This is a gorgeous cottage with everything you could need for your stay, including toys etc for little ones. The area is lovely with plenty to do locally. The chickens kept us amused all week, and our son enjoyed visiting the pigs. All in all a great place to holiday and we cannot recommend highly enough!

“A real 'home from home' in the beautiful Devon countryside.”

Book a holiday at Windover Farm Cottage and you’ll find everything promised on the website, and more.
The cottage is situated in a most peaceful setting and is a real ‘home from home’, with everything needed for a comfortable stay.
Sarah made us feel most welcome, and had very kindly unpacked our grocery delivery before we arrived. This meant we only had to make a cup of tea before tucking into the enormous homemade Victoria sponge she had left for us.
We really enjoyed looking after the chickens and relaxing in such peaceful surroundings, and were spoilt for choice when deciding where to go for days out.
We can’t recommend the cottage highly enough, and will certainly be back for another visit.

“Lovely cottage, perfect for families”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a fantastic week at Windover Farm Cottage - none of us wanted to come home! The cottage was beautifully decorated, clean and welcoming. Sarah was friendly and helpful, and had included lots of lovely touches such as a cake, jar of homemade jam and a pack of sausages on arrival. The children's toys, books and DVDs were much appreciated, and we loved looking after the friendly chickens for a week! The cottage is set within lovely countryside, and is within easy reach of beaches, great walks and fantastic days out. We really enjoyed the local National Trust properties and Escot Country Park.

“Beautiful cottage in a fantastic location - will be coming again”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Came here for a quiet, stress-free honeymoon and got exactly what we wanted. Very comfortable, everything we needed was there, including a couple of things in the fridge fresh from the farm. Really well-done-up cottage with nice personal touches. Beautiful countryside with long or short walks around. Sarah lives next door and regularly checked in to check we had everything we needed, but in no way intruded on our privacy. Had slight problems getting the DVD player to work but Sarah was very helpful, immediately offering to buy a new one, though we worked out quite quickly we'd been using it wrong. Ordered a very good curry one night. Perfect summer sun was not included in the contract but an added bonus. Great both for romantic getaways and with children, as there are chickens at the bottom of the garden (fresh eggs for breakfast!) and the farm is next door. Overall, would heartily recommend.

“We can't wait to go back”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Beautiful cottage that is really well appointed. Great instruction manual for the heating etc. We couldn't have been given a warmer welcome and the scenery was idyllic. We had a great time looking after the chickens and collecting the delicious eggs. Feeding the pigs was very entertaining as was meeting Whistle the dog. It was a great location to pop to many of the nearby towns and it was always wonderful to get back to our temporary home. I'm already trying to think of excuses to go back for another stay. Although we didn't have any children with us there were enough toys and games around to easily keep them entertained for hours.
