Our group of 9 really enjoyed our week at Boundstone Farm. The table tennis was a big hit and many games of 'round the table' were played!Rosanna was very helpful and responsive. She provided some excellent recommendations and the farm eggs and potatoes were very tasty!The cottage could do with some updating, but for the most part worked well for us.

Excellent stay. Rosanna was a fantastic host we loved the cream tea ready for us on arrival. Thank you for everything the children had a fabulous time playing in the toys and exploring the farm.

A lovely old farmhouse with some amazing old pieces of furniture. A well equipped kitchen. Make sure you let the owner know you want the hot tub because it is not included in the overall cost of the property. The local pub - all of 5 minutes walk away - is very friendly and serves great food. Well worth a visit. No local shops though so make sure you take what you need with you. Some parts of the property could have done with a good old polish. The owner is very friendly and always willing to help with everything from suggested days out to saving the day with olive oil and toothpicks.Yes, I would go again.

Area Details

Bideford

The historic maritime town of Bideford lies on the River Torridge on the North Devon Coast and makes for an excellent base to explore this area of Devon. With a great selection of shops, cafés, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants you won't need to leave the town for anything but there is so much to see and do in the area you will surely want to. Just a couple of miles away is Westward Ho!, with 2 miles of spectacular coastline and a Blue Flag awarded sandy beach. Just sit and enjoy the views or perhaps make a sandcastle or partake in one of the many water-based activities on offer including surfing. The walking is especially good around here with both the South West Coast Path and the Tarka Trail within easy reach. North Burrows Country Park provides 253 hectares of diverse landscapes to enjoy while the award-winning Big Sheep all-weather family attraction and the Ultimate Adventure Centre are just 1 mile away. In summary, this area offers so much for all ages with breathtaking scenery thrown in for free!
