Experience the best of West-country hospitality. Award-wining holiday accommodation on real working farms and truly rural properties.

What could be better than an introduction to the countryside by the very people who work it – and have done for several generations in many cases.

The warmth and good nature of farming families will be obvious to you from the moment the door opens into the traditional farmhouse, cottage or converted barn you have chosen to stay in.
