times of COVID. Ruud and Jacqui go the extra mile. Not our first visit .
