3 Self Catering Cottages on a Farm in East Devon

Covid-19 Industry Standard.

Farwood Barton lies in the peaceful Coly Valley amid high hills in the heart of the East Devon countryside near the Jurassic coast. We are a working dairy farm dating from Saxon times. Located just a short distance from the A30/A303 and A35. Perfect for exploring East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset.

Guest Reviews

Immaculate accommodation, welcoming hosts, beautiful countryside (on the days we could see any of it – shame about the weather!) If you want to dine well, visit Millers Farm Shop, on the A35 at Kilmington, for your food shopping. For an attractive, deserted (at least it was while we were there) beach, try Eype’s Mouth, just west of Bridport.

The Wheel House

A huge thank you for a very warm welcome. Your cream tea was much appreciated Judith, a lovely touch! What a beautiful and stunning part of the country this is. Weather very mixed, got wet a few times but it hasn’t stopped us visiting many places. We have stayed in several self catering places up and down the country, but have to say the ‘Apple Loft’ is in first place now, it really is ‘top notch’. We will certainly recommend it to our friends and family.

The Apple Loft

Thank you for a great week, the cottage has been very comfortable and cosy with everything we need. Despite the bad weather we haven’t struggled – thanks to the games barn and Russ and Rex who have kept our boys fully entertained! Thanks for the farm tour, which we will always remember (and the scones too!)

The Leat House

What a wonderful cottage we’ve stayed in quite a few cottages but this really is the tops! Weather has been awful, we were lucky to get here! But never mind, we have still had a lovely relaxing time wish we could bottle the smell and take it home with us!!
Thank you Judith, Julian and Family fur such a lovely time. Sorry to go home, but will come again next year.
