Lovely stay at Smythen Farm Holiday Cottages hosted by Bill and his farm animals. The kids loved it - especially the upside down cottage. Thanks for a lovely stay in beautiful North Devon.

We stayed here for the May half term, in Honeysuckle cottage. There was plenty of space for two adults and two kids, the kitchen was well equipped and there was even a washing machine (very useful when you have two little boys!). The cottage faced the courtyard (the swimming pool). Some of the cottages face onto the field, so have an amazing view. The farm is lovely, there are animals to feed, a small heated and covered swimming pool, playground and play room. Kids
