Enjoyed our week here, very comfortable and well equipped apartment. Thank you for the cream tea and flowers. Lovely views from the apartment, it would be nice to stay here when we could sit in the garden and enjoy the scenery. I didn't realise North Devon was so hilly.

Thank you so much for the warm welcome to our honeymoon! The apartment was everything we could have wished for - and more besides. Introducing Paul to North Devon was made so much easier by yourselves and this wonderful place. We shall return...

Mrs Paul Rogers

Really enjoyed our week here. Scenery beautiful, made even more so by the excellent weather. One of the best holiday homes we have stayed in, clean and tidy and well equipped. Thanks for the welcome pack, the scones and clotted cream went down very well. Enjoyed plenty of walks - The Torrs, Hillsborough to Hele Bay and Capstone Hill. Views of Ilfracombe wonderful. Further afield, Valley of Rocks, Saunton Sands well worth it. Only sorry we couldn't stay longer. Thanks to Steph and Mick for being so welcoming.

Mr Graham Thompsom

Great two weeks. One of the best places to stay. Thank you for the Cream Tea and flowers. Very enjoyable walks at Mortehoe, Lee Bay and Baggy Point. Otter cycle hire very good value for Tarka Trail. Thank you Steph and Mick for being very welcoming. Hope to see you next year.

Lovely Self Catering accommodation. One of the best we have stayed in.

Mrs L Watkinson

Farthings Nest

11 Jul 2019

Farthings nest is probably the best equipped and furnished holiday property that we have stayed in. As stated by previous customers the cream tea and flowers were very much appreciated. We had a very enjoyable 2 weeks there walking the coast path and visiting National Trust and RHS properties leaving us worn out but very relaxed. The only drawback for non walkers is the steep walk back from town, other than that it is in a very convenient position with Tesco, just up the road, and for driving to various attractions easy access to main routes. Steph and Mick were perfect hosts, not intrusive but there if you need them. We would highly recommend Farthings Nest if you plan visiting North Devon.

Mr Robert Bridgland

This is the best self catering accommodation that we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many over the years. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The view was magnificent.

We've had such a wonderful week and are sad to be leaving . It's a proper home away from home and everything we could possibly want was here. Being back in North Devon has brought back so many happy childhood memories. I'll be recommending here to my parents and can't wait to come back. Thank you. Sara and Joe
