“Most welcoming”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My wife and I spent a delightful 7 days in May Cottage. Three Gates farm is situated amongst the quiet Mid-Devon lanes equidistant from the north and south Devon coasts while being very convenient for NT places and many good bistro pubs. The cottage was immaculate, being well furnished with good cooking and food storage facilities. A real plus point is the very complete information on nearby attractions and where to eat so one can be a stranger to Devon and get to the right places. Both Lynn and Jonathan are enthusiastic and very welcoming. I first saw this place on the BBC's "Escape to the Country) about 4 years ago and was very impressed; an impression that proved to be justified. This was our first self-catering "staycation" in the UK for many years. The swimming pool is a real bonus, especially for children - so ideal for the family holiday.

“Perfect rural getaway”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Jon & Lynn were extremely helpful and welcoming hosts. The cottages are beautifully clean & comfortable, the views of miles of Devon countryside were amazing.
Having the use of an indoor pool, sauna & fitness machines, made it the perfect place to stay for a self-catering holiday.
Lots of helpful information on local attractions and eateries are available in the property.
For younger children there is a good play area as well as ducks & geese to help to feed!
Wi-fi was a bit slow, but then that is to be expected in very rural areas.

“Excellent new holiday find for the 'Fab Four Families'”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

people found this review helpful

Just come home from a wonderful weekend break at Three Gates Farm. Between four families we hired all five cottages, so had the pool and park all to ourselves. Each cottage was fantastically well equipped, Jonathan & Lynn have thought of everything - from plenty of mirrors (essential when the majority of your party are girls), to plug covers in every socket!
Although the cottages are 'in the middle of nowhere' it really isn't a very long drive to Tiverton the nearest town. There are many walks and national trust properties locally and we have all decided there is nothing for it - we are going to have to return!
ps The only reason I gave a 4 for sleep quality was because our bed in May cottage was too hard! But we realise that is a personal preference!

we stayed in May Cottage and found it in perfect order just what we needed complete with welcome scones. Beautiful location out of the way which is what you want to get away form it all.
Swimming pool nice surprise for holiday cottages it is not standard in UK and it was great my only comment was sauna instructions a little complicated but I got it on to complete my relaxation.
We would stay there again highly recommend it.

“Perfect Relaxing Break”

We were delighted to have found this beautiful place to stay. Our cottage was clean warm, modern and very well equipped. The owners are extremely accommodating and have great knowledge of the area and things to do. Having the pool was a huge bonus after a long day out and about a relaxing swim was most welcome. We were so impressed that we are going back in May and I fully recommend this Devon treasure to all.
